I stand for Infantry
R stand for Rimmed.
Comming from the old German Armee Gewehr 88 Caliber 8X57I before the 1st WW the case was modified for breech action combination guns with a rim with less chamber pressure. After 1900 the caliber was enhanced by 2/10 of mm for better ballistics and was published under 8X57JRS
S stands for Special. These both calibers are not interchangable.
One other little thing- when you flip the switch on the left side of the gun, the rear sight either folds down or up - in contrast to if you plan on firing the rifle round...
