This Nato round is headstamped MS ( nato symbol) 233-64 brass case and primer with Green seals and a Red tip which makes it a tracer round but who is MS the other numbers may be batch number and date made 1964 ? could be German or ? appreciate any info Thanks Randy
7.62mm Leuchtspur DM21 made by Manusaar in the former West Germany, lot number 233 of 1964.
This reminds me on this incident:
Hard to believe one single overloaded round can do this.
Is it the same factory that makes civilian ammo with the M&S headstamp?
Pivi, no it is a different one today located in East Germany.
The military ones here are not related.
Manusaar AG (MS), B
MANUSAAR is also known for its experiments in light alloy cases, around the same period.
Thanks to all Randy
