I bought a rifle recently that fires 8X58R.
I can't find any so does any one on here know where I can some?

If you have dunham's stores in your area, try those, there's at least one in my area where I've seen 8x56r.

The only 8x58R I know of is the Danish Krag cartridge, way long obsolete.
Buffalo Arms has it, $50 for 20 and you need to know the headspace (rim thickness) of your rifle, .060" or .070".

Found mention on that page of an 8x58R Sauer cartridge, too. Even more expensive, $73 a box.

What rifle have you got?

It always pays to know what you are buying and how you are going to feed it.
