    Hi mauser9,

    In France the law say; you cannot shot with a weapon that used military ammo, you must rechambered the weapon in a civil caliber. The cal. 8X60 is an old military caliber used in the reichswehr after WW1 & declassed in France as an hunting caliber (civil cal). The 3 mm différence between the original cal. 8X57 is not a problem, you have enought place in the 5 rounds magazine.
    Another exemple, for an US M1 Garand or US M1 Carbin, you must rechambered the weapon in a shorter cal. 30/06 short or .30 short, the case is 1 mm shorter than the original ammo, so you cannot firing the original ammo, the bolt doesnt close.
    Hope the answer to your question is clear.
    Best regards from Alsace , France.

    Hi mauser9,

    To own a rifle, only a rifle, you must are 18 years old & member of a shooting club. All full auto weapons are forbiten, for a pistol or a revolver you must have a spécial autorisation délivered by the local country représentant of the gouvernment.
    Only the members of a hunting reserve are autorised to hunt & they cannot hunt what they want, the local hunting autority fixe the sort of animal & the number that you can hunt in a year.
    Sorry for my bad english.
    Best regards from Alsace , France.

    Always nice to hear of regulations concerning firearms and hunting in other countries. Your English is fine. I cannot speak French or German at all. Best wishes for now
