That sounds more like a Steyr M95. Does the bolt handle move back and forth without turning it up or down? If so, try looking here:

If there's a large S or H stamped on the receiver or barrel shank, it's probably 8x56mmR; if not it may be 8x50mmR.

If it's a Steyr M95, the 15 in Wn (eagle) 15 means it was made in 1915.

The W-n 15 means that the rifle was accepted by the Austro-Hungarian Army in Vienna (Wien) in 1915.
