Lugansk 7.62x54R headstamp variation?


#1

Are these two different headstamps or it is very late and I am seeing things?


#2

You often see this on the “same” headstamp. A factory could get through several headstamp bunters in one production run. These bunters were originally hand mde, so there was obviously some variation.


#3

They would probably have more than one headstamp bunter in use at any one time. Each machine could have a slightly differing bunter.
