    my stepdad bought a box of bullets for his 30-06, and when we opened them at home we realized they werent 30-06. they came in a remington corelokt box, but were smaller cases with bigger bullets. they are marked 7.92 x 42mm. Anyone ever hear of them?

    Are you sure it wasn't 7.62x42 in which case it would be the Czeck version of 7.62x39.

    The short 7.92 was to my memory 7.92x33.
