If I’m not wrong, “Re” means reloadable cases (Boxer primed).

Zeliard–When Norma ammunition was introduced to the US market in the 1950’s, the regular Swedish production was Berdan primed. That sold in the US was Boxer primed and the “Re” stood for “Reloadable” The Swedish cases were headstamped “N” or “NORMA” without the “Re”. Today the headstamp is “norma” for all of their production and it is, I think, all boxer primed regardless of where it is sold.

Wasn’t Norma Re a movie with Sally Field? (snicker).
