Hey guys. I recently acquired these old packaged boxes of 7.62x54r. I've never seen anything like them and am wondering if any of you know anything about them.

    Milsurp you might get lucky and end up with a few tracer rounds here and there. A buddy of mine scored a box or two of tracer in the case

    Save the clips after you strip the rounds off. You can resale those for a little profit.

    That's what the military packages their ammunition in for storage.

    I bought a bunch of 1946 manufactured 7.62x54r packaged just like that. Most inaccurate and dirty ammo I've ever shot, but the stripper clips are the best you're going to find for a Mosin.

    Edit: Bought then for what I thought was expensive for the time, like $75 for 300 rounds. They came in a lead sealed sheet metal box, older design than the spam cans I was familiar with. It was a bitch to get open.

    As the title says, they're old boxed packages of 15 rounds each, in stripper clips. I have around 15 of them. Most of the twine on them is still tied.

    Resell them. Some high-roller collectors will pay big bucks for them, especially the rare ammo.

    This is how I got some a couple of years ago in a lead box from AIM surplus. They were TULA I believe and did come in the cardboard and string. It had to be opened like a giant tin of sardines.

    My Bulgarian rounds with stripper clips came packaged in those cardboard boxes with twine. I'm betting on that.
