The most common gun in the US that shoots this round is the Steyr-Mannlicher M95. They are military surplus rifles. The design originated in 1895, and the rifles that shoot the 8x56R cartrige were chambered for this round in the 1930's. The barrels were also shortened to carbine length when the guns were rechambered.
