Is it OK to shoot 8mm Turkish ammo in my CZ BRNO 98/22? I know the Turk is very hot.
Thanks!

Given correct headspace, it's perfectly fine - many Turkish Army Mausers were actually Czech-made 98/22 rifles with sight markings in Arabic. I own such a rifle, I shoot it with Turk ammo, and find it to be significantly more comfortable to shoot that a shorter 98K-length rifle such as my friend's Yugo M48.

The Czech 98/22 is one of the best-built '98 Mausers out there, made with top-quality Czech steel and craftsmanship; the 29" barrel gives you a nice, long sight radius, recoil-dampening weight, a better balance than the 24" short-rifles, and optimum ballistics with that hot Turk ammo. Blast away, and enjoy!

If its anything like my 98/22, it will shoot turk ammo very well, albeit about 1' high at 100 yards.

I have never experienced any pressure problems shooting it. chris3

Neither have I - in my 98/22 Mauser. I have seen a few cracked necks, though. While not actually overpressure, Turk 8mm milsurp ammo is noticeably hotter than most other countries' 8mm milsurp ammo by virtue of having been loaded with a slower-burning powder intended to produce optimal velocities from the Turkish standard-issue 29"-barreled rifle. Consequently, I refuse to shoot it in my Egyptian 8mm FN49 semi-auto rifle; for that gun, I bought a case of Yugoslav 8mm instead.
