I think the 7.92 or 8mm Mauser, whatever you wish to call it, is a very good although an under rated round in the U.S. Most American ammo is loaded at lower pressures but Norma used to load very good ammunition. I have not had one for several years but I would have no hesitation in using one for anything in N. America except for the biggest bears. A very good cartridge in my opinion and hand loading will bring out its best. Good shooting.
