I found some remnants of lots that I purchased years ago and can't remember for certain what it is:

I bought a couple of cans of this this about 15 years ago and have forgotten where it came from. Nickel wash bullet, the headstamp marked: "51- /circle with arrow coming out of the top/ - /star of david/ - 1" .... // denotes mark. I just found about 100 more rounds stashed away I'd forgotten about.

If I remember right, the "L - 9x19 - Y - 93" was Chinese? I found a couple hundred rounds of this mixed in with the above.

I was just curious

The "51" ammo is Czech military surplus.
The "LY" is Chinese commercial ammo.

If that's the Czech 9mm that Interarms boxed up in the late 1960's-mid70s it's extremely corrosive . High mercury content in the primers or something . I think it was a green box with a black plastic tray . Hard primers too . Bullets were steel jacketed or steel core . I can't recall exactly .
