Sellier & Bellot Rifle Ammunition

8 X 57 JS (8mm Mauser), Soft Point Cut-through Edge (SPCE),0.323-inch bullet diameter, Rimless Cartridge, 196 GR, 2592 fps, 20 Rd/bx

Sellier & Bellot Ammunition has a semi-jacketed bullet with a SOFT POINT CUT-THROUGH EDGE (SPCE) in the jacket which partially locks the lead core at the same time. The bullet effect depends on the target resistance. It gets deformed in light game to a lesser extent than in heavy game. It is appropriate for clawed game hunting.

Germany adopted what is now commonly known as the 8mm Mauser in 1888. Soon the military of a number of other countries, including Czechoslovakia, Poland and China were using it, too. In 1905, Germany increased working pressure of this cartridge and switched from a 226-grain, 0.318-inch, round-nose bullet (2095-fps) to a 154-grain, 0.323-inch, spitzer bullet (2880-fps phenomenal velocity for that era). The reason behind the increase in bullet diameter was that the grooves of all existing military 8x57 J barrels were deepened, to extend useful barrel life; all new barrels were specified with the deeper grooves; bore diameter was unaltered. The 8x57 JS is a flexible and powerful cartridge and duplicates 30-06 performance. Few bolt-action rifles have recently been chambered for the 8x57 JS, which is too bad. This is a fine old chambering that, in competent hands, is suitable for hunting most species, worldwide.

The United States standardizing body for sporting cartridges Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers' Institute (SAAMI) designates the 8x57mm JS cartridge as the 8mm Mauser.
