The 8×68mm S rebated rim bottlenecked centrefire rifle cartridge was developed in the 1930s by August Schüler of the August Schüler Waffenfabrik, Suhl, Germany as a magnum hunting cartridge that would just fit and function in standard-sized Mauser 98 bolt-action rifles. The 8 x 68 S was introduced to fit the very popular Mauser bolt-action rifles in the beginning of the 20th century with a cartridge adapted specifically for hunting. The 8 x 68 S is remarkably versatile, loaded lightly with the proper bullet type and weight it can be used on small game, while heavy loads and modern bullet constructions have been used successfully to hunt elephants. Official requirements on calibre size have made the 8 x 68 S unsuitable for Big Five hunting, however.
