a new old 10,75x68 ammo box
      #349323 - 16/01/21 08:40 PM

for 5-6 years I look for a 10 rounds box 10,75x68, headstamp PS for Povazske Strojane. iirc, this was before the great war a subsidiari of Keller/ Vienna in Povaska Bystrica, german name Waagbistritz, slovakia. they made a lot of the old cartridges like 8x50R mannlicher, 6,5x53R and the mannlicher-schönauer cartridges still into the 1960s.
the firm don#t exist anymore today.







the box was for sale in france now and louis help me to bring it home.
thank you very much again here louis!


I had the special obsession to get all 6 brands of 10,75x68 that were made in the 1950/60s.
when thinking now I have them all, good lord was I wrong, the RWS box is only the late 1980s made 20 rounds box.
I still missing the most common brand as an old 10 rounds box.






the 10,75x68, nobody like it anymore today but it was a work horse for big game hunting once.

Well done Lancaster on your unique 10.75x68 cartridge collection!
Yes it was an old workhorse of latter years, nothing wrong with it at all really.
With new powders & good projectiles it would easy equal the great 450-400.
As to finding things Louis, perhaps you should change your 'name' to 'Scrounger'!
Wonderful find for a good mate.

That's pretty cool, lancaster.
The only odd-ball ammo I have is a couple 10 round boxes of Kynoch 9x57 Mauser, 245gr.SP's.
