7.62 x 39mm ID


#1

A garage sale goodie.

HS is 05 79
All magnetic
Came in a 10-partition plastic tray with paper label.
Label says “10 Stuck M 48 Ub” in 2 lines.

Very light weight. Bullet may be hollow.

There are 9 left in the box which has been opened.

What is it??

East German 7.62x39? It’s funny, I was handling the same on a stripper clip when you post appeared. Here is my headstamp.


#3

Ub is short for Ubungsmunition (Practice Munition)


#4

East German short-range practice ammunition (“Ubungsmunition”); the bullets are steel-jacketed, but with a black plastic core, so you don’t need a heavy/large backstop or deep safety area.

Oops, I was IDing Ray’s round that had the 05 headstamp, I should have specified which round I was refering too.

Thanks for the book suggestion.

The data sheet that comes packed in the crate for this ammunition indicates a sight setting on the MPi-KM of “3” (300M) for use to 100 Meters and “4” for use to 150 Meters. For the LMG-K used to 300M a sight setting of “5” is indicated. The “Sicherheitstiefe” (safety range?) is shown as 1,300 Meters. I’ve fired a bunch of this stuff in AK and SKS type rifles and found them to be great fun. Very light recoil and decent accuracy. Functioning in the SKS is hit and miss though. There is also a tracer version of this cartridge with an all-green lacquered projectile.
