I believe this is a Dutch 7.62 nato round the headstamp is AI 62 A nato symbol it has a Black non magnetic tip, what do I have ? observation/tracer or something else, thanks Randy
Sounds like a Dutch AP to me.
Can you have a Non Magnetic AP round ? if this is an AP what would its core be, please tell me more, thanks Randy
Thanks for the photo and info Dutch, that is not my round, mine is crimped into a smooth cannelure, this has to be a product of the stuffers friend “the faker”, I do have other words to describe them, I am sure Dutch you can guess what they are, regards Randy
Tungsten alloy is used in the best AP rounds and that is non-magnetic (at least, on checking the various tungsten alloy cores I have, the response to a strong magnet is weak to zero).
I hope you have a Section 5 for those, Tony!

My FAC covers me for everything except HE - which I wouldn’t want in the house anyway! I also included spotting rounds last time, as there is a degree of uncertainty over those.
