8 x 50R mannlicher faked blank?


#1

According to you could this be a faked blank?
I have never seen 8 x 50R mannlicher blanks with this kind of bullet

Bullet diameter is .313" / 7,95 mm just outside the case neck


#2

I have 3 blanks
1=pointed, belted at mouth, .326" natural wood with a red painted tip hs-VII / 19 /waffenampt / 38 brass case
2= light green rolled .323" paper with more of a round nose profile & same hs / case material
3 = pointed black or very dark grey, .325" compressed (somewhat like yours) paper bullet, lacquered steel case hs-AH (monogram) 43

Your round could be right but the profile looks like as Remington 30-40 Krag paper bullet. same color and construction.
What is the case headstamp?


#3

Is the bullet wood or paper?


#4

The bullet is hollow wood.
I pulled the bullet.Its maximum diameter is 8,11 mm
Headstamp is I / 19 / 15 / H

Motz has said me that it could be a Bulgarian later reload
