Would anyone be able to help me identify this 7.62x39 ammo? Who and where and when manufactured? Is this copper washed steel case or brass? Corrosive or not? Thanks.
A.R.E. in the headlamp stands for Arab Republic of Egypt. Manufacturer there was Factory 27 located at Shoubra. The boxes those cartridges came in were 50 rd boxes with a label in English. So apparently they were destined for an English speaking market/user.
And they are brass cased.
