  • 7,62x51

    This is maybe a first year production of 7, 62x51 tracer ammunition, before own production in country. The box contains 15pcs and is produced by FN, Belgium in the early 60th.

    This box of 7,62x51 tracers comes from Raufoss, Norway and is manufactured in 1968. The year of production must be considered quite early as the AK4 were introduced in 1963.

    This package is produced by factory 586, that is Hirtenberger in Austria and they are manufactured in 1971.

    This box of ammunition is intended for the Pvpj 1110 (Pansarvärnspjäs 1110) (90 mm recoiless Gun), were a spotter rifle in 7,62x51 is mounted in parallel with the main guns barrel. The mechanics of the spotter rifle is originating from the Ag m/42B rifle, so suitable to be used with a stripper clip. The box is not labeled as with stripper clip, only the plastic container holding the boxes is correctly labeled. This has kept the box quite unknown actually, as it is difficult to identify it without opening the box.
    This ammunition is manufactured by Hirtenberger, Austria in 1971.
    The stripper clip in use for the 7,62x51 ammunition is the same as for the 6,5x55 ammunition.

    This is one of two labels I found for the Swedish produced boxes of tracers. This box is manufactured by the Karlsborg factory in 1973.

    This is the second type of locally produced tracer ammunition. The difference is within the image of the projectile. This box is produced by the Karlsborg factory in 1973.
