Venezuelan 12.7x99


#1

Here is a 12.7x99 headstamped CAVIM 09 which was apparently made in China in 2009 for CAVIM of Venezuela.


#2

I have the CAVIM headstamp on 7x57, 7.62x51 and 38 Special. Does CAVIM themselves make any of these calibres or are they all outsourced?

Will, all those calibers have been made by CAVIM but information about their recent production is hard to come by.

Since last year several different 9 mm Parabellum cartridges are being locally manufactured with coded headstamps for military and police contracts.
