7.7x58 Japanese Navy--No Headstamp


#1

I have a 7.92x57 Mauser with no headstamp.(EDIT: THIS TURNED OUT TO BE A 7.7 x 58 JAPANESE NAVY ROUND) It is a s.S. style bullet, GM, not magnetic. Neck has 3-segmemted bullet crimp. Primer is a large rounded brass Berdan type and is ring crimped. At first I thought it was a Japanese 7.92, but it has no casemouth or primer annulus colors.
Cartridge weight is 389.6 gr.

I have one no h.s. 7,92x57 found near Rome in a WWII Whermacht camp. The case is brass made, with 3 very light top crimp. Primer is with a well marked black annulus. Bullet is a very damaged SME type. It was togheter with a great number of german ammo of various calibers
