My thanks to all.
I was unaware of the retirement of the .318 ammo. I did shoot this weapon 40 some years ago deer hunting in Pa. usng commercial 8mm Mauser ammo. Since then, it has been in a bag, stored with various family members until I finally settled and retired in Fl. Time to make up for lost time.
I am reloading now for my 9mm Beretta. It should not be hard to transition to 8mm, it's only -1
. I considered starting from scratch; buying brass, power, primers and bullets but I'm leaning toward shooting good commercial ammo and using that brass.
