Problems can only be avoided by exercising good judgement.
Good judgement can only be gained by experiencing life's problems.

I hope you realize that the same weight bullet will have more presure in your 7.62 than it would have in the 8mm. It would be alot safer to use 7 x 57 data than 8 x 57. 8 x 57 may be to hot.
