5.45x39 ID

Thank you for the help on all the “ID” questions.

Here is another, 5.45x39 head stamp 539/ 87 & 91



These are Soviet LTL rounds named “Lastik”. The right one was supposed to be adopted (or actually was) but they had found it was piercing sculls at short range (what surprise).
The one with the white lid could be also containing some irritant but I have no confirmation right now.

Looked up Soviet LTL Lastik, but could not find anything. So are these short range tear gas? Glad I did not section them if so.

Kevin, I am not saying it definately is a CS load but could be. So far I have no data or know of a cutaway.
