Default What kind of ammo is this

I took a picture of the can. Got them cheap, but not sure if it is 7.69 x ?? Is it 700 rounds? Hope it's not a can full of sand

Thanks

The "43" would indicate that they are M43 rounds. Should be 7.62x39mm FMJ

They are probably AK rounds...7.62 x 39. 7.62 x 54r is usually packaged in counts of 440.

Key to deciphering a spam can...

Thanks! I don't want to open it yet and wasn't sure which one it would be.

Yeah, as far as everything I've seen, if it says 700 on it, it's ak ammo.
