  1. ok so i ordered 1000 rounds .308 wolf WIN and only 500 WOLF came and the other 500 came in battle packs and they say on them:

    AB 22
    200 PATRONE,
    7,62 MMx51, DM111,
    WEICHKERN
    LOS DAG93MO416

    the bullets themselves are like silver (im not sure if you can tell in the pics) and the primers are outlined with green and they seem to have 3 small crimps that keep the primer in. are these re-lode able? why are they silver? whats with the green outline on the primer?

    The green outline might just be a seal.
    Your pic's didnt work.
    Thats all I have.
    Im sure someone more knowledgeable will help you out.

    Without pics I'll take a guess that you have German 7,62 NATO rounds.
    The "silver" bullets are most likely steel jacketed. (check them with a magnet)
    Most likely Berdan primed, so not easily reloaded. And yes, the green lacquer like substance is a primer sealant to help prevent moisture from getting inside the cases.

    German DAG is good stuff, but is magnetic and Berdan primed. Much better than Wolf. Actual NATO issued ammo.

    The German 7.62x51 is non-corr, but the Czech IS corr.

    The bullets are Cupro-Nickle jacketed and not steel. They will be slightly attracted to a magnet. They will not harm your bore. DAG is good quality banging ammo, better than Wolf for sure.
