    Help Finding Remington 8mm Mauser Ammo

    It's a small and trim clamshell-actioned gun, probably made for a woman or boy in the Prince's court.

    Help Finding Remington 8mm Mauser Ammo

    Thanks for the heads up. I really liked having them in Mound House, but they sold and moved across the country. I actually sold them some oddball ammo I had collected over 50+ years. The Remington regulates perfectly in this gun. The rifle was made between 1912 and 1916 for Crown Prince...

    My son harvested his turkey.

    "know nothing" about turkey hunting... Sometime experience hunting, intuition, and pure blind dumb luck all combine into great success. ;) No money can buy those smiles. A belated congratulations. L2S

    Help Finding Remington 8mm Mauser Ammo

    I have a double rifle in 8mm "J" bore that will shoot REMINGTON ammo. The Rem ammo used a bit smaller diameter bullet than the standard "S" bore .323, and the barrels slug to .320. The .321 diameter Remington factory loads work perfectly and regulate well. This rifle is chambered for the...

    Retired 71 year native Nevadan, who hunted a lot until several mishaps broke too many things. I live a great spartan life now, mentoring my grandson. He's a hunting/fishing fool, and he's good at both. I like hunting with Classic drillings and other combo guns and with Mausers in 8mm and 9,3X62...

    Any Drilling Users?

    That configuration is called a bock-drilling. They're uncommon and expensive. Any double rifle drilling configuration requires a lot of hand regulation, firing, correcting, and firing again until the rifles and shotgun barrels shoot the same place. I've owned a DR drilling in 8X57JR/8X57JR...

    Any Drilling Users?

    Correct. They're commonly called a BBF (bockbuscheflinte). Still, they're a useful combination gun, and I wish I had one in my truck.

    Any Drilling Users?

    You bet they count!! They're one of the most useful guns ever made. Talk about great meat getters for around the camp or as a survival gun...

    Any Drilling Users?

    Mac Sorry for the late reply. :001_unsure: This 16/16/6.5X57R has a 22 mag barrel insert that shoots 1 1/2" groups. It drops in to a regulating slot in the extractor and repeats perfectly every time it's re-installed. I have the same type insert for my 12/12/7X65R drilling, a Simson 90...

    Any Drilling Users?

    I saved all summer as a kid to buy a drilling from my dad's friend. I was 12 and mowed lawns with a push mower. I've been a combination gun nut ever since...55 years now. I love this little 1955 Sauer LUX drilling in 16/16/6.5X57R with a 6X Hensoldt in Suhler claw mounts. The 6.5X57 is close...

    Hello to all my fellow NV shooters and hunters. I'm a 67 Y/O NV native and have hunted the State for 60 of those years now. I had my grandson, Owen, out for his first dove hunt yesterday. We took 10 birds each and stopped shooting. We had plenty. There were heavy flights coming into the field...
