    This is 6.5mm Mannlicher Schonauer Hunting ammo was a very popular European hunting ctg. pre WW2... It was also used in the Greek Model 1903 Military rifle, this was the only military rifle I know of, using this 6.5mm M.S.... here is a picture of a Greek M.S. I do not have one in my collection, the pict is from the internet...BILL

    Thanks Bill,I was actually trying to find out who produced the ammo. Because of the French words on the label I wonder if it might be the old Dominion Cartridge Co. in Canada ?
