Looking through some old boxes I ran across several boxes of ammo. I had numerous milsurps many years ago (20+) of various caliber including a GEW98. I’m wondering if this is ammo was for it or something else. Honestly I just don’t remember and was surprised to find these boxes.

I’d appreciate any insight as to what I have here and, if you can tell from the box or stamping where it might have come from. Thank you

The nny rather than PPU headstamp and the “NC-05” on the label make me “suspect” that 8mm might be noncorrosive. No guarantee as Prvi NC primers often have a flat face profile..but I would love to test that stuff.
And a French label? Made for a French speaking African nation?
