Steel case 308Win ID


#1

I’m not sure where I got this one, but I do know I don’t know where it is from. Is it a Russian commercial round? It has a copper-washed (or something similar) steel case and the FMJ bullet jacket is magnetic. It has clear primer sealer and black mouth sealer.

Even though there is a factory in Russia using the numbers “61” as the factory designator, I would say that this is a commercial Chinese round from the Chinese Arsenal that uses these numbers.

Wow! Talk about your mental blocks. I couldn’t figure out what the first two characters in the headstamp were. I was thinking of everything else besides 61! Thanks John and EOD
