    Default Can someone tell me what these stamps mean?

    I am pretty sure they are 7.92×57mm Mauser.
    And I found them them in former Yugoslavia if that helps.

    Left: is mande by FN Belgium for Serbia, here just with Cyrillic font.
    Right: "JR" is Georg Roth Pressburg (Austria) then in Czechoslovakia (city renamed to Bratislava) where his name was spelled "Jiri Roth" and the logo also changed from initially "GR" to "JR".

    Thank you so much!

    So would you say they were mostly likely used by axis forces?

    As they are Serbian and we can not tell if they were fired before 1940 or later or again after 1945 it is impossible to tell.

    They were found around a series of bunkers which were held by the German army up april or may 1945 at which point the bunkers were conquerd by Yusgoslav partisans.
    So I think it is very likely they were fired in 1945.

    Yes, as for the context this makes sense.
