      I got these in a recent purchase of a bunch of reloading gear and components.  318 seems an odd size.  One box is 150 grain and the other 175 grain.  Anybody know anything about these?  The were made by Modern Gun Shop in Hollydale Ca.

      probably for the old style 8mm mauser.

      the new style 8mm is .323

      at one time there was a .318 8mm

      Do not confuse with the .318 Westley Richards, also known as the .318 Rimless Nitro Express, which uses a .330 dia bullet.

      Thanks for the info fellas.  I think I’ll stick them on the shelf with my other oddities.
