8X50R Lebel Ammo For Sale- Top Ammo Retailers Available
The 8×50mmR Lebel rifle cartridge was the first smokeless powder cartridge to be made and adopted by any country.
It was introduced by France in 1886. Formed by necking down the 11×59mmR Gras black powder cartridge, the smokeless 8mm Lebel cartridge started a revolution in military rifle ammunition.
The 8mm Lebel is the name of two French rounds, one for rifles and the other for revolvers. The series is, of course, not interchangeable and often differentiated with rifle or gun after the rounds name.
