8 mm (.323) 175 gr. SPT
All modern 8mm rifles, including all German military arms manufactured since 1905, use .323 inch diameter bullets. However, German military rifles manufactured between 1888 and 1905 used a .318 inch diameter bullet. Many of those rifles were rebarreled to .323 inch bores after 1905, but some rifles of the smaller bore size were brought back from WWI and WWII and still exist. Some German sporting guns, particularly combination guns made until 1938, used 8mm cartridges with .318 inch diameter bullets. Sometimes, a .323 inch diameter bullet can be loaded and fired in a cartridge intended for a .318 inch groove diameter, but dangerously high chamber pressures result. If you do not know that your bore size is .323 inch, slug your barrel before loading .323 inch diameter bullets. There are two Pro-Hunter bullets in .323 inch caliber in Sierra's line and both are the Spitzer type.
These 8mm hunting bullets provide exceptional accuracy together with deep penetration and reliable expansion on medium and heavier game. The 175 grain #2410 gives the 8x57mm shooter an excellent big game bullet and is suitable for 8mm magnum cartridges.

|Phenomenal accuracy out of German combination guns, and the only bullet that re-sizes easily to .318 diameter for older guns. Please make more Sierra!|

|It performs very well in all situations - from hunting bears, big wild boars, wild sheep, and goats. From 25 to 500 yards, it penetrate about 22 inches in animal and expand to 3 times with 60% mass retained!|

|Loaded these with 80 grains of IMR 4831 and had three three shot groups average .425" at a 100 yards from a bipod. Gun is a 1982 Remington Model 700 BDL with a magna port muzzle break. Cant ask for better accuracy. Bullets went 16" into the burm behind the target. With the accuracy and penetration of these bullets i dont see the need to go bigger for anything that isnt going to try and eat me.|
