|8mm Gasser or 8mm Rast-Gasser
|Current/ Obsolete ? Pistol Cartridge Section
The 8mm Rast-Gasser is a military revolver cartridge introduced in 1898 in Germany for the Rast-Gasser
military revolver patented in 1873 and other revolvers at a later date.
No revolver were chambered in this caliber in the USA, however it was popular in Europe.
The only make of this cartridge if Fiocchi in Italy how, to my limited knowledge only imports it into the U.S.A
once every few years.
Simliar to the 8mm Lebel, the 8mm Rast-Gasser the case rim and body are almost idetical to the .32 S&W long,
however I would not shoot a .32 S&W Long cartridge in a revolver for 8mm Gasser due to pressure issues.
