I bought the M41B Brazilian Bulldog this morning in one of the packages on sale. It says the minimum damage is 240 and maximum damage is 400. 

 

But going against other Tier 8's - the same level - I am only doing 50-80 damage consistently. What gives?

That damage rating is only if you penetrate.

HEP ammo is high explosive plastic or something like that. No much pen but good against most other lights if you get rushed early. Switch to HEAT for the majority of the match.

Standart ammo is HEP (with better pen than normal HE, ~102mm iirc) so if you only deal little damage it's not a penetration just spash. 

If you want to pen fore the Heat (250pen) or if you want to pen with the HE go for the side/rear of a tank but be aware of spaced armor.

Unfortunately you don’t get any standard “AP” ammo on the Brazilian Bulldog, only HEP/HEAT/HE.  The HEP is good, but only in the right conditions (against weak armour), and using HEAT consistently is going hurt your silver earnings.  In hindsight, I would have bought the Hollenhund or German M41, ahead of the Brazilian Bulldog purely to get more workable ammo options.

That won’t happen now as it would then be the same as the German Bulldogs. Even though it really could use it instead of the useless HE.

Giving it an AP round would make it flat out better than the Hellhound. The AP round is the only thing the German has over the Brazil.

It's unfortunate that the Axis powers get two better premium tanks when it's an Allied design and the Allied premium light tank gets the worse tank.  WG logic.  I believe the Brazilian Bulldog had a heftier price when it came out.  Packaged with a lot of things to bump up the price.  It is what it is.

Axis and Allies? What you been smoking? West Germany was not Nazi Germany.

The tank came out in 1951. We sold it to West Germany in 1955 when they joined NATO.

 

And the Brazilian Bulldog is still the better Bulldog regardless of the ammo.

I'm not a tank historian.  Not that important to me in the greater scheme of things.  When I was in the service, I don't think I saw any of those tanks, so I wouldn't know.  Been inside an M60 when I was a kid when my dad was a Marine.  Ridden in the M113 but that's an APC.  I just play to shoot tanks.

I worked on M60’s as we were passing them over to Guard units and also worked on a ton of 113’s. Was neat going through the old dinosaur.
