I picked up a quantity of soft point 7.65, made in Argentina, inspection tag has it dated 1965.
Anyone have any experience with this type, corrosive, hang fire duds??
Thank

I have some of the same stuff I have had for years but have never shot any of it.

It is labeled “NonCorrosive” in Spanish and tested as such for me. Shot well until I ran out 15 years ago. Storage conditions can vary greatly over 55 years so no guarantee on your batch. But your batch looks great!

Have about 6-8 boxes of this soft point ammo. Cases are marked 7.65x54 none of them will allow the bolt to be fully closed on my 1891 Argentine mauser. Original cartridge designation is 7.65x53mm. Tried it in about three 1891 Argentine mausers I own. No go. Some where the Santa Fe arsenal screwed up with this ammo. Should have a "SF" as part of the headstamp. Unless they changed the chambering so as to allow the use of these sporting cartridges. Frank

It means “claim”...in case of a claim (problem)include this card.
