I have owned an 8mm rem mag since I was in high school. it's a rem. 700 with a 24" barrel. Have never shot it much. Killed one elk, a deer and a couple coyoes with it. The only comercialy avalible round is a 200 grn a frame with rather poor ballistics (& $90.00 a box). I don't know a whole lot about the round. I know the 7mm STW was made from a necked down 8mm rm. If loaded properly I should be able to make a pretty long range gun out of it should'nt I? Any ideas on bullet type and weights would be appreciated. Anyone else have one? I did'nt realize how few were actualy out there.
