    This is the only box of 7.92x57mm ammunition manufactured in Sweden for the Swedish defense thus far reported. It has no markings other than Amf 27 (Norma)
    and the caliber. No dates of manufacturing are to be found on either the box or the cartridge headstamps. The cartridges have a standard Norma civilian headstamp of "NORMA 8x57 JS" and are loaded with spitzer type projectiles. While the cartridges have commercial headstamps, ammunition intended for civilian sale would never be packed in a box with military factory markings.
