8x72Rmm Sauer / 8x72Rmm Jugdewehr / 8x72R/0.360-inch Reloading Data

Warning! Notes: This straight, rimmed case was developed by Sauer & Sohn for use in combination guns. The 8x72Rmm is sometimes listed as the 8x72Rmm S&S. Date of introduction is not established, but the old DWM case No. 574 would indicate sometime around 1910. It is obsolete. The 8x72Rmm was derived from the older 9.3x72Rmm. The principal difference between the two is caliber. Instead of having a conventional bottleneck, the 8x72Rmm case is full-length tapered to accommodate an 8mm bullet. Late RWS catalogs list this as a discontinued number. In power, it compares more-or-less with the 35 Remington. The 8x72Rmm would be useful mostly for woods hunting of deer-size animals. For handloading, bullets of 0.323-inch diameter should be used. (Cartridges of the World, 10th Edition)
