    They were normally chambered in 8x56R. Some were re-chambered for 8mm Mauser, but I don't believe there were many. Having a professional take a look at it would be the most advisable course of action.

    what lead you to believe that its chambered for 8mmX50r???

    you need to be positivly sure just what it takes before buying any ammo.

    its a full length m95 and doesn't have any markings that it was re-chambered

    well if it really is in 8X50r mm then afaik there is no commercially made ammo, and original rounds are collector items. i believe this will be a reforming, hand loading situation.
     
  8. 8x50r isnt too hard to make from 7.62x54r
