    Hello guys

    I hope someone will assist me in identifying these Mauser rounds. I have marked the thread as "Important" because these are ground dug rounds from the Eastern Front and i would like to get a picture of what was going on out there. They are in some way unique because the "PK" round was found in a Lewis machine gun magazine and the Polish round i have not found earlier. Both are from the same general area.

    The rounds were found east of Smolensk and the area/finds tells of heavy and close fighting.
