The 8×60mm S is a rimless bottlenecked centerfire cartridge of German origin, dating back to the interbellum period between World War I and World War II. The bore has the same dimensions as the German 7.92×57mm Mauser service cartridge (designated as "S-bore"). The 8×60mm S can, due to its 83.6 mm (3.291 in) overall length, easily be chambered in standard sized Mauser 98 bolt action rifles. In such military M98 bolt actions internal magazine boxes feature a magazine length of 84 mm (3.307 in).
