SO mm MAUSER

This cartridge was developed by an American, Hugo Borchardt, for the first commercially successful semi-automatic pistol.

It has been used mainly in Mauser military automatic pistols and has been copied all over the world.

Until the arrival of the .357 Magnum revolver cartridge, the .30 Mauser was the highest velocity pistol cartridge available.

While never very popular in the United States, it is nevertheless adequate for hunting small game and varmints at ranges up to 100 yards.

There is no SAAMI pressure limit for the .30 Mauser. Fiocchi factory ammunition produced pressures of 27,000 C.U.P in our test barrel. The maximum loads shown below do not exceed that pressure. (This loading data may also be used for the 7.62mm Russian Tokarev. The Tokarev is essentially identical to the .30 Mauser cartridge which operates at a lower pressure.)
