I am trying to post some pics and ask for ID on this cartridge. I have identified it once 25 years ago, but can not remember the stats. A friend asked me if I knew what they were and i am at a loss. Help???

They appear to be Austrian-made 8x56R rounds for the Mannlicher 1895 series of rifles in 5-round clips; hope this helps.

Concur, 8x56R (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/8x56mmR) made after the German "Anschluss"
