There is a specific thread for these types of questions.

J&G sales has it in stock for $20.00 a box.

I orders 4 boxes two weeks ago from them, it defiantly has more kick than the Prvi Partizan.

I had my K98 sighted in at 100 yards with the Prvi, the S&B impact was almost 12 inches higher, both were loaded with 196 grn soft points.

I'm going to use it for deer hunting two weeks from today.

If I had a 8mm I think the S&B would be the only ammo I bought... I don't see the point of the watered down 8mm loads like PPU and everything else. Frankly I think if someone isn't smart enough to buy the correct ammo for their weapon I'm not really concerned about them blowing it up...

Wow, a 12" change in impact height at 100 yards is nuts.
