    Czech M48 7.62X25

    Anyone know where I can find this for a CZ-52? This is the "hot" loaded 7.62X25 ammo that runs slightly faster than regular 7.62X25. Haven't been able to find it though.

    I don't think it ever existed. I have searched high and low for an example and have never found one except for in cyberspace. Heck, at this point, I'd settle for a photo of a certifiable headstamp of an M48 7.62x25 round.

    You mean this stuff? This is the oldest Czech 7.62x25 ammo I've got, both are dated 1953 and come on the stripper clips for the Sa.24 and Sa.26 submachine guns.

    I'm not sure where the 'M48' name comes from because until 1951 Czechoslovakia's service arms were chambered in 9x19 or 7.65x17.

    The lacquered case stuff is steel cased. The projectiles of the copper and nickel jacketed stuff attract a magnet - not sure if it's steel jacketed or steel core. They all have the same headstamp - BXN 53 1.

    Whoops, I realized I posted the blurry version of the two photos I shot. Can't edit the post anymore, so here's the clear version.
