    I opened a can of 5.45x39 ammo and found two small pieces of paper inside. I believe this is Russian ammo. They look like those "inspected by #" that you find in clothing and other products.

    One says 1"‰"HR48 No. 6.
    The other says I8:"*R4P" No. 67. (I'm not too sure about the third letter, but i cannot find a better match.)

    Both these words fail to translate on two online Russian-English translators. So now i'm really curious. Is this Russian? What do they mean? Why don't they translate?

    Can anyone help?

    Wow, the original font was not carried over.

    Anyway, here is a scan of the two labels.
    Can anyone translate?

    Looks like the 1st one, "Ukladchitsa," means packer (or, more properly, "stacker").

    The second, "Zakatchik," seems to mean "canner" or "sealer."

    Thanks for the info. I guess it makes sense in a sealed tin of ammo.

    I couldn't get any of the online translators to give me even a hint.

    Me neither... I had to use Google and then make some inferences from what I found.

    Now that I think about it, it may well be Bulgarian ammo. Are you sure it's Russian?

    Well, it was a sealed tin of 5.45x39 that is sold everywhere as Russian.

    I wouldn't know one language written in Cyrillic characters from another.
