    Went shooting the other day and found some brass that I can't figure out what it is. Here are some pics.

    Unknown= .308 on left and Unknown on right. (.308 is shorter and skinner)

    Unknown2= Head of the Unknown. Writing on top (10) bottom (54).

    If anyone can identify, it would be appreciated. Thanks!

    That is a Bulgarian 7.62x54r made in 1954. Brass cased 54r and someone left it? tsk!

    I'd be more than happy to take any reloadable ones off your hands!

    Thanks! I would have never guessed that, don't even have a gun that shoots that stuff. I'll have to go back and really comb the place...was raining and didn't really look all that hard. But found 32 pieces.

    I think that stuff is Berdan Primed, you can tell if it has two little holes inside the bottom of the case instead of the centered single hole.
