While cleaning out an old family house, I came across a small quantity of live rounds in 5-round stripper clips. They may be tracer rounds (red band where projectile meets case mouth), have no head-stamp, and appears to be berdan primed with large primers in a standard rimless case. The OAL= 83mm and the caliber is slightly larger than a standard 7.62NATO round. Would anyone like to guess what this might be? My real interest lies with the fact that I've found a firearm requiring each type of round I've come across in the house (M-1 carbine, .45ACP, Mauser HSC, .38SP, etc), but this looks like it may be a machine gun round.
