8MM Mauser

Does anyone have an accurate load for the 8MM Mauser using 180GR Bullets that is not in the Nosler Manual. I am having trouble finding IMR 4064 Thanks Coonie

It would be almost impossible to answer this question if you are talking about a milsurp.
Most 8mm Mauser milsurps have varying bores. Commercial 8mm mausers are not real popular here in the USA. If you are wanting an accurate load for a milsurp, I would reseach what type ammo and bullet weight your rifle was designed for and try to duplicate.

I found data on and I shoot the nosler 180 grain ballistic tip in my Serbian mauser. It starts at 43.0 and goes to 49.1 grains. My m-48 seems to like 44.5 which is not very high on the scale. I also am having trouble finding Imr 4064 but was able to get some accurate 4064 which is right next to Imr on the burn chart and I will try it starting low at first of course. Imr 4350 is also supposed to work for the mauser also and I do have some of that. If you have any 4350 he has a load for it also.
