Hi,Use the paper clip icon to attach pictures. Are they loaded rounds or bullets for reloading? I need to know the diameter and the weight of the bullet, a picture will not tell me. Is there a web site with information on them? Tom

Hi,They are 7.62 x 39 rounds, I'm not sure what you mean by original, they are the correct rounds for AK-47's and the SKS. They are made by Barnaul in Russia. The primers are sealed and the cases are coated to make them chamber easier. 95% of steel cased ammunition is Berdan primed which means they can not be reloaded and these are new rounds. The bullet diameter should be .311" and weight should be 122 or 123 grains.(bullet alone). I have never had a problem with steel cased ammo in my AK's, I have fired thousands and never had a mis-fire or problem. Barnaul makes very good ammunition and you shouldn't have any problem using themI hope this helps,Tom
