Sarco has had these 8mm Swede BMG barrels for many years, and for cheap. They are useful for making barrels for any .323 +/-bore MGs.

It goes to the Swedish Kulspruta version of the 1917. In 8X63. Good steel. Some guys turn them down to 1917 BMG config and handload 8mm into resized .30-06 casings for a Wildcat 06 round.

I bought one accidently b/c I assumed like that famous author Alexander Dumass:eek: that it was a 8x57 mauser, DUUUH. Figured, "cool turn the barrel and I'll have an 8mm barrel to use", NOT.

A well-known person on the board is considering doing something with these when he blows through his hoard of Wildcat 06 rounds he has made. Hopefully we might be able to use these afterall.
