    early 7,62mm cartridges from 1946 to 1950

    Some examples showing the evolution of the 7,62mm cartridge case starting with the 300 Savage in 1945-46. All these are headstamped F A

    as only about 25% of my photos will download here are the headstamps: left F A 46 with 0 on primer, F A 48, F A 49 and F A 50

      they started with FA 45 which was a 300 Savage case and made them for all the years, I am missing the 1947 and traded the F A 45 years ago.

      photo shows 7,62mm duplex green tip with two 83 gr bullets (used in Viet Nam, 7,62mm AP LC 54. 22 cal/7,62mm WCC 58 and aluminum case ball LC 56 case

      the second photo shows the white tip low recoil 7,62mm. first they used one of the 83 grain bullets from the green tip duplex rounds, than changed over to a 90 grain steel bullet which was the XM256 white tip low recoil cartridge for the M14. This was design for the small stature soldiers using the M14 rifle. A special skeleton type of butt stock with pistol grip on a M14 stock
