Yesterday at a small local show, I was helping my buddy out at his tables. Another mutual friend wanted to dump some 7.62x25 Tokarev ammo he had. He had repacked it all in plastic 50 round boxes, save one original packet which I took. I took a few loose rounds too so I didn’t have to open the packet.
So I want to identify the ammo, and couldn’t find the headstamp in my couple of headstamp ID books. The packets are 16 round paper wrapped tied with tan twine. There is a label in cyrillic on it, so I assume its Russian, or Yugo, or Romanian or some such. The headstamp is a 5-pointed star at 12:00 o’clock, a “3” (or possibly a “9”) at 9:00 o’clock, a “10” at 3:00 o’clock, and a “53” (or possibly a “63”) at 6:00 o’clock. No case mouth or primer annulus sealant.
I can get pics of the headstamp and packet if needed…
