Local gun shop has Olympic 8mm for $8 a box of 20. I know it is Berdan primed, 180 gr, and can't be reloaded and it is 2900+ fps.

Is it worth getting?

Groups like a 12 gauge. Spend your $8 on something else.

As far as the Olympic 8mm goes it does very poor grouping. The "Wolf Gold" is slightly better but not enough to buy it. Your still better off getting the 8mm Yugo 1979 the Yugo 1954 or my favorite the Greek 8mm made in 1939. I've done several side by side test on these ammo. At the moment if very difficult to find sulplus 8mm.

1939 Greek

Ditto on the 1939 Greek. Bought a couple of cases back in the day and I am sure glad I did.
