I mentioned the 7.9 because it relates to the topic of cases of non-German manufacture used to make ammunition in the DDR. Really exactly the same topic as the last several entries on the thread.
You are probably right about the reloading aspect. I am guilty, even though I well know the difference, of thinking of one company’s cases loaded by a different company, especially in another country, as a “reload.” Of course, it is not always the case, although I have a brasss-cased “04” blank loaded by 201 in 7.9 that does look like a reload. None of the 7.62 x 54R rounds in my DDR collection are reloads - the cases were boviusly new, and probably primed at the manufacturing point of the case, rather than by the loading factory, although I am not certain of that. All my other 7.9 blanks from the DDR, in lacquered steel 04 and bxn cases, look like new cases as well.
Got to break myself of the over-use and more important, the incorrect use, of the word reload. Not ithe first time I have rightfully been taken to task for it.
