At a gun show this weekend, I bought some 8mm Mauser Nazi 1938 marked ammo. I recently obtained a 1937 S/42 RC 98K and thought this might be an interesting period addition to the 98 K.

Closer examination told me this is not intended for a 98K (I think)

The 10 round box of ammo came 5 rounds each on what looks to be two en-bloc clips, similar to the M1 Garand.

Head stamp has an VIII on top 19 on the left 38 on the right and Nazi Waffenamp on the bottom.

Anyone know what weapon this was for?

The Steyr M95, 5 rounds of 8X56R on enbloc clips. Those things kicks like no other, make sure to clean your rifle after shooting though, corrosive

Why, I do believe that I recognize that avatar! :)

What options do you have in regards to 8mm ammo up there?

it's just my family's Scottish clan crest.

We have a local dealer in Anchorage who carries a lot of milsurp ammo. I haven't been there in a while but he should have some surplus 7.92X57.

I bought some Yugo at the gun show that looks bright and clean and one paper-wrapped pack of Turk that doesn't look too good.

We have a problem here in that UPS or FEDEX will not ship ammo to Alaska. Our only alternative is to have an ammo dealer ship by UPS ground to Seattle and then use a freight forwarder to barge it up here. It would only make sense if you are buying several thousand rounds. Some guys pool together to save a bit that way.

It does make me feel a little better knowing I'm not the only one thar did this. I just assummed that the 8mm on the box was an approximation for the actual 7.92. And it was 1938 Nazi marked.

A few years ago a guy in Alaska was looking for 8x56R ammo. Can't remember the name though, he was hunting for it fairly desperately. Maybe he'll see this thread & buy em from ya. ^_^

I gotta case plus of this stuff.nice looking stuff I bought just for the collection not to shoot.I ve traded and sold some of the extra at shows and my own yard sales.I too thought k98 when I ordered it.I never bother to try to chamber it tho since it wasnt for shooting for me.people go wow thats rare.if they only knew I only paid about a buck a box when it was plentyfull.so how much did they charge you? just curious what its going for at shows.

whats a fair price to pay for this stuff per box? I found some around town today and thought that it was kind of high. Thanks

I'll fess up. I paid $10, but I'm sure it was the only mistake I made at the show. 1951 Russian SKS for $250, Chinese SKS new in box for $200, Romanian SAR-1 for $300 plus good deals on 7.62 X 39 ammo. At least it was an inexpensive mistake.

Thats probably not bad right now.it hasnt been around for almost two years.at the same time it was available there was 70rnds of turk on strippers in bando at about $5.in recent months I've seen just the bandolier with empty stripers go for $25!!no ammo! I dont think its common.I've never seen it offered anywhere except with the online retailers.
