I was passing time this evening trying to match up some of my unidentified cartridge clips with any cartridge that might fit and this curiosity appeared.
The maker is well known and it was in the oddity bag because it looked a bit different to the average ‘DM’ 7x57mm clip. The form of the reinforcing folds on the base vary slightly from those I’ve seen. It is also a bit of a loose fit with 7mm cases. I had a Swedish blank to hand and this fitted perfectly as did the other four when I managed to dig them out. For some reason I hadn’t tried this combination before.
My question is (forgive my ignorance), did ‘DM’ make 6,5x55 ammunition and is it likely that they supplied it in marked clips?
In anticipation, Peter
