Soviet 7.62x54r 7n1 markings


#1

Does anyone know why the Soviet made 7.62x54r 7n1 “sniper” load has no identification markings at all except for the packaging? Once outside of it’s packaging, you can not tell a 7n1 from a standard LPS ball cartridge (later production after the silver tip color code was deleted). Seems that this was done on purpose for some reason, but why?
