The 8mm Mauser, as it is designated by SAAMI, is also called the 7.92x57mm Mauser. It is a round developed by the German Government in 1903 to enhance and replace its parent cartridge, the Patrone 88, or M.88 as it is commonly called. The enhancements included using a lighter bullet, a 153 grain spitzer bullet, while doubling the amount of smokeless powder. This resulted in an improved maximum effective range with a flatter trajectory.

The history of the use of the 8mm Mauser is interesting, to say the least. It was adopted by the German military in 1903. However, after WW1 and the Treaty of Versailles, post-war Germany could no longer manufacture their own weapons. This caused the production of the 8mm Mauser, along with its rifle counterparts, to be produced in other countries, such as Belgium, Poland, Mexico, and China, just to name a few. Due to it being produced in so many countries, these countries soon adopted the use of the 8mm Mauser into their militaries. Ironically enough, the 8mm Mauser is one out of only two calibers that were used by both sides, the Allies and the Axis Powers, in WW2. (it shares this with the 9mm pistol round.) Today, the 8mm Mauser is popular among European hunters and sportsman and is considered suitable for bringing down all medium-sized game, such as deer, bighorn sheep, wild boar, and some bears. Interesting to note is that Remington Arms offered a limited-edition model of the Model 700 classic bolt action chambered in the 8mm Mauser in 2004.

Each box contains 25 once fired brass shell casings. Headstamps are mixed. This is unprocessed brass sourced from commercial shooting ranges. The casings have been washed and polished, but not resized and may still contain the spent primer. It is recommended that all brass be inspected prior to being reloaded and fired.
