WW1 7.62x54r AP?


#1

Hi everyone,

Recently picked these 5 rounds up together with the DM stripper clip for 9Eur. Does anyone have more information on them? Are these rare? Do you think it was a good deal? Thank you.


#2

Sorry didn’t mean to put that .303 British in there!!


#3

Well done, definately worth the expense!

When you pull the bullets you may check the bases for the exact model then.


#4

Thank you, I don’t really want to pull the bullets but here’s what they should look like:


#5

There is also “open base” types. Hence my remark.


#6

I wasn’t aware that there were two models of bullet. Does anybody have a drawing or sectioned photograph of these AP bullets?


#7

To me the primers don’t look like just snapped. Are you sure the bullets belong to those cases?

Here are better pictures. All of them have crimping except 1 that is marked П 16 (I don’t think that they used crimping on regular L ball bullets?). The cartridges are in the same order in both pictures.

Blimey Brian! How ever do you manage to keep finding these useful links?

The charger is scarce too … it’s a bit corroded but First War, marked examples are hard to find in any condition, definitely a good find.
