Bullet question


Recommended Posts

I hope this is the right place for this question. I just picked up a M&P 10. A friend of mine gave me about 200 rounds of what he says is 7.62. It has a head stamp that reads.

LC. 74 and a circle with a cross in it. It looks like a 7.62, but I want to make sure before I shoot them. I would hate to chamber a round that is the wrong caliber. Can some one give me an answer. Thanks.

Some one can correct me if Im wrong but that should mean 1974 Lake city (manufacturer) with a nato headstamp (circle with cross)

Probably old milsurp ammo


It doesn't have a designation on it of what caliber on the packaging?  Buy a box of 308 and compare...

OP, Make sure that NOT  Lake City 1974 30-06 ammo... 


Buy some .308 Win and compare it, or measure the case length, based on the above. 


Shib, that thumb is impressive.  <thumbsup>


We need updates, as it leaves...  <lmao>


I can't tell you how many of those things I've smashed and lost...  :eek:
