    Ummm ok. I suppose they are made to dispatch tiny tanks on tiny battlefields. C'mon DC, I know you can help me solve this mystery!

    Do you have those cartridges in your possession? What does the headstamp say?

    I think the country of origin might be Israel.

    The bullet looks like an odd semi-wadcutter type, maybe for target use?

    Does JPFO have a board? Someone over there can probably help you out... but I think we have a few Hebrew-speaking people here. They might be able to help.

    Or there is another way... could be more fun that way

    Looks to me like ammo for range time, like for qualifying with weapons, just a shot in the dark though.

    The numbers are 5.56, that part is not Hebrew letters. I assume it's a box of 5.56 ammo, Israeli made. What there used for no clue.

    You're right. The OP deleted his image for some reason. Maybe his question was answered, I don't know.

    Anyway, the thread is
