7.65 x 53 US or Argentine

What is the correct way to ID this round…assumed it a

Hi Pepper,

          I have never seen an example here in Argentina or even heard of this tracer variation from a local source. The argentine navy infantry did use REM-UMC "S" Ball rounds, but no tracers. As I remember it was used by Peru, but I'll check my files.

I have two…and may ask Paul Smith to section one. I dug deeper in to my notes and the round came to me (years ago from the esteemed military collector in the Arizona desert)…and I note it is referenced in Gene Scranton’s supplements on color markings (#259)…so I think I have it tagged (must be a good round !)


(I have more Argentine rounds to ask about in the future!)
