French 7.5 ammo dosent work in my mas

My freind brought me some 7.5 french ammo at arcadia this weekend i have not seen it yet but he says it wont fit in my mas. This leads me to believe it goes to some other french rifle maybe a lebel?

Did he by chance pick up 7.5 Swiss? Only French 7.5 I know of should work in a MAS36. The Lebel I am almost positive was in 8mm but I am not an expert in French firearms. My Grandfather had a guy in his unit put the wrong ammo in a French pistol, blew up and killed him. Moral of the story, make damn sure you've got the right ammo long before you head to the range.

How does he know it won't fit? Why did he buy it in the first place?

These two rounds are not interchangeable:

7.5x54mm French

8mm Lebel

Maybe like Gunner said, he might have bought some 7.5x55 Swiss ammo, which is for Swiss K31's and other Swiss rifles. I've never heard of MAS36's being chambered in other cartridges besides 7.5x54.

Thanks he went to arcadia and saw some ammo marked french 7.5 he knew vaguley thats what my mas took so when he got to his house he tried it in my rifle which I keep their and it didnt fit. Ive been looking on the internet and yes i have only seen 8mm lebels so it must be swiss ammo

There were a few converted to 7.62X51 (.308).

Maybe it was surrendering and didn't want to be fired.
