    They are all AP and the modern reloaded AP is done with DEN 42 brass!!!
    The blanks are for grenade launchers ... I think, not just regular ones (Black dot)

    I have not shot any Greek yet, where do you get yours, CMP? I have "supplier" that I got all of these from for about 50cents a round (except the Birthday rounds were all free ) including AP. I will not disclose my secrets lol

    Cool so there around 50 cents a round. I wish I got the US ammo box full of bandoleers before they ran out...

    Not sure on Greek markings, I know generally they ammunition itself has color on the tip of the bullet if it is special, my belted ammo has the black tips mainly worn off for AP, Orange or Red for US means tracer generally and Green is frangible. Sometime newer red tipped is incendiary I think.
    Does your ammo have anything on the tips of the bullets?
    Here is a pic of my AP with black tips

    The loose stuff from the CMP is "normal" aka uncolored tip stuff that ranges in year of manufacture (I've observed 60s-70s mostly...) This stuff in the spam can is new to me... And unopened... So I guess I'll have to wait to find out!
