    What's the meaning of the ADK stamp? Another version in a triangle shape with the crown in the middle is known.
    A published explanation is 'Armé Depot Karlsborg', but at that time the correct notation could be Carlsborg (I don't know when they switched from C to K).
    Who can solve the riddle?

    I have no written evidence but have understood K is for Karlsborg, as well as in pre-war made 6,5x55 cases stamped K.
