    Default 7.65 x 54 ammo

    What is this for? My wife thought she was doing me a favor (bless her pointed little head) buying me this stuff, but I was after 7.62 x 54R. What do I have 440 rounds of and what does it fit?

    Aregntine Mauser is what it sounds like. Anything else on the case head?

    "440" sounds like 7.62x54R package, one full ComBlock tin.

    Got any pics..?? That would help us a lot in determining exactly what you've got.

    But if it's 7.65x53 then it's Argie Mauser ammo as previously mentioned.There is also a rimmed version of the 7.65x53mm called the 7.65x53R, designed for use in break-open rifles. I've never heard of 7.65x54 anything, so I have no clue what that could be.

    If it turns out to be 440 rds of the argi 7.65x53 I'm sure you could re sell that and get 880 rds of 7.62x54r very easily.

    The Argentine round has gone by both 7.65x54 and 7.65x53 even by the Argentines themselves...

    I'll take a better look at the can again when I get home. It's awfully faded and scratched up. I may have read it wrong. Definitely not 7.62 X 54R.

    At 440 rounds it should be 7.62x54R.

    Could be, I've just never seen it sold that way.

    Again, some pics will help confirm it. We shall see.

    Never seen the Argentine round in what I would call a "can".... A 1500rd wooden crate is their standard,
    .

    Ditto. Then again I never owned a rifle in this caliber so I was little reluctant to say sealed metal cans didn't exist. Most of the stuff I've seen was as you said, wooden crates, with 15 rd. cardboard boxes IIRC.
