[quote=“jean-pierre”]You know the 7.5 * 45 CZ
(Rim diam : 10.70 mm; head diam : 10.70, bullet diam : 7.60 mm)
You know also the the 7.62 * 45 CZ WHO WAS THE MODEL AFTER
(Rim diam : 11.15 mm; head diam : 11.15 mm, bullet diam : 7.75 mm) .
But what is this round :
7.62 * 45 CZ
(Rim diameter : 10.30 mm; head diam: 10.30 mm, bullet diam : 7.72 mm)
Copper washed steel case, tombac bullet
hstp : 19 PS 46 7.62
I have another round excatly the same but hstped twice with this same hstp !!This other case
Has somebody some info ?
you are sure, this ammo has a STEEL case?? All my ones have a brass case. They are all reddish from use of acid to clean them, so they all look a bit, like copperplated, but are not. Please check with a magnet the base of the case, so that you not interfere with the inside (steeljacketed) bullet.
Mine have all the same headstamp and comes in 2 variations: LARGE and SMALL primer…
Because, if its really a steel case, i had to add a missing one in my list.
There is also an other experiment between this 2 forunners of the later 7,62x45 M1952. It has a basediameter completelly others at 10,40-42mm and NO HS at all. The neck is also slightly different from all others…
So what I have here is:
Unheadstamped one, 10,40–10,42mm base Pre-runner
headstamped ones with 7,62 in hs (even as bulletdiameter is a real 7,5mm), with an actual bullet diameter of 7,65-7,72mm) headstamp 19 PS 46 7,62, and base diameter of 10,20 -at least mine have that, some even less-
a) with small primer and
b) with large primer
3) than follows the Mod47 7,5x45 with the well known 10,70mm base and various headstamps for the ZG47 rifle
and than comes the Modell 50/52 in 7,62x45 with a 11,15-11,20mm base with a bullet dieametr of 7,82-7,85mm.
The rifle Modell 52/57 has nothing to do anymore with this range, as it was adapted to the AK47 round.
So please let me knew, if yours are really copperwashed steel cases…
All my best
