    I have a BRNO (roughly a forerunner of CZ arms) commercial '98 Mauser action in 8x62mm caliber. Mine has a dog ear bolt handle and stalking stock and is a work of art. The cartridge should easily take most North American game; probably low margin of error for excited large, dangerous game. I use the PPU cases and bullets without problem, although .30-06 Springfield cases are not hard to alter. Powders and primers suitable are the typical ones available in the U. S.

    If this round sounds similar to 8x57mm Mauser, look it up on line. Great story. Spoiler alert! It is a rule beater.
