Put a magnet on the bullets and see if it sticks; not uncommon for European military ammo to have steel-jacketed bullets. A little rough on bores, so keep that in mind if you shoot it. Likely corrosive-primed, so wash the bore out with hot water after shooting, then oil as usual.
Sounds like garden-variety surplus 8mm Mauser ammo.
