My dad has a box of what appears to be 7.62x45 ammo (looks to be around 200 rounds in an ammo can). He picked them up a few years back thinking they were 7.62x39 but of course they don't fit in his AK mags. I've never heard of this round and it seems like it's no longer in production. He has no use for them and I have no idea on pricing if he was to sell them. Anybody know about this?
They're steel cased and the headstamp says "ZV" on one side and "79" on the other.

Apparently it's a Czech round, used by the Czechs before they were forced to convert to the standard Warsaw Pact round, the 7.62x39.
The Czech vz. 52 rifle, vz. 52 machine gun, and ZB-530 automatic rifle were all chambered for the 7.62x45, which supposedly had slightly better ballistics than the 7.62x39.

Got a guy at work that got an AK-74 chambered for 7.62x45. Not sure how corrosive it is.
sent from my damned S4!
