I know there have been several discussion on this but I can not find the discussion of the one Labelled MKC M stars. (Below). I had in my notes the citation for this as being made by Munitions Werke de Schonebeck, Elbe, Germany by “archived IAA Journal”. I am wondering if this is an error or if someone can advise. It looks a lot like all the other .577 MH headstamps with different letters made by CRG and FN Belgium.
I also have this one on an 8mm Lebel and wondering of the same? Looks a lot like a Kynoch one I have.
Then a similar one also in .577 MH caliber, Will Reuter just emailed me about. See pic below.
This one to me resembles a Kynoch headstamp, and while just a guess…Kynoch did make .577 MH cartridges in this caliber for the Maxim Machine Gun company for use in Africa for the Ashanti war and the Gordon Relief Expedition in 1884–85.
Can anyone shed any light or evidence to the manufacture of these 3 cartridges so I can be assured my information is accurate.
Thanks in Advance.
