[quote=“dutch”]First of all, welcome to the forum.[/quote]Thank you!
[quote=“dutch”]Your first round was made by; Zbrojovka Brno, Brno, Czechoslovakia
In June 1938.[/quote]Al right! I didn’t know that. Where did you find that?
The second one is German made by; Teuto Metallwerke G.m.b.H., Osnabrück
The 13 th case lot of 1937.[/quote]That is what I found out myself indeed. But what is a case lot?
[quote=“dutch”]Both are 8 x 57 Mauser[/quote]I’m sorry, I’m really not yet into the world of guns and that kind of things. Is a Mauser a type of gun? And what does 8 x 57 mean?
[quote=“JPeelen”]As always in ammunition there are exceptions. But this is the basic answer.[/quote] Thank you, JPeelen! And how do you know all these things?
[quote=“dutch”]Some ware in 1916 it became standard, Cartridge for MG and rifle.[/quote]So the cartridges with lines were just used for machine guns? But is was used for a Mauser also?
[quote=“DocAV”]IN any case, the Germans dropped the use of Sector Lines after WW I.[/quote]So I can say my cartridge isnt used in WW2?
[quote=“DocAV”]Now the Cartridges; The First “Z” cartridge, is NOT “Brno” but the Former Plant of J.Roth (Bratislava) bought out by ZB in the Mid-1930s, and then transferred from Bratislava to Banka Bystrica in Central Slovakia.[/quote] What is ZB?
[quote=“DocAV”]THis ammo was uised in all combat activities of the Waffen-=SS[/quote]But you just told me this ridges weren’t used in WW2? I don’t understand it.
[quote=“DocAV”]Large Quantities of “Z” 7,9 is still appearing as Surplus out of Belarus and Ukraine since the late 1990s ( still in original Czech-style ammo crates.)[/quote] What does the 7,9 mean?
[quote=“DocAV”]What is the History of this Particular Beach? (Wartime and Post War?)[/quote]I actually haven’t found these cartridges on the beach, but in the dunes. But that might be a very Dutch way of speaking. The dunes are a large terrain near the coast, from the beach to approx. 7 km from the sea. So the terrain is very hilly and there are a lot of trees. Near the spot where I found them, there is this big house, with an enormous garden. The terrain I found these cardridges was part of this garden back in the war. During World War II first Dutch troops were stationed there, and later, it was confiscated by the Germans and then the military police. During the last weeks of war, and after the war, there were Canadians and the Interior Forces.
The spot I found the cartridges was on a hill, in a kind of a wood.
[quote=“Jack”]The German code dou. represents the facility at Povazska Bystrica in Slovakia, not Banska Bystrica.[/quote]All right, but what is dou. ?
