The 8x56 is a rimless cartridge with a design closer to the mauser design. The Steyr 8x56R cartridge uses a Mannlicher designed inline magazine with a clip that falls free after the last one is in battery. Now later the Mannlicher Schoenauer rifles had Steyr-Daimler-Puch on the left wall of the receiver and Mannlicher-Schoenauer on the front ring so I can see how some may become confused with a veritable who's who on one rifle. But the cartridges if compared side by side are extremely different in design and function and not interchangeable.

supersuspenders?! hello! Just like my kids, ask me a question and leave before I get my answer out. Maybe I should start talking faster.

I use 49 grains of H4895 with good success. Got sooty cases with any less powder.

I have a 8X56R which I love to shoot, I put a limb saver on it for recoil. I am going to start reloading, i have a 200 grain jacketed soft point, It looks like the best powder is iether the 3031 or 4350. I have 2 cans of H4831SC has anyone used this on jacked bullets for this rifle. it shows a load for cast but not jacketed. Thank you for any Info

Cheers, Vince

Well the 54 grs. of IMR 4350 have done good so far. I still have to fix my front sight to get the point of aim right for 50 yds. but our beautiful weather just turned to rain for the next few days. I have some rounds loaded up so I'm ready to go when the time comes. I was ready for using it for deer hunting last fall but I ended up taking one with my trusty old Remington model 8 35 cal.
