As far as I know this rifle has never been fired. I've owned it since the mid 80's. It's been in a gun cabinet or safe since it came into my possession. 99 rounds of ammo included.

Rifle is located in Austin area. $1300 obo

I got one just like it. Great round that is about perfect for any game on N.A. and plains game for those that can handle it. The 8 Mag is a hard hitter on both ends. I have had excellent results on elk with the 8 Mag, the only reason I moved to a 338 was bullet selection at the time.

I have to ask, is this the old WW2 German round or a variation thereof?
No sir, the 8mm Remington Magnum is a much larger cartridge.
Here is a comparison picture of a 30-06 on the left and 8 Mag on the right

Nice caliber, this gun would be great for North America and Africa.

I bought just such a gun when I was last in the US... had it rebarrel to the 8x68S
I no one takes it, I will be interested in the ammo, maybe I need a 8mm Rem mag after all.

Remington came out with the 8mm mag in 1978 .
Yes the 8x68s is an earlier German round .....perhaps 10 percent less powerful than the 8mm rem mag ...Very popular in Europe ...and no belted case
