    Download on Identifying Foreign Mil. Surp. Ammo

    I was not sure if I should post this here on in rifle/shotgun sub forum.

    Anyhow this is a declassified Defense Intelligence Agency PDF document that has the common markings of cartridge, can and case, for pretty much all countries of origin. Very handy for identifying that spam can or crate of military surplus ammo.

    Maybe made a sticky, not sure how valuable this would be for our members.

    Excellent reference, here is another that has actual pictures of headstamps.
