I believe i bought this around the fall of 2009, which is when I bought my Russian capture K98k. This ammo was sold to me as Yugo surplus. I completely forgot about it as the years went by… It ended up in the bottom of my ammo locker, where what little 7.92 ammo I have is. I decided I wanted to shoot my K98k over the weekend, for the first time!!! Hence why I finally opened the ammo up. I haven’t pulled a bullet, weighed powder, or velocity tested, but all can be done if anyone want to know that information. I think this is being sold on GunBroker at the moment… Also I believe the boxes are German?Head stamp reads * - 10 48 PS… That’s… star, dash, 10, 48, PS. Four things surprised me…
- It’s not yugo but Czech (I think.)
- Stripper clips on ammo are German (dou 44 bright shiny silver color.)
- Ammo was made in 1948… Pretty old.
- 100% of them fired.
After doing research online I think it’s of Czech origin. Maybe the German stripper clips were left over as I think dou 44 was a factory code for Czech republic. Pics to come.
