I'm sure they never made one. It is more popular in Europe, I think, just because of it's military histroy there. Your 8X57 milsurp will probably shoot with anything in the 8X57 class if it has a good bore. I had two of the Yugo 24/47's but got rid of them without firing a shot (someone did an unauthorixed inventory! ) Will probably be shooting a Hakim in 8X57 over the weekend that another family member is picking up.Do you know if H&R ever made a 8x57? Seems like alot of info on the net about that caliber. Must of been pretty popular at one time.
