Korean 7.62

7002 17
Found some 7.62 bass at the range that was marked PS 82. This was the first time I have seen Korean 7.62 brass. Did I miss the boat on this ammo? The rangemaster says it is everywhere right now. Who has it? Boxer and N/C, and not Indian. I want some.

milton,

I have been review the cost of sixteen ammo surplus suppliers weekly for the last 7 weeks on the Internet and I have not found one source of 7.62x51 Korean anywhere as well reading the Shotguns news weekly or at the last four Gun Shows here. I have found eight dealers selling Korean 30.06 and M1 carbine ammo. Sorry, good luck, someone should be by here soon to help you out with your question.

:? milton ! Are you sure It's Korean? I have seen some Spanish with a PS Headstamp! Czechoslovakia also used the PS Headstamp like I stated before "I know of no Korean Surp. 7.62X51" :eek:

Giong by the fact that it is boxer primed, and the headstampings look identical to the Korean 30-06, and the primer crimp style and sealant color match the Korean 30-06 color. I am 99.44% sure it is Korean 7.62x51.

XXIV-picture as follows:

1 o'clock S
7 o'clock 8
5 o'clock 2

NOT 30-06

I own/shoot 9 7.62/308 rifles and 19 30-06 rifles. I think I can tell the difference.

I just want to know if this ammo is available, or is it from an older importation.

milton,

As I said at the very beginning of this thread, I review 16 internet site each week, that are the so-called large surplus ammo dealers. I have not come across any 7.62 with PS on the headstamp. I can only guess that Korean may have manufactured some back in the 80's. I have not found any data supporting that Korea ever manufactured 7.62. Not to say they didn't. Good luck Sir :D . Oh by the way, you sure must have a nice collection of rifles......

KOREAN

I posted something a while back about anybody hearing about Korean .308 but to no avail. The boxes mine came in were tan and had PMC marked on the box, as well as made or manufactured in Korea. Think maybe we made it and sent it over there????

:D like i said. some early PMC was marked ps for pong san metal works. It was 100 percent military and does pop up in PMC boxes. So Milton is right. good job Milton. It is reloadable and exactly like US brass. Ream it and trim to 2.5 inches and shoot it 6 or seven reloads.



oh and Shotgun, thank you for that answer.
