8x50R Lebel

The world’s first smokeless, small-bore adopted. Developed by France in the mid 1980’s. It was the French’s main source of amunition at one point. The French won the first world war with this baby, they relied on it till the late 1980’s. This muzzle energy punch was the first to have a boat-tail bullet. A total revolutionary ammo.
