Default Steyr M1886 Kropatschek Ammunition Question

I've got a Steyr Kropatschek M1886 rifle and would like to shoot the thing, but I am having trouble finding brass or dies to make the ammo. Where can I get the components for making this stuff? Furthermore, I've seen several different names for the cartridge it is chambered for. I read it is called 8mm Kropatschek, is that right?

I THINK you have an 8x60R Kropatschek. Data for you:

Thanks for the link C3. After looking into all this, it appears that this project may be bigger than my budget. So, do any of yall have an old set of 8x60R dies they would be willing to part with for a few dollars?
