Default 8mm price check

Can anyone tell me a ballpark on this ammo? I know from shooting it that its corrosive, bought a couple bandoleers with a captured k98 several years back. Thanks in advance.

Turk surplus. About 50-70 cents a round is what I am finding it for locally. Seen it as high as a buck a round on-line.

I typically see the turkish stuff going for less, like maybe 40 cents/rd since you really shouldn't use it in semiautos. Regular romanian or yugo is about 50 cents/rd. The yugo M75 sniper ammo is usually the most pricey at about 60 cents/rd.

Yep... should have clarified-- thats what I see people asking for it. Probably not what they are getting for it. What about the old 30's and 40's dated Greek surplus 8mm? I have about 4k rounds of that tucked away.

35-45 cents; no more. You can regularly find 50s Yugo for 50-55 cents and the 70s-90s Yugo for a little more.

Around here (Southern Colorado) you can't give 8 m/m ammo away. Offered a sealed tin, best offer was .02 per round. I have a 98k, so I'll shot it my self.

Begs a question: Greek service round was still the 6.5x54 to '42 or so when they went to .303. Why would they stockpile 8x57?

They made it for the Germans. They also had FN Mausers chambered for 7.92 serving along side the older Mannlicher Schoenauers in 6.5.

A Greek colleague, who read through the Pyrkal history in the native language, indicated that the French language marked 8mm from the late 30's was made for the Republican side in the Spanish Civil War. French being the export language of Greece back then.
