Attached are photos of a PPU 15 round box label for 7.62 x54mmR, case head and a cartridge. All of the cartridges in the box have Soviet made copper clad steel cases (all appear to have WW2 two digit dates) that have been, from what I understand, reloaded by PPU. The headstamps are difficult to read because apparently the cases were tumbled for cleaning purposes. So am I right to assume these are recovered fired casings that were cleaned, reprimed and reloaded and not salvaged cases from torn down cartridges, cleaned, reprimed and reloaded?
The label, near as I can tell, reads:(top 3 lines) 15 PIECES; 7,62 mm CARTRIDGE; WITH ᴧᴀᴋᴎᴍ BULLET M908 (s) (Cyrillic “c” = s)
The rest of the label reads PPU (lot) 6706,R (or Cyrillic “P”) and in the lower right corner is the powder type and powder designation.
Does the M908 refer to the Russian M1908 Spitzer bullet?
What do the Cyrillic “P” & “c” designate?
Would the first two numbers in the lot number, “6706”, indicate the year 1967?
Can someone translate ᴧᴀᴋᴎᴍ ?
Thanks for any help! Brian
