Looking for a premium ammo for your 8mm Mauser for hunting or precision work? This is among the better choices available on the market. The quality of manufacture for rounds like this 8x57mm from Sellier and Bellot is essentially unmatched and represents a market segment that they have been dominant in for a very long time. Sellier & Bellot is a high quality manufacturer based in the Czech Republic and has been producing military and law enforcement ammunition since 1825. Their philosophy about keeping the highest standards alive for antiquated military rounds has led to some innovation in those different calibers and they have determined a sweet spot for some of the forgotten cartridges of the world.
This 8x57mm (the 8mm Mauser as it is known to most shooters) in a 196 grain soft point Cutting Edge round is no exception to this rule. The “Cutting Edge” bullet is actually more than a moniker and marketing pitch, as it works like a bonded core bullet in component retention, but also works like the newer polymer tipped engineered bullets that are all the rage because they produce consistent deformation.
The factory protocols and quality control makes this about as accurate and effective an 8mm Mauser round as you will find and it is safe to use in all 8x57 firearms.
