I was at a show this past weekend and a man had some old WWII Japanese ammo in a case. He had some orriginal 8mm nambu and 2 stripper clips of 7.7, one was steel cased, with no headstamp and had what appeared to be hollowpoint projectiles. Other was brass, no headstamp but with the normal FMJ projectile. He wanted $30 for each stripper, and $5 for 8 rounds of the 8mm nambu. Anyway, my question is what loading was the steel cased hollowpoint appearance rounds?
I also picked up some boxes of Czech repacked 1945 German 7.92x33 from this guy. Why were the Czechs repacking 7.92x33 in 1949-50? They were also packed on mixed 98 mauser clips of the thin type like the turks used, but not all brass. The box i bought was the later date and didnt have the stripper clips. I was also wondering why this round would have been packed on strippers on the 1946 timeframe by the Czechs.
