A recent post by Lew on Russian 9x19 boxes caused me to check a 9x39 round that I have, as I think I have mistaken its identity.
I thought that the symbol on the headstamp was that of Klimovsk. However, after seeing the crisp headstamps shown in Lew’s post, I don’t believe that the symbol is the same.
Lew gave me this round in October last year and that is when I entered it into my log and searched online for the manufacturer’s details. I cannot recall if I thought this was the same symbol as that shown in the other post, or if I saw an image of the symbol on the 9x39 HS, which was attributed to Klimovsk.
