Can anyone ID this ammo?
8x57J 1933 dated. Came with a clip I bought for my GEW88. Thinking it's commercial not military.

Czechoslovakian commercial 8x57J, produced for export.

Made in March 1933 at the Československé Muniční a Kovodělné Závody A.S. ("Czechoslovakian Munitions and Metalworking Factory") in Bratislava. Factory was bought by Zbrojovka Brno (now known as CZ) in 1935.
