The old 8x57 german commission J bullet (it was not a mauser development) was .318". This was changed to the .323" S bullet in 1904, but the older J bullet was produced until WW-II.

The only cartridge I'm aware of that used a .315" diameter bullet would have been the .32-40 Bullard. This was chambered in the Bullard small frame lever action repeating rifle sometime during the 1880's. Hope this helps!
