20mm Hispano case ID - "99289001"

I have a brass Berdan primer 20 x 110 Hispano case. It is stamped simply “99289001” At 12 O’ Clock. How old is this and where was it made?

It is made by Lapua for Sweden.

Thanks

I didnt know that code 992 was Lapua. Does any reference for this information exist?

99289001 can be divided into three parts:
992, manufacturers code(Lapua?)
89, made 1989
001 first lot 1989

Welcome SwedishCollector, this code has shown up in Finland on 20x145R which were made by Lapua for Sweden.

Thank you.

Do you know the year of manufacture of the 20x145R?

Thanks SwedishCollector for your information on those markings. I had forgotten all about this case, that is another headstamp completely solved.

  • Well, I have a fired 20mm Hispano [20X110] rimless brass shell case with NO headstamp markings. I don’t see how can I find out any info about the maker and the country of origin. Liviu 12/19/07
