Doesn't someone still make 1950s surplus 8mm or .303? There must be someone since there's still a demand for it.

How exactly would someone go about making 1950s vintage ammo?

If you are talking about making military ammo to the same specs as they did at the time, yeah, someone is:

I got a flyer from SOG today that said that they had got some 50's Yugo 8mm.
Checked the web site, and it shows in stock.
Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

There is no shortage of old 8mm surplus online. Much harder to find at shows these days, however. Then again, I rarely go to shows these days, first because you rarely find a better deal than online and second because I'm more tempted to buy something I don't need when I can actually handle it in person.

The popularity of 8mm is such that there are several reputable small scale manus of very good new 8mm such as GA Arms that make corrosive surplus obselete for me (don't like messing with corrosive ammo, anyway). And S&B and Privi are great deals among major brands.

8mm has never been one of the rounds I shoot like there is no tomorrow anyway. I leave that to 7.62 x 39, 9mm and .22 LR.
