It's best to post up a couple pics of the cartridge, especially the head stamp.
When guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns.

Is it brass or steel cased? Brass cased could be something on the line of a Hornady A-Max, FXT, or ELD product line. Brass or Steel cased from a military source could possibly be Tracer ammo.
My Avatar is a pic of the real "Ghost" SKS in honor of xxxsks(joe). It is a pic of a fully decked out SKS in Capco hunter's kit. This was mine, the only other pic I had ever seen of one was Joe's.

It'd be interesting to see pics of the ammo and box it was in. How many rds in the box? Pics, pics, pics!
