    Hello gun nuts. Quick question. I have a 1940 K98 in very good condition and a Lee Enfield 1918 Mark III in very good condition. What are the most proper modern day loads for 8mm and .303 rounds. Thanks for the help!

    If you are hand loading your shells, here is a good web page for these 2 and other various rifle rounds.

    Not hand loading. Store buying the rounds. Kinda need them last minute.

    Ah! Okey then...well, it depends on what you're shooting with them, I suppose. Basically, in the US, for the 8MM just look for anything in a 200 grain or close, probably something like a jacketed soft tip like a Norma 196 grain should do for about most anything you'll be shooting at. As for the 303 Lee Enfield, you'll probably do best with something on the order of a Remington Core-lokt 180 grain.

    LOL don't have to be a key member to have the correct answer. Thanks William. That's what I was looking for. also just realized I put this thread in the wrong sub forum, so I expect it to be moved at any time. Thanks again!

    Remington and Federal make 8MM for the mauser. Non Corrosive but expensive as hell. Sure you want to shoot that mauser? If all matching and in good shape is worth $1200 to 1500 out my way. Just my 2 cents.
