7.92 Mauser French Ball


I have a 7.92x57 Mauser with French headstamp
VE S 4 52. Magnetic CN bullet with magenta case mouth and primer annulus. Primer is 3-staked flat brass, brass case. Is this a trace? If so, what is the French designation for this load?


These are not tracers they are ordinary ball. the box labels say simply “15 Cartouches de 7.92.” I don’t know of any other official designation, although there might be one. You would think they would use it on the box label, though, if there is.


Here is the box and the clip.




John–Thanks for the ID.

JFL-I appreciate the box photo.
