I asked a buddy of mine to find me some ammo for my STG44, and some months later he rocked up with 8 cases of East German 7.92 x 33 Kurz.
A bit more that I will ever shoot, as I have about 17,000rds!!
It’s in boxes of 15, in cases of 2400rds, all 1959 dated.
My questions are…
The boxes refer to it as 7.92mm-Patr. Kz43, I believed that Kz43 was the Wehrmacht designation carried over, but in a topic on this forum I see East German 7.62 x 39 with Kz43 on it. so what does it mean?
The label on the inside of the cases have a lot of codes, can anybody decipher them?
