8x57 PPU 198gr

Quite accurate but very low velocity. On the average around 2000fps +/- 40fps. Only Seller & Bellot has velocity as advertised. Around 2700fps+/- 40fps. The PPU is good plinking ammo which is also re-loadable. The velocity is so low that the recoil is about the same as a 243Win with 80gr bullet. I would chose the soft point version of this bullet for short range hunting, 150yard or less for medium to large game. A fantastic Pig, Deer, Elk, Moose round. But once again Seller & Bellot is better but more recoil. If you want your wife or kid to be able to shoot your old military M-98 than this is the round for them. For Myself, The Sellier & Bellot is the ONLY good 8mm Mauser ammo out there. I use this ammo just for plinking when I am to lazy to reload some. I would also use this ammo for any Small Ring Mauser in this caliber. If you have a Modern or Large ring Mauser, stick with the Sellier & Bellot.
