    Default 7.92mm Mauser rounds + Cardboard box

    A new recent purchase. A Pre ww2 German Cardboard box with paper label for holding 15 7.92mm Ball mauser rifle rounds.

    Nothing too interesting here to discuss. So i will skip to the markings.

    13 of the rounds have the markings of
    P25 - Manufacturer- Metallwarenfabrik Treuenbrietzen GmbH
    1938 - Year made
    5 - Batch number
    S* - a variant of the original S case made of 72% copper, that was standardised between WW1 and 2
    Green tracer colour

    2 of the rounds were mixed in here and are different
    p413 - Manufacturer- “DWM” Deutsche Waffen- und Muntionsfabriken
    1939 - Year made
    And a red tracer colour.

    The box however is 1937 dated with a manufacturer stamp of E.F.W . I dont know the maker. Please note it is not EFW from the 1940 onwards three letter codes.

    I threw in one photo comparing the 7.92mm .303 and 9mm rounds. To give size-reference.

    Overall a nice little addition to the ammo shelf! Enjoy.

    I second the above. These boxes of ammunition are a nice way to feather displays of combat gear. They display especially well alongside the corresponding weapon.

    Hmm would asking a MG42 for Christmas be a tough call at my age

    If you asked nicely, I'm sure santa could fit it on his sleigh!

    A nice addition to your collection,the primer annulus colours red and green do not indicate tracer colours,red is AP and green is standard ball.Tracer ammo would have a black bullet tip and a variety of primer colours,so a black tip with red primer would be AP tracer and so on.......Pete.

    Thanks Zwerge! Now that I think about I realise if this was a belt of Just tracer it would be pretty weird.

    Great box of ammo,
    I so regret shooting the "Surplus" ammo I used for plinking back in the 80's. Now its collectable. All I have now are empty shells and a couple of floaters in the bottom of my ammo cans..

    I always find it interesting how much period live ammo got to America. I remember seeing fellow member UK cousin a while back post his stash of Period German Mauser rounds that could be fired.

    What Gun were you firing them from? Just out of curiosity.

    Nice ammo mate.
    Hard to find that stuff here.

    An MG42 is definitely a good list item.....I'd send Santa a feldpost letter so he knows what you want this year!
