I have problems deciphering the headstamp. What does it say?

Thanks, you are probably right about me asking this. Municion.org identifies exactly the same headstamp as “Giulio Fiocchi Spa., de Lecco, Italia”. I can’t read the 1st letter in either headstamp, the 2nd is either “E” or “F.” and the 3rd is “L”.

It is clear from this thread that you are correct.

Fiocchi never listed this cartridge in their catalogs

The three letters are “G. E. L.” not “G. F. L.”
