Stalingrad Ammo Finds


I just got an interesting email from a metal-detector hunter who lives in/near Stalingrad. He described some of his recent ammo finds.

  1. A handful of no headstamp 7.62x25 rounds.
  2. A 6.5 Japanese round, no headstamp, 2x180deg. primer stakes.
  3. And a British .303 round with a J . 16 VII headstamp.
    I thought #2 and #3 were particularly interesting finds for Stalingrad.


Items 2 and 3 are more likely to be associated with the Battle of Tsaritsyn than with Stalingrad, I think. Jack
