    What do these markings on Russia 7.62x39 crates mean?

    I bought four 1400rd crates of Russian 7.62x39 FMJ. Three have a marking on the right side of M43-18. One has a M41-18 marking. Does anyone know what these mean and why they're different?

    It means they're Russian.

    патроны means Cartridges
    охотнйцьй means Hunting
    the rest is caliber, number of rounds and cartridge type M43

    So why does one crate say M41? I'm assuming that the "-18" means made in 2018.

    I don't think I've ever seen Russian brass to be honest. Then again, I always buy steel for AK. That was one of its advantage points for me, the ammo is cheaper than 556 lmao.

    Very limited brass cased Russian 7.72x39 in the early 1950's. All steel cased ammunition after that..
