It 7.62x54R. Brassed cased with a copper colored bullet. Head is stamped 1976 and nny. Red sealant on the primer. I purchased them from SG. Came 15 to a carboard box.

I would like to know if its corrosive and how accurate and if it has been know to cause any problems.

I believe its Yugoslavian and corrosive.

sounds like albanian. ALL of the surplus 54r is corrosive. the albanian is fairly accurate in most rifles.

It's not Albanian, the Albanian has a 2 digit year stamped on the rim and exactly oposite it a 3. Also, it comes wraped in paper bundles of 20 with a twine with a colored strand in it holding everything wrapped.

Yup looks like YUGO stuff. Thats PPU in cyrillic I guess. Its berden primed so its corrosive but nice brass cartridges. Not that the PSL would care.
