7,92 × 57 mm Mauser headstamp year ID help


found used german ammunition near their foxhole but Im trying to figure out if it is ammunition used by army or hunting rifle. It has been damaged so there is no year. Thank you!


As per the headstamp it is military ammunition.

Thank you! :slight_smile:

The case is made of brass by Dynamit A.G. (RWS if you want) in the Nürnbergfactory. Second lot of…well yes, second lot of 1941, '42, '43 and '44 was always brass.

@EOD is right, it was a SmK Leuchtspur (core tracer)
I looked and all lots #2 were tracers. Unfortunately, I cannot show the 1943.
Missing in the collection.

Not always :innocent:
