    I have a strange shell 7.92x57mm coded S* cg 5 41, second on the foto, 57mm tall like a regular shell. If somebody knows something about it...
    I was told that its a hunting cartridge (but who knows?).

    Looks like it could be a DWM stamp for 7.92x57 Finower Industrie of Germany May 1941.

    Thanks for your answer but the difference is that the cartridge is 10mm x 57mm instead of 7.92 x 57mm ( look the neck of the shell, its much wider)

    It looks like someone made a 10.75x57 mannlicher case out of a 8x57 mauser case.

    Ahh I see! Your original post was a little misleading. Ol' Zwerge's on the money I reckon as Mauser produced a hunting rifle inbetween the war years that used a 10.75x57 shoulderless cart. I believe that the very rare 1912 Mannlicher-Schonauer was chambered in some cases to 10x57, again a sporting round.

    Much more likely that some idiot fired a 7.92x57 in a .30-06 rifle (7.63x63mm)!

    I just can`t see how an 8x57 would be able to blow out straight in a 30-06 chamber? Unless it was in a semi-auto that fired before being locked up?

    It looks to me like a 7.92 x 57 taken from the production line before the shoulder has been formed.
