A family member came to me with this tin of ammunition. He can't for the life of him remember what it is. He bought it years ago and it's been set in the bottom of a closet forever. I can't for the life of me read the writing on the top of the tin. The picture is bad but honestly, you can't read it much better in person. The tin is about the size of 16 inches by 8 inches. There is a tag on it that states it's made in Russia. Also, how do you open these damn things?
