A buddy of mine gave me a big bag of ammo but I have no idea what it is. I couldn't get a very good pic of the head-stamp but it has a star on either side of the primer and has the numbers 12 and 54 opposite of each other. The bullet is about a 30 cal but not for sure because my caliper is broken. Thanks.

Looks like 8mm Mauser.

Yes, it's 7.92(8mm)x57 Mauser ammo, made in Yugoslavia in 1954.

They make a nice boom, too. Btw, good choice in beer... :)
