I just joined this forum and would like to already thank some of you, for postings that helped me ID some ammo I got from my dad-in-law. He served in the 612th Tank Destroyer Bn as the XO of Charlie Co., seeing action in Normandy, Brest, Northern France, Bulge and the Rhineland campaign. Came home without a scratch!
You helped me ID an 8mm Lebel round I have. I also have about 10 rounds of what looks like 8mm Mauser (head stamps of DM & 43). I have a few odd rounds I can't tell what they are.
They look like a long 9mm Para, with headstamp markings of: IX, P, 38 and the Nazi crest. Another round is a rifle round approx the same length as the Mauser's, but it has a funny double shoulder on it and an un-jacketed lead bullet. Head stamp is: St*, eej,43 & 4. Thx again for the help. Ps: I can't figure out how to put the photos in this email! They are stored in my pictures file on my PC.
