8mm rifle ammo, what do I have?

Recommended Posts

From your brief description this sounds like surplus, and I think you can safely assume that all surplus 8mm is corrosive.  Some more so than others.  A picture of the box would help.  Better yet, pictures of the cartons, boxes or spam cans contained within the case.  Best of all, picture or description of the headstamp(s) on the cartridges.  Some of the surplus stuff is mixed and repacked.  Back in the 80's, I bought a case of mixed steel and brass cased 8mm.  I got it from someone in Shotgun news for maybe a $.05 per round.  It came in a German wooden case with what appeared to be Finnish markings added.
