7.62x39 & 7.62x54R Zambia


#1

Are there other Zambian hs known than “Z28 90”.

Any info on existing hs, loads and details on the factory are welcome.


#2

Is there really no other year than 1990?


#3

EOD–That is the only round I am aware of.


#4

Ron, thanks. Seems we need to find more years then as the factory must have produced for longer than one year I guess.

Does anybody know who actually made them? (factory name and location)


#5

EOD–I have it listed as “Unknown Factory”. Just a wild guess, but a convenient factory that was producing in the same time frame would be Zimbabwean Industries, Zimbabwe. I have ball rounds from this factory headstamped 92 ZI and 97 ZI. However, the Zambia rounds are Copper Washed Steel while the ZI rounds are Brass. I would guess that whoever made the Zambia rounds was using Chinese equipment.


#6

Yes, I also excluded Zimbabwe as for their brass.

So we are still on the question of if Zambia has a factory.

Has ever anybody seen the Zambian packing material?
