        I just found out I bought 360 rounds of Port from a guy for $120 shipped cause he thought it was SA. When I opened it I said to myself "self, FNM is Port me thinks". I just verified it here!!! He really pushed the sale too, cause I don't particularly like SA! Port and Hirt for me! [dummy]

            PMJ Headstamp

            That's a real puzzle to me, too. I even checked a South American site--www.municion.org/762x51-- and they didnt have it either. I bought some ammo from Georgia Arms, and about 1/3 of the 200 rounds was PMJ. HMMM

                  I have some ammo I bought about 20 years ago. The headstamp says K F 77 7.62A
                  I was wondering where it was from, if anybody knew, and if it was corrosive. If I recall correctly, it was corrosive, as, it caused the gas tube on the L1A1 I had at the time to turn greenish/turquoise in color around the vent, if this is the same ammo I'm thinking of. I've had several different surplus ammunitions over the years, it's easy to get them confused, especially the ones that I have only 50 or so rounds of left. Any help would be appreciated.

                      Thanks for the reference link. This is probably corrosive, as it comes from India and it's 1977 vintage. Thanks again.

                        thanks.

                        Thanks, i just used this to id the headstamps from my 2k rounds of surplus .45, does anyone know whats corrosive and whats not, all the rounds appear to be from the mid to late 80's, with about 30% of it being Russian (Tula).
