7,9x57 box 1943 eej

This box also has mixed lots of 3 different cartridge manufacturers, but I don’t see this in the label. What is “Kern B”?

Kern B means a sharp tip on the core. Kern A had a flattened tip (I’m sure dutch will have a lot more detailled info on the types (and correct me if i’m wrong))
