    Here is a interesting new box of 7,62x51, produced by factory 633, from the factory GGG, AB GIRAIT?S GINKLUOT?S GAMYKLA in Lithuania, produced 2013. The cases has the factory stamped as GGG, so not following the Swedish standard. The few comments I have seen states it to be a ammunition of good accuracy.

    The import of ammunition has normally ended up with a box of Swedish design. This box of 7,62x51 ball amunition is a exception, and also the bottom stamp of the cartridge is "MAN". The ammunition is of "B" specification so the projectile is led free and the cartridge is of a more environmental friendly design.
    The ammunition is delivered from the company MEN in Germany.
    One "wonderful" thing with the box is the warning in German were maybe Google translate has been used. The German word "Wurfstucke" is translated to "kaststycke", close to "throw pieces". I think they mean "rikoschett", a ricochet as noone I know of in Sweden would use the word "kaststycke" without the need of an further explanation.

    This box of ammunition is intended for the Pvpj 1110 (Pansarvärnspjäs 1110) (90 mm recoiless Gun), were a spotter rifle in 7,62x51 is mounted in parallel with the main guns barrel. The mechanics of the spotter rifle is originating from the Ag m/42B rifle, so suitable to be used with a stripper clip. The box is not labeled as with stripper clip, only the plastic container holding the boxes is correctly labeled. This has kept the box quite unknown actually, as it is difficult to identify it without opening the box.
    This ammunition is manufactured by Hirtenberger, Austria in 1971.
    The stripper clip in use for the 7,62x51 ammunition is the same as for the 6,5x55 ammunition.
