It looks more like 6V or bV?

From what I can see in the pic and what I can remember from ctg collecting, this is middle east origin, either Egypt, Iraqi, or Syrian perhaps? I don't have my reference books handy, but this puts you in the ballpark. Probably corrosive, mildly at least, so if you have a large qty on hand and shoot any, be forewarned to clean after shooting. Hope this helps..Tommy.

According to the U.S army referance guide it would be made in Egypt.
