Anyone remember these?

I bought a quanity of antique ammo recently. There were three mint boxes of Superspeed 8mm Mauser in the bunch. Each box has this warning leaflet included, pretty neat !

I believe I read somewhere that the reason for these
warnings came from individuals firing 8x57mm ammunition
in Winchester M1895 lever action rifles in 30-06 caliber
many years ago.

Re: Anyone remember these?

Last year I bought 4 boxes of various old minty 8mm Mauser ammo for $40..Boxes similar to this one but of different makes..I have a rather large collection of old boxes of all kinds of ammo..Anybody want to trade some? (Sorry not trying to make this a classified add!)
