Who made them, what type are they. I updated the topic.

Thanks Doc on the brass case. I presume it’s just plain ball?

Are you sure the right one is a 7,92x57 Mauser?

Thanks. NO I’m not sure it was a 8mm. Looking at the picture, rim diameter is smaller. Thanks for the 7.7 ID.

DocAV is right,It’s a brass jacket Ball made by factory 671 in Northeast China.——that symbol was composed by two Chinese character“東” and “北”,which means East and North
