    Default Russian 9mm ammo? Surely not!!

    I'm hoping someone can help me out here, cause I'm well and truely stumped!!

    I've obtained a few spent cartridges dated 1944, which I beleive to be 9MM, but upon checking the headstamp (3 with a star either side) they appear to be Russian!! How can this be??

    I've took a picture of the cartidge next to a British 9MM. Can anyone clear this up for me?

    Cheers,
    Lee
