The 8mm-06 wildcat cartridge came about as a matter ofconvenience. Following WWII, returning GIs brought back many 8mm Mauser rifles as war souvenirs, both military and commercial manufacture. The scarcity of 8mm Mauser ammo or brass prompted many owners to have their rifles rechambered to use the .3006 cases with 8mm bullets.

The 8mm-06 is an excellent wildcat cartridge suitable for all North American big game. It is as flexible in its choice of propellants as is the .30-06 and provides excellent ballistics.

There is no SAAMI pressure limit for the 8mm-06. Based on the .30-06 cartridge case, the Accurate technical staff selected 60,000 P.S.I. as the maximum pressure for this cartridge. These loads do not exceed that pressure.
