7.62x45 Czech weight?


#1

Can anybody please tell me the weight of a (brass case) 7.62x45 Czech ball cartridge?

My one & only specimen weighs 290.5gns. I’m pretty certain it’s live and it’s headstamped ‘bxn * 12 51’.

I have 4 ball rounds with brass cases. The total cartridge weights are:

bxn * 1 52 288.4 grains
bxn * 2 52 290.8 grains
bxn - * 3 52 288.6 grains
I 52 bxn 287.1 grains

Thanks to both of you! Wikipedia shows weight as 18.9 grams (292 grains), but it doesn’t say if that’s for a round with a steel case, or brass.
