Hmmpf. So much for 8 x 64S

Well, here goes that idea. Lutz Moeller just declared that he is discontinuing the  KJG 8003 which puts paid to havign a 9g bullet in 8mm from him. This drives the necessary calibre up to .338" or 8.5 mm. There is a new German cartridge there, the 8.5 x 63 Reb by Werner Reb. About the same amount of energy as the 8x64 S, so no big deal really. And actually a modern development.

More on the subject to follow.
