I have this nice sealed H&K box and I like to know what headstamp the cartridge have.

I have an English box put next to it for comparison

Harry, these are Austrian cartridges headstamped HP .223 5,56 that were made in the early 90’s for Heckler & Koch S.A. in Neuchâtel, Switzerland. Because of the label style, I assume that these were made for promotional sales and not for a specific contract. They also exists in ball (SC) and blank loadings. Regards, Fede.
