8x56R Kropatschek


It says what it says and it measures right but the headstamp looks funny. Is it home-made?


Might very well be, a new headstamp to me & not military.

Although the “6” and the “X” look double stamped none of the other letters are. So a strong indication it was hand stamped and a bunter was not being used. Also the bullet doesn’t look correct.
