    MARAT, unless I am mistaken according to Axel your 1908 rifles should be 8 x 56 M-S. I think you can make this out of 8 x 57 Mauser. Thanks, Diz

    Diz, thank you, for your advise.
    Today, I have a small victory - I take old case 8x57 Mauser( from the WW2) , shortened it on 1 mm, take bullet of same time and cartridge, and reload one cartridge for my M-S.
    Yes, it is 8x56 M-S.
    Modern cases are bigger in bottom...

    MARAT,

    Glad to hear you are making progress. You are correct that the 8x57 Mauser is slightly bigger in the base and rim it is also slightly longer to the shoulder as well compared to the M-S. However this can be a good thing if you happen to have a chamber that is a little loose and because the 8x57 should only be about .003" in the rim and .004" larger at the base and these can be easily reduced if necessary. If your rifle chambered the cartridge you made than you should be OK.

    Good luck and let us know, Thanks Diz
