8mm. krupp-essen rifle
I have and recently fired (Dec. 26,2011 a rifle that looks very much like the one in your pics. I too receive this when my dad passed away in 1957 (I was 10 yrs. old then) and use this as my only deer rifle, but know very little about it. I am using 8mm. (8mm.x57) rounds and guess I got lucky when buying them without knowing much about the weapon. The rounds left to me in '57 had 256 grain bullets and my current rounds are 196 grain. Any info will be greatly appreciated.
