Reloading Sellier & Bellot 8mm Mauser

Just picked up a yugo m24/47. Cabelas has the S&B 8mm mauser (196 gr. soft point) and want to know if the brass is easily reloadable. Some of the posts say that the primer pockets have to be reamed to US primer depth. Should I reload the S&B brass or should I just buy Remington brass? Also does anybody have any experience with this S&B load or any hints/tips on reloading the 8mm mauser?

Thank you,

Nothing specific to 8mm, but in my experience with .30-06 S&B brass, I did have high primers and I just don't think it's good quality brass. It must be very thin because it is much lighter than Rem. and WW. Someone gave me a bunch of it and I reloaded once and tossed it.

I would just buy the new Rem brass myself.

Thanks for the info. I believe I will just buy the components and load my own.

If you want some good shootin' ammo to reload, try the Hornady 8x57 ammo. Winchester brass.
