Yugoslav 7.62x39 M59 iron core


#1

Yugoslavia made initially the 7.62x39 cartridge as a M59 load which basically was a direct copy of the Soviet “PS” iron core projectile.
The well known lead core M67 projectile came later then (for a reason interesting to know).

I just been told from a Friend in Serbia that the M59 was made only by Igman Konjic (BiH today).

Question:
Did ever anybody see a respective box label of any Yugoslav M59?

Alex, I have this b/w picture of a M59 label. Cartridges inside are headstamped ИК 1967 (brass case, red primer sealant) and chargers are phosphated steel without markings. Regards, Fede.
