I found two boxes of 1986 russian made 8mm nambu
the cartridges are made of resized and trimmed .38 special cartridges.
and this is how things look like

just compare the fired casings to the full cartridge...
as for the guns... yep they survided without a scratch and to be honnest... they worked well, chambered correctly, ejected like they should and are damn accurate!

You might try running an expander rod (with good lube) of appropriate diameter down into the 38 case to expand to size first, then neck /size down in std. sizing die.

Would eliminate case splits

You might want to check out the 9 x 21 and the 9 x 23 winchester cases as they are only about .15 smaller than the 8 Nambu.
