I'm not going to fire a round of this ammo until I hear from the experts.I bought a case of Czech ammo that has a red stripe on the left top and the left front of the wood case. Head stamped bxn over 59, silver tip. On the inside of the tin, was an envelope with a large B-1 in red writen by hand on the outside of the envelope. In the envelope was a typed form. It gives the caliber, number of rounds etc. Below that, writen by hand in red was a word that looks like Kaukolu. Then it looks like it was signed. The date is 13.5.1983
To me, red means stop or danger. Thanks in advance for help.

I'd go by the tip color as definative.. would it be possible for you to post a picture of the box and the box label? The silver tip color just indicates a steel core ball load. Where did you find it?

I tried to post pictures, but can't get the hang of it. It looks just like the other silver tip Chez that I have seen. Comes in a grey-green box with the silver stripe on the box. I got the ammo at a local dealer here in LA(Lower Alabama)

Sounds like regular czech ammo to me. Who knows who painted a red strip on the box as far as the red writing on the paper inside the box. Most of the inspection sheets I have seen are signed in red for some reason.

On the outside of the wood case is a large white P-10. Also a silver stripe with a red 1 stencled over the silver stripe. Also HERM. in black, handwritten.
Over the red stripe is a stamped- cz/VTU-1MET 804?. Can't make out the last number.

Thanks to all for your input. I might just have to try firing one of those rounds. I might use the tire and string:)
