VAPEX Import & Export AB, Vellinge Sweden apprently went into business in 1987 as a sporting goods store which also sold reloading supplies and ammunition. In 1997 they broadened into mailorder. Today they appear to be a very successful internet supplier.
About 4 years ago, at a meeting in Germany I saw a headstamp “9mm Luger VAPEX” which looked like it was made by CBC in Brazil.
Unfortunately It had already been sold! I wrote a few emails trying to find more, with very little luck, other than discovering that the “VAPEX” also appears on Russian made 7.62x39 ammunition sold by the company.
Note the box says “Made in Russia” and “Made for Libra” which is a Czech company!!!
Has anyone seen any ammunition by this company?
When were they using their own headstamp?
Any idea how I would contact the reloading community in Sweden to see if someone has some of these 9x19mm cases laying on their reloading bench.
Any help appreciated.
