Cartridge ID help


#1

A cartridge case…Russian or Lebel…?!?

The headstamp is…almost unreadable…;-(

I would say…

  • 12 o’clock : 38
  • 3 o’clock : nothing
  • 6 o’clock : 38
  • 9 o’clock : nothing

Russian, most likely headstamp “ЗВ 38” that is, the “plant named after Volodarsky”, the city of Ulyanovsk, in 1938.

Thank you for informations (now I know something new) !

I don’t know if there is…3B…BUT, anyway, it’s a russian (soviet) cartridge case (which caliber…?) . I will try a better photo, maybe with a magnifying glass…

Just a question…why did the soviets these “poor” headstamps ? ;-/
