7.62x39 headstamp guide?
I picked up a pile of mixed Russian, Egypt and other mfgs. Is there a good site that helps identify these/

Cincinnati Kid ammo, right?
I got some too. I had a blast going through it, figuring out the cool old Russian headstamps.
Here's a good link: http://www.ak-47.net/ammo/headstamps.html
BTW, I picked out about 30 of the ugliest rounds and took them to the range. Bear in mind that these were the worst of the batch. I had four that didn't go off at all, a couple hangfires, and the rest worked great.
Some have a little rust on the cases. Question for the experts: can this rust damage the chamber in any way (SKS chrome chamber)? What about a little rust on the bullet?
I wish I had the money to grab some of the 7.62x45mm ammo he has on the trader right now.
