The 8x68S round was developed by August Schueler as Germany's answer to magnum hunting cartridges for big game that could still fit and work in a standard sized Mauser 98 bolt action rifle. The German company RWS began mass production in 1939, but production was suspended because of wartime. After WW2, the round became popular again for hunting. The cartridge cases are very thick and durable, similar to other Schueler rounds like the 6.5x68, making casings relatively expensive compared to other calibres. The price is for ONE round only, and is fitted with an 8mm FMJ bullet head. Rounds can only be carried by courier. Extras available for this dummy round: An new and unindented brass cup to fit into the primer pocket to give the appearance of a new, unfired round: Large Dummy Primer Removal of the deactivated, inert primer from the round, leaving a hole or holes in the base that can be inspected to prove the round is inert and free from explosives: Depriming of Round
The casings are produced by a variety of manufacturers today. We cannot guarantee exact headstamps you will receive.
