    8mm Mauser?

    It is a round on par with the .30-06. No flaws, no weaknesses.

    I am slightly addicted to 8mm Mauser.

    I don't own a .30-06, I am majorly addicted to 8x57! 8x57 is the Parent case of .30-06. The .30-06 will push lighter bullets faster, but when you hit 180gr and above, the 8x57 starts to pull away. 100fps up or down really does not make 1 better then the other, they both are outstanding. I don't feel under gunned when carrying mine, even for big bear, w/ the right bullet.
