Question on what this bullet/cartridge is age and country


#1

Hi, I found this bullet in Hungary, can someone identify it for me please, thanks. Looks like 66 and oxn ? possibly a blank? looked on web but im not sure.

Bev,

The " oxn " is possibly " bxn " which stands for Sellier & Bellot, Prague, Czechoslovakia, Factory in Zbrojovka Vlàsim. The “66” is the date of production of the cartridge case i.e. 1966.
Based upon the type of cartridge case rim/head shown in your picture this is probably a 7.62x54mm rimmed cartridge case made of steel.
