Ammunition s.S. was originally made designed for use with a long-range machine gun.
S.m.E. ammunition was developed as a replacement for SS ammunition in order to save on lead and other metals, which became a shortage in Germany during the Second World War. The core of the projectile was covered with a relatively thin layer of lead.
The box marked "Für Gewehr" was filled with ammunition, which used less material for production (it contained thinner cartridges sufficient for rifles).
Other military ammunition was made with stronger cartridges and their boxes were marked "Für MG".
Box marked "i.L." or also "in Ladestreifen" contained cartridges that were placed in clips.
