8x27mmR model 1892 "S.F 39 I 4"

It is about 9x22mm. With segmented headstamp. Is it something French?

Please check the length again. Should be 27.5mm, for 8mm French Ordinance Revolver.

I: Issy-Les-Moulineux, ( village of Issy of the Watermills), where SF M was located, on the lower Seine, outside Paris… now a redeveloped suburb.
Essentially SFM supplied its own metal for case manufacture.
