7.62x54R AP "17 П"


I got 2 of these from 2 different vendors at the same show as an early AP. Does “П” stand for “Petersburg”. The projectiles are magnetic. How rare are these?



They are found in Ukraine, but not often, in any case, in such a state, from the land usually strongly corroded.


“П” is St. Petersburg, AP bullet construction Kutowog model 1914 … No. 5 in the picture …

Mine is from 1916 :-)
