Hey, Slovaks, there still lives
the Slovak language
As long as our faithful heart
beats for our nation!

That is an excerpt from "Hej, Slované," the national anthem of the nation of Yugoslavia. Outside of a few sentimental old-timers in Eastern Europe, no one’s heart beats faithfully for Yugoslavia any longer. Plenty of people still enjoy its ammunition, though, which is certainly something.

This cartridge is military surplus, intended for Yugo infantrymen’s bolt-action rifles as well as some machine guns. Like most army cartridges it possesses a full metal jacket which prohibits terminal expansion (although its terminal effect would still be nasty). From its box we can tell this round was manufactured in the early ‘50s, but we have not yet discerned whether its bullet contains any steel.

This is a brass cased cartridge, yet its Berdan primer would make it undesirable for handloading under anything but the most drastic circumstances. As it is corrosive, this round will require that you diligently clean your rifle after every shooting session.
