I obtained these boxes a few years ago and have just got around to looking at them. My first problem is I do not understand German nor the abbreviations which are used on the label.
The ammunition on the inside of the box appears to be repacked. It includes manufacturer codes: hlb, P, P25, P163, P181, and P315. All the ammunition is marked S* so the casing is common among all cartridges in the pack, and all appear to be S.m.K. loadings because they all have a red primer annulus.
What can anyone tell me about these boxes? Did someone just have some boxes laying around and stuff them with S.m.K. rounds? Is the ammunition proper to the box as repacked by German munitions workers?
Thank you for any information you can provide.
