    Jim it’s a 700 KS long action, it still has the hang tags on it.

I’m with you, I recently purchased a Remington 8 mm mag and enough brass to last through 3 rifles , it’s unique and I love it! Good luck and have fun.
    Is that a Rem 700? Is it the standard LA or is that a longer action for the 8mm ? You are the second I know with a 8mm.. I worked with a guy heading out for Elk and he thought it might be a good round for that.

    Rem 8 Mag!? Good grief Charlie Brown!
    Wha'cha doin'? Clearing land and gathering acorns?

    The 8 Mag came out on the late 70's and was to compete with the .300 Win Mag and .338 Win Mag.
    Rem did well, but it was a bit(?) more rifle than the average "white tail" hunter wanted or needed.
    It just never did catch on.

    I agree, agree you like it, that's all that matters! 😉!
    I shoot an AR in 6.8mm Rem SPC for the same reason. I like it and it works for me.

    I really don’t care. All that matters is that the two I have give me pleasure. As does every firearm I own. Otherwise why would I have bought them in the first place ? Besides, being my first oddball cartridge, the 325wsm prompted me to take up reloading. I bought enough ammo and brass for three lifetimes. It’s my way.
    lol

    Decreasing would be my guess

    It is a great cartridge and I'd hang onto it if I were you. It is new and hasn't grabbed the world by storm but if you have one, enjoy it. I suspect interest will decline and you will have a tough time buying ammo off the shelf but you should be reloading for that cartridge anyway. Get a hundred brass quickly and start loading. If you have the last one in the world, you will still have a great rifle.

    It is not gaining noticeable momentum among my shooting associates

    If I was going to step up from my 300WSM for a big bear rifle or to use as an elk rifle it would probably be a .338 Win Mag. I have .338 dies and some brass left to me by a friend.

    I think it is a great caliber but I believe it is decreasing in popularity.

    Well, I just got a rifle in that caliber, so I reckon I bought a pig in a poke. Have been having the devil of a time finding brass to reload.
    I ain't trading it though. Just because.

    I guess 8mm has never been popular in this country.

    Will continue to decrease in favor of old reliable and more readily available (and cheaper)cartridges. Not that it's not a good round.
