Untill today , I had never seen or heard of a "BlackHills " box of 7.62 X 39 mm. ammunition.
The rds.(20) were 123 gr. Blackhills SP, loaded on Winchester Brs.The
projectile is a typical ? “Blackhills” SP. with six(6) serrates on jacket directly below the exposed SP.
End flap marked: RPR(formed by a Series of dots) over this in heavy bold print the number 95; the whole surronded by the numbers 1 thru 12 with the exception of the number 8(There is no 8)
Does this perhaps indicate Aug. 1995 as date of mfg.?
I know Blackhills loads about every Cal. there is,but this the first I’ve seen or heard of in 7.62 x 39,The box is worn and faded,and looks to be old.
As a note this is my 185 different marked 7.62 x 39 box.
