    Default mannlicher-schoenauer model 1908

    Ok so Im new to this rifle I inherated. It came with some western cartridge Mannlicher Model 1908 ammo. I also purchased some 8mm Mauser ammo to use but its not going to work. Im guessing I have an 8x56 and I was wondering if 8x56r ammo will work.
    Thanks for any help

    Carl - 8x56R will not work. Neither will 8x57 Mauser, as you have found out. Best bet for any significant amount of shooting would be to reload. There is a good article in either "Rifle" or "Handloader" magazine from a few years back. Nice rifle to inherit!!
