9mm Largo "S 9 61"


#1

Can somebody help id this headstamp.


#2

It is a 9mm Largo round from Seville, Spain (S 9 61).

Jon’s ID is absolutely correct on this. This is a round I have studied carefully, for a book I wrote on 9 x 23mm cartridges. Spanish headstamps will, on occasion, drive you insane. I had one in my collection for years thinking is was Arabic, probably Turkish and possibly 9mm Steyr, until one day it just jumped out and hit me between the eyes that is was a case of a very badly stamped Spanish headstamp.

Can you tell me something more about the book you wrote on 9 x 23 mm ammo? Is it still available?
