Czech 7.62 x 39mm


#1

Here are three Czech 7.62 x 39mm cartridges with a Reference round on the left and a Proof round on the right…but what is the black-tipped round in the middle? The headstamp is ‘bxn 94’.


#2

Any holes in the side? If you search, I posted about a similar round a couple of years ago.


#3

I searched and couldn’t find anything, perhaps I didn’t post this before. Here are pics of the round I mentioned:





#4

The black tip is a “weapon proof” while the one with the longer projectile is a “barrel proof” (used when the barrel is still in unfinished condition and not installed in the weapon).


#5

Any thoughts on the taped hole in my loaded case?


#6

Thank you both. Jon, there are no holes in the case. EOD, any ideas as to the designation of the ‘weapon proof’ round? I believe the heavy-bulleted ‘barrel proof’ round is designated 7.62mm Tormentačni.

Jim, I wish I knew the Czech designation. I can’t find it in regular Czechoslovak military documents as it was not meant to be used by regular military. I know only the Russian designations for these.


#8

I appreciate your efforts anyway. Thanks EOD.
