Hi to all,
I have a couple of dumb questions for you,I hope you dont mind.
First is about this 7.62x54R dummy, headstamped 17 48, plain wood bullet and the primer socket seems to be filled with a type of ‘rubber’ which is very deteriorated. So my first dumb question is is this Russian manufactured or a case of another country using Russian cases?
On to my second dumb question re German manufactured Czech ZB vz 60 ammunition (better known to most as 15mm Besa)…it’s well know that when Germany ‘took over’ BRNO that they used modified 151/15 projectiles in cases that were shortened from 104mm to 101mm to accommodate the longer 151/15 projectiles so that they would still chamber in the gun.
Now for the dumb question…with the German manufactured rounds using the ‘norm’ projectiles, ie same(ish) as the Czech and English projectiles, did they use the 104mm case length? so are there two German manufactured,or rather manufactured under German occupation, case lengths?
All the best
