I am confused ? due to language issues.
8mm Rim-fire or center-fire ?
I have trouble with England and I have lived in the USA for 70 years :-)
Happy Easter everyone! God Bless all, stay safe.

“Percussion centrale” translates to central percussion or centre fire. If I understand correctly they are inside primed centre fire cartridges.

Do the flat bottom cartridges in the box have a crimp on the case sides close to the rim at the bottom of the case? (To hold an internal primer in place?
Also I see two picture (1.), 25 cartridges in a box with with flat bottoms, and (2.) a picture showing the bottom of one center fire cartridge. not the same items. (?)

Another label style and with original string
