Don't have any goodies relating to 8x57/7.92x57 I can sell you, but in terms of load data, work up to 46gr of IMR4064 with a 198gr FMJ or 200gr Nosler/SMK. It's above the book max(which is well nerfed), it's quite stout on the recoil, but it's the best I've seen my Mauser shoot.

I've a few stripper clips for a mauser but they've picked up a little surface rust. I'll stick them in an envelope if you want. No charge. and If I can ever get the thing off again, a sling aswell. I'm about to get rid of my mauser so need.
