I would like to know what cartridges are produced by Norinco for the civilian market,both rifle and pistol ammunition
Here you have some pictures of other boxes made by norinco.However in their website the only cartridges listed are 7,62 x 51, 9 mm Para and 9 Makarov
The 7.62 was sold in UK for a while and we bought quite a lot because it was so cheap. I was pleasantly suprised. Not match grade by any means but acceptable surplus quality.
The steel cases were a bit hard to eject, OK for our bolt action rifles but not for a semi auto.
I only saw 7.62 I don’t think I saw any other calibre and the boxes were green if I remember.
There is also yellow-box Norinco in 7.62x25 Tokarev.
I do not have the box or the cartridge any more !

Sorry,but what is the " 40 HP"?
How has this difference been marked or described?
“M51 7.62x25mm steel core cartridge
M51 7.62x25mm ball cartridge”
Each listing has its own entry, 40HP just seems to be Hollow Point.
No information is given on M51 variations, my assumption would be lead ball, and steel cored variations, but thats only a guess.
We have seen, and continue to see alot of Norinco ammunition and guns arriving in Canada.
