    This tracer cartridge has a red case mouth seal and a quite rough case mouth crimp. The primer annulus has a black colour. The projectile jackets material is made of GMCS. This is the only cartridge of the 8x63 that is using a case mouth seal, and the reason behind it is unknown to me. It is of a late production though, 1945 from the Karlsborg factory.

    This cartridge created 1940 has a odd primer. It is non magnetic and are dark to the color. I have my suspicion of that the primers might be manufactured in Germany and then imported to Sweden.

    Is this a manufacturing error? The tip is neither white or black, just gray. It is probably a tracer ere the white paint have been polluted in production. I think it is a interesting cartridge though, and if you happen to have a insight of your own feel free to suggest it to me.
