your thoughts on German 8 X 57 ammo
Any thoughts on exactly what this is are appreciated.I believe it is a 300 rd. pack, containing 20 packets of 15 rds. each. The loose packet and rounds are from the same lot code so I included them to help i.d. the larger pack. The 300 rd pack is unopened. Date appears to be 1937. I have been told that it is AP tracer. Not sure what color "grunrot" is, (green-red in German?) . I have fired a few of the 15 rd. packets, all went off normally but very few traced. Any thoughts on value? I don't want to shoot it if it is "collectable". Thank you
