Got some Spam Cans
« on: January 30, 2019, 07:36:38 PM »
Got some Russian spam cans of 54r and 762X39. I paid $150 each. I am not all that sure what each of them are besides the silver stripe 54r one. also I have never seen the LPSZ on a can. I am really curious about the hunting cartridge as well.Any thoughts?

I think the second x54r tin is Hungarian, and the bottom solder sealed tin may be a 300 rd tin.  Been a while since I played ID my can...so memory may be a little off.

I'm sure the x39 is something like Brown Bear or maybe Wolf.. good stuff to tuck up under the stairs......just in case.
I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse......

Leave the gun take the cannoli.

Top to bottom:
Hunting cartridge (in Russian) 7.62x39 hollow point (not really in the expanding sense, more like open tip), white box
Same only with translation to English. They only say "hunting" so they can assert that it's for sporting use
Russian Novosibirsk (188) factory LPS; light ball (147 gr, mild steel core)
Polish LPS
Not sure about the lead sealed galvanized metal can. May be the older Russian on stripper clips in 15 rd boxes
