Another area that I have need for a deeper level of knowledge is the 8x58RD cartridge. The vernacular in Sweden is 8x58RD so I’ve taken to use that for the 8x58R Danish cartridge.
I’ve owned and shot and handloaded for 8x58RD in the m/1889 Swedish rolling block. But I’m also the Krag forum moderator at www.gunboards.com so the use of this cartridge in the m/1889 Danish Krag crosses paths frequently. As used by Sweden and Denmark they are not/were not loaded to the same level. Initially perhaps in the early 1890s they may have been but by the m/1908 patron things changed for the Krag but not the rolling block.
In my cartridge collection, such as it is, I have samples of original Danish and Swedish and Norma commercial 8x58RD.
Keller & Company, Austria dated 1893. Factory loaded cartridge.
I’ve been led to believe this Danish military case was reloaded for Sweden and specifically for the 13th Infantry Reg’t. The markings would bear that out but I don’t know for sure.
