And remember that with most milsurp rifles the point of impact is several inches above point of aim. I had a BRNO 98. At 100 yds it hit about 5 inches high of point of aim... Just my experience

If you get ready to reload the 8mm, be sure of your bore dimensions, there is some variations out there and I have read where problems have occurred. It pays to be careful with the old milsurp rifles,, I have a few, my favorite a Czech 98, customized in 7mm Remington,, it's a shooter. I do like the Mauser rifles, you can do a lot with them.

I've heard something like this before. Like some have a .312" diameter and some have a .31" maybe.

The military sights shoot high so as to allow a greater point blank range ie: all shots within say 6" of poa out to 300m find a higher front sight or have a smith brazen a piece of brass on top. 2nd point of bore diameters unless it was rebarreled all milsurp 8mm from the great war onwards will be. 321-.323. Us ammo manufacturers purposely download to avoid paying out litigation for overpressure in the old. 318S bore. Think corbon 45-70 they have to put a big labeling so dummies won't use in trapdoors
