I will withhold where and when I found these bullets until they are ID'ed correctly.
First, you must measure their diameter with a dial caliper.
Never saw anything like it. Might be part of some kind of military arm.
7.62 x 54r
7.62 x 63
I'm not sure they are necessarily military.
Measure them just behind the Ogive, where they become cylindrical.
Colored tips would be revealing. They seem not to be black (armor-piercing), certainly not red or orange (tracer).
I collected them from the desert shooting range Ft Bliss when I was 8 and my father was on special assignment at the missile range. WW 2 50 cal machine gun practice bullets. I once had a 5 gal bucket of them. I was with the Commander's kids and all the armed guards that drove the perimeter in jeeps looked out for us. They called us the little desert rats.
