    40 mm L/70 Info wanted please

    Hi there , I just picked up a couple of cases and was looking for some information. I know they're 40mm L/70 cases but as from the photos the headstamp shows LOT 03-RA-96. IS this Raufoss or Remmington. Only info extra on primer is M39FI.
    The case also has a small (5mm) hole in the side,about 150mm from the top. IS this a sort of deactivation thing?? Any ideas appreciated20181103_145714.jpg20181103_145637.jpg

    Problem is that Raufoss and Remington have the same stamp !
    You must know the origin of your case Norway (Raufoss) or USA (Remington)
