7,62x51 (otherwise unmarked) headstamp - Russian?



Well, I may be wrong, but this cartridge looks like one of he first 7,62x51 made in ex-USSR…

The bullet, too, reminds the soft-point ones seen on 7,62x54R Mosin-Nagant “hunting cartridges”.
I will be waitng for your advices with great interest…Maybe Yuri will know?



I agree with you, there are also steel cases marked this way with the same projectile.
