The second one is from unknown year and shows excatly the same ctges and also :
9 mm Belgian and Dutch
480 (or Montenegrin) for Gasser & Werndl revolver
German Reich revolver
44 S&W
44 Russian

I dont know the dates of starting manufacturing of these rounds.
do you have some idea ??

JP–The .44 S&W (Also called .44 S&W No. 3 American or just .44 S&W American) was introduced sometime between 1868 & 1870. The .44 S&W Russian first came out in 1870/71.

If by "9 mm Belgian and Dutch 480 (or Montenegrin) for Gasser & Werndl revolver German Reich revolver " you mean the 9.4 mm Dutch, then it was first adopted by the Dutch Army in 1873. If you mean some other round, then I have no idea.

It was I thought, all these rounds are old.

I don’t understand why they don’t put a date on their catalogues !! lol!
