    un-marked ammo is odd, usually un marked ammo is for clandistine shipping or unknown origin, well its brass and it has military crimped primers, and the nickel plated projectiles are eurpoean style
    if you google or search the web there is a site for ammo collectors, those guy know the sh*t. the only ammo I have ever seen unmarked was chinese and they had plenty of pre-war 8mm's

    That may be some the Germans spindled out as their manufacturing plants were being bombed night & day in 1944? Guess I would skip the lable step too if they needed the
    8mm ammo ASAP!

    That doesn't look like nickel plating, more like cupro-nickel clad bullets - common enough in the early 1900s.

    A quick search using "8mm ammo no headstamp" brought up some threads indicating it might be sanitized Czech ammo.

    Help ID 8mm ammo with no headstamp?
    8x57mm.... No Headstamp???? Anybody???? [Archive] - Calguns.net
    I have a daughter. I tell her, "911 is what you dial after you're raped. 1911 is what you should have before they try."

    Wasn't meant to pick on you, just gotta keep after stuff else it grows into "the truth" somewhere along the line.
