some time ago, i bought a case of this ammunition and now i have forgotten where it came from and whether it is corrosive. can someone help? the case is made of wood painted blue and has wooden carrying handles on the sides. the markings are as shown below.

side 1: 7.62mm <ZAK> (T) 26-12
Model 53,, (510) 87-3
B1 - 3/123/860-2 COPE 880

side 2: 7.62 Model 53
YETEM PER PUSHKE E D.P
PESHKA BRUTO 28kg

i would like to know:

1. country of origin
2. corrosive nature
3. bullet weight and construction
4. as much interpretation of the markings as anyone knows.

Any idea what the cartridge headstamp is? That would help to id the maker . Based on the data given ( and the fact that I only read english )I would guess at maybe Yugoslavian manufacture dated the third month of 1987 - as per line 2 of the first side of the box. Production codes for internal factory use make up some of the rest of the print on that side , the writting on the second side defeats me totally .
Hard to say whether the ammo is loaded with corrosive components .
Hope thats some help .

The ammo is Albanian. Info can be found on a few pages I did for Tuco: http://www.mosin-nagant.net/a2bania.htm
Steel core and corrosive so clean the rifle well when you are finished shooting.
