Ballistics of the 8mm Mannlicher
Ballistics of the 8mm Mannlicher-What are the ballistics of the 8mm Mannlicher? What kind of penetration, and is it a good killer?
The following ballistics are given by H. Tauscher: Point blank range, 200 yards; muzzle velocity, 2080 feet per second; muzzle energy, 2218 foot pounds. These figures are for full length sporting rifle barrels; the short barreled carbine would give somewhat less velocity and energy, and a higher trajectory. While these numbers are only representative, you might say that the rifle has about the same range and power as the .30-40 or the .303 British. It is a great killer and is the most popular of all the foreign rifles among big game hunters of all countries.
