    Agree with Gunni, Mauser round could be Czech and the other is a .50 spotting round.

    The 'Mauser' 7.92x57mm is Yugoslavian, 11 denotes the factory code and the .50" spotting round is a dummy/drill round

    On my screen the Kynoch .50 BAT round looks like it has the matt plating on the case head. If that is so it has been polished to remove the plating from the body of the case.

    Regards

    Hi TonyE,
    didn't the matt plate and chromed drill rounds have flutes on the case body?

    Cheers
    Tony

    OK smartypants, of course it did. I can't help being an idiot, I'm old!

    (I knew there was something not quite right when I typed that...duh!)

    Cheers

    You and me both,I nearly id'd the 7.92 as Bulgarian as it looks like a steel case in the headstamp photo!,but you are right it does look like plating in the headstamp of the BAT round,me thinks because of the high polish of the round could be 'brasso' residue

    Cheers
    Tony

    HI, cheers for the id's. both rounds have been polished up, but the headstamp and cases are the same they just look darker in the pics. it always amazes me the vast knowledgebase avialable on this website.

    SMLE i love the quote one your sig, "if you want peace, prepare for war".

    Thanks
