7.7x58mm Japanese

The one on the left has a headstamp, the one on the right has none. The one on the left is rimless, the one on the right is semi-rimmed. The one on the left has a slightly wider ogive than the one on the right. Is the one on the left Type 99 and the one on the right Type 92?

Thanks. Can you show a 7.7x58SR Type 89 example?

@sksvlad, check the first specimen on this page is the Type 89 with CN jacket and no headstamp

Ken Elks says the type 89 ball cartridge has a cupro-nickel clad steel jacket rather than a cupro-nickel jacket. He also, once, says it has a gilding metal jacket, but that is evidently a typo. Jack
