Well I really don't know what to say other than the fact that America loaded 8mms is very weak compared to European ammo. A while back I shot some Olympic brand 8mm followed by some Remington Core lokt and and a few handloads, the recoil with the European stuff was at least 30 percent higher than the core lokt. I don't remember the exact powder charge of the handloads but they were 150 grain Hornady over some 3031. As far as recoil goes they where somewhere in between and much more accurate than both.

Yes the 8X57 is ok. But a Mauser re-chambered to a 8MM-06 is even better.

there are many different calibers that the 30-06 has been adapted to. the case is so versatile and works well with many different calibers of bullets.

now todays new cartridge for discussion is the 264 Winchester Magnum.

i know very little about this one, but find it very interesting and would like to learn more about it. so lets discuss it and learn about it.

The 264 Winchester is a great caliber. The problem back when it was released was the lack of the type of gunpowders' we have today.
It was labeled as a barrel burner,and back then it was. But with the new powders we have today,the barrel life would be a lot better.
We have so many different burn rates of gunpowder today,and a lot of the older "Barrel burners" have found new lives.

thanks Hillbilly! i have read about it a bit over the years and have heard good things about it's ballistics. can't honestly say i have ever even run across a rifle chambered in 264 W.M. that i can recall. i know they were offered as a factory chambering, but are they just not common around this part of the country? surely they are not rare.

I can tell you that the .264 Win. Mag. was built on the Holland & Holland belted magnum case which came into the cartridge world around 1910,11 or 12 something like from a company that was born back in the mid or early 1830`s & like the 06 probably has as many if not more cartridges built on it than any other..........

I almost bought a beautiful Winchester 70 in 264 WM several years ago. I drove about 45 miles to go look at it,and loved it until I removed the bolt,and shined my bore light into the chamber. The throat was gone in that barrel,and it would've needed a new barrel on it.
If I could've bought it for a good price,I would've got it,but the owner wouldn't come off his price.
