GECO centerfire rifle cartridges in caliber 8x57 IS

8 x 57 IS

In 1905, the 8 x 57 IS was developed from the old military cartridge 8 x 57 I – the “S” stands for spitzer bullet. This universally usable calibre can be optimally used for all game occurring in Europe, because as a rule there is less haematoma formation with it.

With the 185 gr Softpoint bullet and the Target as well as with the 196 gr GECO Plus bullet GECO is offering a broad range of this popular calibre. For all fans of lead-free ammunition, there is a new load of GECO ZERO with a bullet weight of 139 gr.
