Plenty of reload data for the 8mm Rem mag on the Hodgdon site. Don`t think you`ll find any recos for loadings from anyone here. As far as I know, nobody has one here on this forum....Maybe add a little moose and big bear to the black bear and whitetail???

found two good loads for my two rifles. 78GR 0F imr 4831 using 185gr Rem psp with federal 215 m primers and 82.8 grs of imr 7828 using sierra 220gr bullets and Rem 9 1/2 m primers.Found out that the one rifle doesn't like the 220 grain bullets but the other one it didn't matter which ones I shot it grouped pretty good.I had a 1 1/4 three shot group two inches high at 100 yds from both rifles.

Your lucky if you found anything near what you wanted. My Uncle is giving me my Grand Pa's old 8mm he customize back in his day. I've had to order what I could find for loading. I was really suprized that 8mm components would be so slim.
