8x56r

Always on the lookout for ammo to feed my old surplus firearms. I picked this up a few years ago when a fellow came in the lgs where I hang out with a box of old stuff..belts, holsters and some old ammo. The ammo caught my eye as he claimed it was 8mm and told the shop owner it would be easy to sell. Well the shop owner knows that I like the old stuff and asked me what I thought..so I told him it would not be so easy to sell as it was not 8mm that would feed an old Mauser but was 8x56r for use in the Steyr Model 95 straight pull. Anyhow I gave the guy $ 20 for what he had all on clips. I cleaned it up and it works well in the Model 95, but kicks like hell. Here's what I'm talkin about.

You are going to have fun cleaning the rifle after shooting that corrosive ammo.

I shoot a lot of corrosive ammo through my surplus guns. I give my firearms a thorough cleaning be it corrosive or non corrosive. I clean my old surplus guns as if corrosive ammo was used or not...been doing it that way for years..not that big of a deal. Y'all stay safe.
