what is your favorite non western military round?

Lets talk a little about AMMO: Some customers of ours shoot with all type of guns. Sometimes very old guns.

ARMARIN bought this week:
7.62x45mm. It was developed by Czechoslovakia for use in the Vz.52 Rifle. They dropped it after the Soviets forced them to adopt the 7.62x39mm. Their answer was the Vz.58 Rifle.... The Czechs have done nicely telling the Soviets to sit and spin on it throughout their history in the Warsaw Pact. If I had factory backup I'd design a modern rifle around this cartridge.

The Chinese are currently fielding the 5.8×42mm DBP87 in their new service rifle. Haven't seen much about it since the ChiComs haven't got into a shooting war and they're not exporting the caliber. ARMARIN was Lucky to find some big chests

Another one we bought is the Swedish 6.5x55mm. A nice flat shooting low recoil round. Chambered in Swedish Mausers and the Norwegian Krag. Also Sweden's AG-42 semi-auto.

Stock lot of the classic British .577/450 Martini-Henry from the Zulu War period is a fun one to play with too.

Simple Question here, (Just like to know) what is your favorite military round? Can be any type of ammunition from any era, but cannot be from Western Europe or the United States or Western Hemisphere.
