- Q & A
Between 1930 and 1945 the 80x56mm RS round was used by militaries in Austria and Hungary. It was designed as a replacement for the 8x50mmR Mannlincher and first used in the Steyr-Solothurn light machine gun. It has a fascinating historical background and was originally manufactured by companies in Austria, Germany, Bulgaria, and Czechoslovakia. Today it’s primarily produced by Hornady here in the United States and Prvi Partizan, which is located in Serbia. And while it’s a historically significant cartridge, it isn’t used by any military forces any longer but is mostly used to gun aficionados interested in rifles with rich pasts such as are involved with the 8x56mm RS.
These particular 8x56mm RS rounds are manufactured by Prvi Partizan, a company whose own roots can be traced back to 1928. Each round weighs in at 208 grain, making them somewhat lightweight for the cartridge size. Being lighter than their heavier counterparts enables these rounds to travel down-range at higher speeds, and at 208 grain these rounds are definitely solid enough to create a solid impact. These are Soft Point, SP, rounds and begin to expand immediately upon impact. SPs expand more slowly than HPs, allowing for a larger, more devastating wound cavity. This ammunition is good for hunting game the size of whitetail deer and can also be used for target practice.
When you order this box of ammunition from Prvi Partizan you get 25 boxes containing 20 rounds each for a total of 500 Soft Point rounds. With 500 rounds you can spend time practicing, zero your optics, and have enough left over to hunt. Of course, you could also use it all to improve your marksmanship, working on placement, accuracy, and grouping. These rounds move fast, with a muzzle velocity of 2296 feet per second and muzzle energy of 2437 foot-pounds. In addition to other benefits, SPs can be used in areas where HPs are banned. Prvi Partizan manufactures ammunition at their factory in Uzice, Serbia, according to CIP and SAAMI specifications. Order now and keep your 9x18mm RS Mannlincher-chambered rifle well-fed.
