    This is the only to me known box of 8x57 IS ammunition manufactured in Sweden for the Swedish defense. It has no other markings than the Amf 27 (Norma) and the caliber in mm. A box manufactured for the civilian market would never have the factory given with the military factory number. No date of manufacturing are to be found on the box or the cartridges. The cartridges is of civilian manufacturing and the head stamp reads "NORMA 8x57 JS" and is of spritzer type.
