  • Question......7.62-59

    Got a can labeled 7.62-59. I'm sure I ordered 7.62x54R as I've never seen a -59.........what gives? Thanks!

    Probably date of manufacture.

Mildly corrosive, non-reloadable. 20 rds. per box. 780 rounds come in a sealed steel case inside a wooden crate. Ammo boxes may be incorrectly stamped 7.62 x 59R.

        I have a couple cans of the Czech ammo, accurate, but the lacquer melts easily in a hot breach and causes jamming.
