They are supposed to be for a 5.6X52R/22 Hi-Power and weigh 70gr
Does the box really show 5.6 x 41? Because those look nothing like a .22 Savage Hi-Power shell.
And 22 Savage Hi-Power 70 gr. bullets are .227" diameter.
5.6 X 21....They are supposed to be bullets for reloading not shells
Seller & Bellot loaded ammo for the 22 HP is marked 5.6X52R
Those are unusual, can you post larger pictures with a few angles?
Googlefoo, and translate suggests these are RWS made.
D-Mantel, D-coate, D-sheath, are all other terms I pulled up. Basically double jacketed, with the silver being very mild steel.
If that guess is right, than these are from the 2nd quarter of the 1900s, tho I didn't dig deep enough to find out production dates.
Again from reading translated forum posts, sounds like these were very soft and tended to cause significant wounding, but possibly little penetration.
This thread directly mentions the 5.6x52r
RWS Currently produces a bullet called the H-mantel, but it doesn't appear to have the same construction.
