Сокол = falcon (brand name), Ловни гилзи = hunting cartridges.

René, very nice box, thanks for sharing. “Sokol” is a very popular brand of powder that was made by several countries along the years. This one shows the logo (falcon head) of the one made at Kazanlak (10). Also, the cases are assembled by Russian “Shevelo” primers.

Regards,

Fede

Just to have all following, the “Shevelo” or better “Zhevelo” means it is “Gevelot” type primers.
