I have a bunch of different 7.62x54R ammo, most of which I can identity by head stamp. One has been eluding me for a while. And since there’s milsurp ammo thread going, I thought I’d chuck this here and see if anyone can help.
Already looked through: http://www.7.62x54r.net/MosinID/MosinAmmoID.htm - no luck.
I am somewhat sure the bottom part of the stamp is “53.11” - probably date? But the top part I am missing, which is probably more important.
What throws me, is the first character, that looks like a capital letter “L”, but with extended bottom part that underlines the rest of the writing.
