Does anyone here reload for the Steyr 8x56R? I picked one up last week on gun broker pending getting it here. I already have almost 200 pieces of new brass. Trying to figure out what to start with. I’m going to slug the barrel before I do anything. Thanks
Bullets in 329 diameter, are avai!able. Not many options. Buffalo bullets is where I found them. Check headspace. Be careful. Had a few of these back when they could be had cheap, bores were hit and miss. After electrically cleaning a bore that looked just dirty serious deep long pitting was revealed.
The others were just dark. I really hate corrosive ammo.
Regardless they were cool rifles. I had to get away from shooting them though, the recoil was too much for my old shoulder. Honestly they kick like a Missouri mule. More so than an '06.
