A83 - 5.7 X 33 AUSTRIAN TARGET PISTOL

 

Introduced in 1906 by Georg Roth, this cartridge remained in production until 1914. Often confused with the 5.7x33 Dreyse cartridge, but it has a larger case diameter. It is only known to exist with the GR/*/*/*/ headstamp. It was also chambered as a pistol cartridge and is also presumed to be G. Roth case number 751 which is listed as the 5.7x 32.8 pistol and revolver cartridge. It was not popular nor widely used and production was not resumed after WW1.
