8mm Austrian Mannlicher - ID help


#1

Hello,

I have two 8mm WWII Austrian Mannlicher rounds that I need some help identifying please:

S20180626_0004S20180626_0003

I think the first one may be Bulgarian.

I believe the second is Hungarian and the IAA Headstamp lists Csepel Arsenal near Budapest as the manufacturer. However, I’ve also seen it listed as Allami Hadianyaggyar Ammunition factory, also in Budapest. Is anyone able to confirm which it is please?

Thanks,
Darren
