According to this page...

Its from North Korea. See the headstamp thread also.

nevermind, i was able to get there through link in c&r forum. much appericiated. anyone know anything else about this ammo?

This was being widely sold about a year ago from most of the reliable sources as coming from Portugal.
Could not the 95 be an indication of the year, as it is for many other ammos?

i assume that 95 is the year and that its std. 123 gr. i wonder if its boxer or berden, corrosive or not, and anything else good/bad about it?

Berdan. Average accuracy, not bad, not great. Non corrosive. 1 dud out of 200 rounds fired so far. More muzzle flash than Wolf and Golden Tiger. I bought a couple of cases, as I thought the battle pack packaging might come in handy.
