The designation 8mm Mauser or 8x57mm is the SAAMI nomenclature for the 7.92x57mm Mauser cartridge adopted by Germany in 1905. This cartridge is also knows as the 8x57 IS under the specifications of the C.I.P. Due to these discrepancies, marking on the headstamp or box of ammunition may not match the markings on the rifle. This same cartridge is also commonly called the 7.9mm, 7.9mm Mauser, 7.92 Mauser or Cartridge SA 7.92, all depending upon the manufacturer of the rifle or ammunition. This ammo is current commercial production ammo designed to function in bolt action rifles.
Once the ammunition is gone, the Ammo Can has hundreds of uses around the home, shop or range. This can size was originally used to hold 30 caliber belted machine gun ammunition but has been adopted to hold demolition ignition systems and many other items. The Ammo Can features sturdy steel construction with waterproof seals.
