Randy - your round is ordinary ball. I have the box for it. It is, though, about the most handsome round in 7.65 Long ball rounds.
For information, the only 7.65 Long proof I know is :
brass case, nickel plated brass bullet, all red painted base, hstp : SFM 1949
But perhaps other exist, I don’t know very much about ctges, except shotshells.
OK thanks for the replies Randy
