.223/ 5,56mm Comparision between FN SS101 (not 109) and FFV 890

Both of this cartridges where for swedish Trials with new rifle design (finally an FN FNC won this), the swedish one was for the FFV890C Rifle (a modified Galil)

I Show he box of the swedish trials (no headstamp/but case face looks definitly FN, not swedish manufacture, besides an FN73 SS101), box has no maker on it…

Bullets looks close like each other, but the FN headstamped one has more rounded nose…
the base of the FFV890:
FFV890%20no%20hs

Here the SS101 from side:

and headstamp SS101:
ss101%20hs%20fn

There is the FFV890 mentiioned on
