In my experience all Bulgarian 8x56R ammo has been flawless so far.

Много нтересно....
1938 е годината, когато в ДВФ едновременно се произвеждат и двата боеприпаса - 8Х50R и 8Х56R. Съдейки по капсулното гнездо и капсула, този патрон би трябвало да е 8Х50R. Ако наистина е 8Х56R, вероятно е някакъв междинен образец. Моля за по-подробни снимки на целия патрон. Предварително благодаря....

П.П. Ник, помагай с превода....
Valo62 is a Bulgarian collector with extensive research on Bulgarian ammo manufacture.

Translation:

"1938 is the year when both 8x50R and 8x56R were manufactured. Judging by the primer pocket and the primer itself, the cartridge [on the picture above] should have been 8x50R. If it is indeed 8x56R, then it must be a transition sample [between 8x50R and 8x56R]. Please, show more pictures of the entire round. Thanks in advance."

So, claudester, would you be so kind as to post a few more shots of the round from different angles and perspectives? TIA,

Nick

Oh, yes, it is 8x56R for sure. And if it isn't I will give you TWO 8x56R rounds for each 8x50R you have + shipping both ways!
