Excellent article.  I’d like to buy a few if we could get them here legally.

The .318″ groove dimension was for the original 8×57 in the model 88 Comission rifle.  When they switched to the Mauser, they went to the .323″ barrel instead.  I’m not sure of the time frame.  I have read where they used to make sporting ammunition for the .318″ and the .323″ also.

Here’s a link to more accurate detail than I can remember.
