If this stuff was not meant to end up in Israel then why are the tins themselves marked on the sides with the Hebrew? i can see the stencil on the wooden case, But… The wooden crates are soviet style with the hinges and latch closure, with the wire seals on each latch, which have the crushed lead ball seals on the wire security seals, and these security seals contain the Bulgarian double circle ((10)) logo embossed into them with whatever tool they use to crush the lead ball which secures the wire security seal in place on the latches. the wire must be removed to open the latch. I have a few cases of this stuff that i bought recently, and it came still fully sealed in the wooden crates with untouched Bulgarian ((10)) seals on the wires, with the Hebrew markings on the tins secured inside. To me this means that the hebrew markings were applied before the wooden crates left the arsenal 10 factory in Bulgaria. basically stating arsenal Bulgaria knew they were going to Israel before they even left the factory. i don’t see them marking them at the factory with the Hebrew lot markings and info if it was a contract for anyone else but Israel.
Also, why the lead core projectile which costs more in materials if they are for a market that does not prohibit steel cored m43 projectiles? The Bulgarians have only ever made these projectiles one other time as far as i know and that was per a contract specification for B-West importer that took one 40 foot shipping container of the stuff into the states maybe fifteen or so years ago. M43 is what the Bulgarian lines are set up to produce and it is a savings in material costs of lead not to mention standard for what they have always produced in this caliber. I don’t see them doing the lead core stuff for military contracts, but somone correct me if im wrong. I don’t know if Israel or wherever they were ordered by prohibits m43 projectiles in this caliber with the steel core, and i doubt they were meant for American markets. someone correct me if im wrong about this lead core flat base projo business as it is all coming from simple suspicion not facts like the other stuff
They come sealed up like this, with the security seal, with the Hebrew already on the tins that are inside. No signs of tampering with the wood crates to get at the tins inside at all.
