    This box of 9x20 is basically not different from the others of 1912-13, but it does illustrate the thrifty nature of the Marieberg organization with the change of the year (from 1912 to 1913) on the box done by hand with a pen. Let nothing go to waste.

    This box was made by Marieberg ammunition factory on July 17, 1921 and is mysteriously labeled "With enhanced loading". The exact meaning and purpose of
    this marking is unknown. It is also mysteriously labeled, "9mm Live pistol cartridges m/94" but it is clearly a m/07 box and cartridges. There are multiple speculations on
    the purpose of these cartridges but it still remains unsolved.

    This box was from the Arne Thell Collection and has been published in the Scandinavian Ammunition Research Association (SARA) Bulletin, where it has been scanned for use here by our good friend Morten Støen.

    This box from the 1937 produced in the Mariberg factory has a extra stamp on the lid saying "Småfelsptr". Spelled out it says "Småfelspatroner", Cartridges with minor errors. In the production check they are found not to be perfect, but usable. If they were produced in the 1940’s they would probably of been called "Endast för fredsskjutning", only for peacetime training, E.g, not for war.

    This box has the additional text "May only be used for pistol m/07 and submachine gun m/37". At this time the 9x19 cartridge had also been introduced (1939) and a special warning was needed to avoid confusion.

    Swedish produced ammunition is generally of a top-notch quality and it is strange to release ammunition with flaws. This box is stamped with a comment "Lösa kulor",
    best translated as "projectiles are loose". Maybe the projectiles are seated well enough for training purposes, but it would still create uneven pressures resulting in a larger spread on the target when fired. The ammunition was produced by the Marieberg factory in 1941.

    This box of 9x20 ammunition encased in plastic is a so called MOB box. These were
    produced for the home guard and were to be kept at home. In case of emergency,
    the box can be broken open and used, but only under the direct orders of an officer. It is impossible to see the year of manufacture, but it is probably from the 1970’s.
