Immediately following WW II, many shooters found themselves in possession of 8mm Mauser military rifles for which they could not obtain suitable ammunition. What was more natural then but to rechamber these rifles for the 30-06 case, with the neck expanded to take .323 bullets? Presto! The 8mm-06 was born. It is impossible to state positively who first accomplished this as it probably happened at several places at about the same time.
The 8mm-06 in standard or Improved form is one of the better wildcat developments. It is similar to the German 8 x 64mm Brenneke in both dimensions and performance. Using European nomenclature, this would be the 8 x 63mm caliber. With the 125 grain bullet, it makes a very good varmint cartridge, while with 200 to 250 grain bullets it would be adequate for any North American big game. For those who don't care for the performance of the standard 8mm cartridge, the 8mm-06 provides an inexpensive means of altering Mauser military rifles to a more powerful cartridge. However, the conversion eliminates the use of cheap, surplus military ammunition and has to be 100 percent handloaded. These two factors should be considered in light of how they affect the overall use of the rifle.
