7.62x39mm Tracer


#1

This round doesn’t look Soviet to me despite the headstamp which clearly says that it is. However, I cannot find any other reference to Soviet rounds in this calibre using green primer and casemouth seals. Has it been reloaded by somebody else perhaps?


#2

This is not common specimen.

This is Soviet cartridge. For a short time in 60th tracers had green varnish (also without green tip) and PS cartridges with purple varnish.

Thank you Yuri.

Yes, 100% correct Soviet item and not too often seen.
