Would appreciate any additional background information on this inert 8x57R JRS.
The headstamp includes the letters HP that ‘should’ be: Hirtenberger Patronen-, Zündhütchen-und Metallwarenfabrik A.-G., Hirtenberg, Niederdonau, Austria.
My questions are:
(i) Was this manufactured at Hirtenberger in Austria? I seem to recall reading, somewhere, that Hitrenberger had a subsidiary at Dordrecht, Netherlands. Unfortunately; I can’t now find that reference. Could this have been manufactured at Dordrecht, Netherlands?
(ii) Neither the Cartridge Collector, or Municion (8x57R JRS), make any reference, in their background material, to Hirtenberger as a manufacturer. Could anyone provide additional background material regarding manufacture (date?) at Hirtenberger?
