Is there any source for 8mm AMMO for Danish Krag rifles?

Doesn't seem to be. I recently had the opportunity to purchase a Danish Krag rifle and spent some time researching this very subject. Here is what I found:

Loaded ammo is not available anywhere. Norma used to load this cartridge, but does not seem to any longer, even in Europe.

Dies are a special order item. RCBS offers a set that is special order. That will be $145 and a three month wait.

Brass does seem to be available actually. Graf and Sons offers a 20 round box of Bertram (Australian, I think). Price is $58.

There IS ammo being made, but you have to pay for it.

Hi All, I spotted this so thought I may as well join :lol:

There is still some 8x58RD around in Denmark, I have found boxed 1960's dated @ DKK500/50 from memory it was Norma, plus some milsurp dated 1915-1925 which is handy for the brass plus a third location that when I mentioned the 8mm Krag he grinned opened his desk draw and passed me a handful so it does exist, all of it was built for the M1889. I plan on picking up some next time we are in DK if only for the brass.

That does not really help you guys that need factory loads...

Is there a good place to introduce myself?

.Es ist leider auf Deutsch,aber ich hoffe ein Wiederlader kommt damit zurecht.
It is unfortunately in German, but I hope a re-loader can handle it.
