At the ECRA meeting at Bisley Yesterday I bought a Turkish 7.65 Mauser round. I know it’s not a British military small arms calibre but I have a drawer examples of military rifle rounds from other places.
The headstamp is virtually the same as the one shown which is from municion.org, but the last character in the date looks like a small zero (Arabic number 5). This would be a date of 1325, which as far as I can tell is 1909 on the Gregorian calendar. The cartridge has a pointed CN FMJ bullet.
What do the symbols at 12 O’Clock and 3 O’Clock mean?
Thanks for any info.
