    have 3 different 310 sako cartridges, wonder did they come in different boxes to this one ?
    how about a photo of your 25 cal projectile box, what code no is on the pkt ? sako actually made 25-20w ammo with semi pointed projectiles, as well as 68gr semi pointed projectiles. often wonder what the guys with lever guns thought of them !!
    in my ammo collection i have 1 rnd of sako factory loaded 218 bee, any scc memebers sighted a box for this rnd ? have never been able to find one down here.

    Susanna, I know TW has a Sako 310 box. It is definitely of the same style as yours but I will see if I can get some pics to compare the detail.
    He was happy to part with a Red and black ten round 243 box but not the 310!
    I have also seen SAKO ammo listed in an old Mick Smith catalog too. 310 may have been listed there.

    I will ask a guy in Finland if he has seen any 218 boxes. He knew of the sako 310 ammo but said that most shooters over there would not. He sent a bunch of empty boxes over for me. Some nice newer boxes and a couple of spares that I will bring along next time we meet.

    never thought to ask TW about sako boxes, him being a true blue aussie only collector.
    i also have a few mick smith catalogs will have a closer look. for sure it would have been something smiths sports store would have done to feed the never ending supply of matini cadets.
    nice to get boxes from the mother country.
    regards the 218 bee ammo made by sako, seems to be a secret. maybe should put a photo up.

    Susanna,
    I have some of these boxes i would be happy to part with a couple, as you can see there is some damage to the packaging, from not being packed correctly when shipping.
    They have not been opened and have 50 projectiles in each box.
    The white box is shown, only for those who have not seen one before,
    I would date these red/orange boxes, as late 50's, but i am sure you know alot about these, so whats your thoughts?

    i nearly missed your reply & photo.
    sorry to dissapoint but dont think anyone knows to much about sako reloading supplies esp me ! have several 25 cal pkts but DO not have your orange colour box, in fact have never seen one before. what i can tell you the 102E code is the same semi point bullet in the few sako factory 25-20 rnds i have. do have similar boxes to the white box in your photo but not with that product code, what weight is on the box end for this box ? sako also made 25 cal projectiles for their 25/35W ammo.
    have what look to be the same bullet but are 68gr, think sako made them then stamped the boxes with what ever the true weight turned out to be.
    another aussie member, alpinehunter has a few of these style of box maybe we can put a short list together ? will take a few photos of some of mine over the weekend.
    pm would be good regards your spare boxes.

    Susanna,
    Not sure what these are, but there is a mixed box of about 30 proj, with two different designs.
    The one on the left with cannelure is about 71gns and the one on the right is 72 gns.
    I am assuming that the box belongs to the71gn projs, with the cannelure as there are about 25 odd in the box.
    Any ideas what the M 101 E stands for on the box?
    Does your loaded rounds have any date stamp on the box?
    I have a couple with '51, day and month, stamped along the top
    Feel free to post a photo of your Bee case also!

    Wow, those orange ones are some nice projectile boxes! Never seen ones like that in person or even pictures on the net.

    These are my 25 cal boxes.

    These first two are code 111E which according to the single projectile remaining in each box, is the semi pointed one that susanna mentioned.

    Both of these boxes are empty so I cant compare the projectiles.
    No projectile code on this one.

    102E on this one.

    What a great thread, i will have to dig up all my boxes and go through them! so some have not seen daylight for a while,
    Not being a cartridge collector, like you guys, what are you seeing with the 'M 102 E' coding?
    I am assuming it refers to the projectile type?
    Have you guys started to log this yet?
    I would be happy to try to date some of these with you,

    Sounds like the single pointed projectiles I have in the 111E boxes might not be correct.

    Yes the M. 102 E is the projectile code. It is usually just the number followed by the letter so I guess M. is just an abbreviation for "model" or something similar in Finnish.
    Somewhere there will be a list of what all of these codes actually are. Maybe an old catalogue or some factory document. It would be great to get hold of the lists from the 50s and 60s! The current ammunition lists have the codes but not for anything that is not current production so no 25-20 codes.

    As far as dating goes - the only date I have is a photo of a rough version of this box with the date stamped 15 8 51. I took the photo at one of our Australian Cartridge Collectors Association meetings last year. (this isn't the actual box but similar style if not the same as much of the label was missing)

    I have a couple of these orange boxes available to colectors, they are a bit damaged on the ends, but have not been opened
    Please PM me with an offer, i can email you some pics of the other boxes as required.
    Australian buyers only, as it is too difficult to export them.

    A recent addition to my collection that relates to the conversation about pointed 25 cal projectiles.
    Unfortunately it is packed away and I can't remember which projectile code it is. Just a quick photo from my phone in bad light, sorry.
    [​IMG]
    The added label seems to be a warning about the pointed projectiles and tubular magazines.
