Controllable power for big game hunting with the 8×57 IS / 11.7 g (180 gr) Naturalis lead-free hunting cartridge
Truly one of the world’s great cartridges since its birth in the early 20th century, the 8×57 IS was perhaps the first incarnation of modern sporting and hunting ammunition. Today, the 8×57 IS (also known as the 7.92×57mm Mauser or the 8×57mm or the 8mm Mauser) has practically disappeared from military use, but the cartridge retains tremendously popular among Central-European hunters and European hunting rifle manufacturers for the civilian market. The powerful 8×57 IS round also offers controllable stopping power and accuracy for Scandinavian type of big game hunting.
