Hungarian 8x50R Mannlicher with 55mm case lenght


#1

I have this interesting cartridge in my collection. It is a 55mm long case version of the M93 Mannlicher cartridge and was made by Weiss-Manfred in 1922.
And that’s all what i know for sure. I know that Austria made some cartridges with 55mm case length, but i have never seen any documentations about Hungarian specimens. I also need help ID’ing the bullet.

Could some tell me more about this cartridge?

Regards,
Vince

It’s look like Austrian AP-cartridge “Panzer-Patrone No. XX”. Austrian cartridge had a Bullet lenght 28,20-28,55 mm and special case 55,0-55,3 mm long.
