Hello to everybody, first of all, I think I must introduce myself, my name is Diego, I’m a spanish collector member of AECC (Spanish Association of Collectors of Cartuchería). I’ve read some post of this forum when I have any doubts about new cartridges, and I think is one of the best places to learn a lot about this world. And now is time to participate:
My question is about a South African 7,62x51 (as the tittle saids), headstamp 85 12, brass case and non magnetic hollow point bullet, it looks filled with some white plastic. I have it cassified as M12A2, but I don’t find any abot it and I don´t know anyting about it, the only thing I found was in this web (http://www.cartridgecollector.net/762-x-51-nato -the lower part of the web-), here talks about “safety round”, but it has a base of the case painted red, and mine is not painted. Some body can tell me some aout it? I try to upload some pics.
Best regards and thank so much!
