    first off I like this board. I now have places to ask questions that I couldnt before.

    My uncle bought a Mauser rifle,a nd he was toild it was 8mm. But the bullets that came with it (some on strips) have a foriegn writing on them and all you can make out is a "7.9" on it .

    Ofcourse he went out and got 8mm bullets since that is what he was told it was . Will they shoot in it ? If i remember correctly one looks to be a LITTLE longer than the other .

    I don't know if it helps or not, but his son has a 6.5x55 Mauser that is identical to the one he got, just different calibers.
