What is the longest cartridge that I can use in a vz.24 mauser? They mag box measures 3.4 inches. So I think a 30/06 is to long. Thanks

I have rechambered an 8MM Mauser to 30-06 it is a rechambering that was very popular before the 8MM round became accessible to the US. It is called the 8MM-06 I recently bought hornady dies for this round on e-bay. The balistics on this cartridge make this suitable for animals as large as elk. Most older reload manuals have info for this cartridge. I hope this is what you were asking.
