.30 eu

I recently ran across a listing on Armslist for a "Commercial Mauser with (normal stuff) marked caliber.30 EU". Not that I'm in the market for another rifle, but what the heck is caliber.30 EU? I can't seem to find anything on it.

According to a buddy of mine over in Germany, it is what we would refer to as an 8mm-06. No clue if he is correct in your case, some things get lost in translation.

Only thing I could think of would be 'Estatos Unidas', or United States: the 30-06 was referred to in the early days as the .30 US. Maybe a rifle produced for the Spanish-speaking market? If it were an 8mm-'06, one would expect a marking of 8x63, not something with a decimal designation.

It's either the '06 or some new designation for a cartridge used by the European Union. The latter is highly unlikely.

It's 30-06

Skimmed a few threads on some russian board and picking out every 20th word or so got me nowhere except for seeing .30US and .30EU side by side a couple times too. These listing are a lot easier to read.

I would bet based on the French, Etats Unis- which would make double sense if Belgian produced. Estados Unidos, representing a plural, would be abbreviated EEUU.

Incidentally, I have a Husqvarna made for "domestic" (Swedish) sale in the 1950s. It is marked ".30-06 US"

Cool! I saw the post and pictures and thought it was a great rifle, but the caliber confused me. Thought it might make a neat discussion too!
