    Mike Ford already answered most of your questions, so here are just some add-ins:
    When it was made?
    As Mike wrote, from 1893 to 1912. As it is for one of the countless lead bullet, black powder cartridge, most likely in the first years of that time span. About 1895 is as close as I dare to say. The scope claw mount bases were certainly added later.
    Is it possible to know who was first owner?
    No. That fancy monogram and the compass were likely put on later, in Russia? It does not look like German at all.
    What is caliber and cartridge of rifle barrels?
    Please, post a photo of the cartridges and their measurements, as Mike asked for. The CARTRIDGES only, please. The "NGP M71" mentioned by Mike was black powder.
    later, i'll do bullet from plumbum = Blei (German) = lead (English).
    Post the diameter and weight too. The bullet mould appears to be for a hollow pointed bullet. The cores for forming the hollow point may be missing, but are easy to make.
    Do you have any ideas - for what is inner pocket of this cartridge belt?
    Other than the German leater box for rifle cartridges, that belt is certainly not German. It rather looks like Russian/Soviet military equipment to me, but may be civilian. No idea what the inner pocket is for.

    Again, overlapping posts. The cartridge you show is a German M71 Mauser military cartridge, made by Spandau arsenal. In civilian use the cartridge is known as 11.15 x60R, in America as the .43 Mauser. It was a popular hunting cartridge too until the 1890s. Last listed in the 1934 DWM catalog, obsolete sine the mid 1930s. It was always loaded with 5 gramm = 77 grains black powder and a 25 g = 386gr lead bullet. Never factory loaded with smokeless powder or jacketed bullets. Mike ford once wrote an article for the GGCA "Waidmannsheil" about making cases and loading for this cartridge.

    Thank you, Axel for your answer.
    Compass and cartridge belt does not look like Soviet or Russian. neither of my friends didn't see the same cartridges belt.
