German looking box 7,62x54R

Found this box with 20 rounds of 7.62 x 54R made by plant 188 in 1982.
I always tough they only made steel cases.
The box has German writing on it. Could at be a kind of export to the former DDR.


I love the box.

looks like a match round. “Extra” is the brand name. I think I have seen these boxes packed in the normal Soviet style “spam cans” with German language markings. Yes, export to the former DDR.
