    Question 7.92x57mm Mauser - BPD 953 Info Required

    Hi all,
    I’ve just picked up a 5 round charger clip of 7.92x57mm Mauser ammunition for my collection and was wondering if anybody could help me identify these rounds and give me the manufacturer & usage?
    I’ve attached some pictures of the: primer + headstamp, head / projectile & full round.

    Round
    Case: Brass
    Head: Green Tip, Copper Jacket with Steel Core
    Headstamp: BPD 953

    Cheers

    Italian 7,92x57 mauser round
    BDP = Brombini Parodi Delfino (manufacturer)
    953 = 1953.

    Thanks blackwatch,
    As the round is Italian I presume the projectile is Armour Piercing.
    Cheers

    This is an armour piercing round, probably made on contract for Egypt.

    They also loaded Ball, tracer and dummy.
