Default WTS: Nazi marked 8x56r Austrian ammo on clips

I have 40 20 18 16 13 9 7 0 boxes - SOLD - of Nazi Marked 8X56R Austrian ammo that are surplus to my needs.
Each box contains 10 rounds on two enbloc clips.
Some of the clips are marked with the Reichsadler, if that's important to you, let me know.

I'm asking $15 a box, plus actual shipping. Please PM or email.

Here's a short history lesson on the markings of this 8x56r Austrian ammo for those interested.

At the 12 o'clock position of the headstamp is a Roman numeral that indicates the month of manufacture,
the 9 and 3 o'clock positions show the year of manufacture,
so the ammo in the picture I posted in the picture below was made in August, 1938.

The marking at the 6 o'clock position is the manufacturer's mark.
The two headed eagle Austrian Crest was used until the time of the German annexation of Austria in 1938
when they started using the German eagle (Reichsadler or Imperial Eagle).
I also have a limited amount of ammunition with the Austrian crest available.

I like to mention this ammo whenever someone asks the question if "old" ammunition is still good.
I've shot some of this ammo from my M95 and let me tell you this, it'll give you a "wake up call" every time you squeeze the trigger.
It's 75 years old and I've not had a failure to fire yet. The recoil is fierce when fired from my M95.

For those not familiar with the M95 rifle, I'll post a link to a picture of my rifle. It's a rather small, straight-pull, bolt action rifle.
The rounds are loaded with the enbloc clip into a box magazine.
The clip falls free of the rifle through a hole in the bottom of the box magazine when the last round is chambered.

Here's a picture that shows the difference between the headstamps.
January, 1938 with the Austrian crest, and August, 1938, with the Reichsadler.

Do you have a box of each of the Austrian headstamp and Reichsadler headstamp left with the Reichsadler stamp on the clips? If so I would like them.

Just for grins, I'd like to get four (4) boxes - two (2) with the Nazi Reichsadler, and two (2) with the Austrian double headed eagle.

Please email payment details. I am at zip 35803.
