7.62x54R with W 15 Headstamp


#1

Many of you will probably know the answer to this question, but I don’t.

Was the above cartridge with the headstamp W 15 a commercial round made for the US or was it a Winchester contract round made for Russia or other?

Any information would be welcome.

Thankx.
