Hey yall!

I got a Steyr Mannlicher 1888 rifle and I ve been searching on the net to find out what ammo it fires. However, there are several different opinions out there and I am now not sure. I know its 8mm but is it plain 8mm,8x52mm or 8x56R or something else??? Also if anyone knows where to get ammo for it, that would be a bonus. All you help is much appreciated! I sure would love to take it out to the range! :cool:

NOPE! Nothing on the barrel to identify the caliber. Just a few markings which allowed me to find out it Austrian. However, I believe it rather 8x56 or an
8x50. I was able to find 8x56 Nazi surplus ammo, mostly from 1938. The rifle is definitely a Steyr Mannlicher 1888, an model that was used for the Austrian infantry.
