    so i bought some surplus 8mm stamped 1946 and the bullet looks like nothing but steel ... my question is will these things ruin my bore? and what would anyone do with these babies, as in what platform would fire them without compromising the bore?

    They are a soft steel jacket and won't harm your bore. Just make sure they are legal to fire in your area (potential fire hazard).

    Good, reliable, HOT loaded- they are corrosive primed, so clean your bore with soap and water after shooting. Run mine thru anything I have with an 8mm Mauser bore. Bought a lifetime supply of it about 3 years ago, been shooting it ever since.

    If they are silver and buff to a shine they are nickel jackets. Very safe, great ammo. It is corrosive as stated, just listen to what has been said about cleaning. I also bought a lifetime supply a while back. $100.00 per 1600 round case.
