Title says it. Case is slightly shorter then 7,62x54R. Found it at the range, just wondering what it is.

Looks rimless, right?

7.62MM = 7.62x51 NATO = .308 Win (More or less.)

89 = year made

nny (Or as close as I can get to the actual Cyrillic characters without a lot of fooling around with my computer.)
= headstamp of the Yugoslavian maker of ammunition sold here at the time by Hansen.

Yep, Yugoslav; before they were picked up by Hansen, that ammo was sold under the "Privi Partizan" brand.

Coo, thanks! I figured it was .308, but the manufacturer was eluding me. Didn;t think that the com-block made NATO ammo, but I guess I learn something every day.

The Cyrillic "nn" = Roman "PP" I don't recall off the top of my head what the "y" is. Been too long since I played around with Russian.

There isn't a true direct "transliteration" of Latin/English to Cyrillic, but this should help a bit.

I have cases with this headstamp in .45 ACP and .30 Carbine.
