Its an interesting question and after a bit of thought, if I was nuts enough to do it, I would go with 6.5 x 47.

An 8mm Kurz is an odd entity in that its an intermediate length cartridge in a larger than 30 caliber bullet.

The Stg-44 was truly a unique concept at the time, both in mfg (stamped) as well as the case length and the bridging of two worlds of Machine Guns (machine pistols) and the combat rifle.

Happy end result was the limited though still significant production and the amazing fact we are back to 7.62 NATO (the M-7 x 6.8 round) after all this time.
