    First off I'm new to the forum so greetings all.

    I was given about 55 rounds of 7.62mm loaded in 5 round clips.

    I've done a bit of looking around I believe the WRA 68 refers to Winchester rounds made in 1968. All I have read seems to point out they are quality rounds in very high quality brass.

    I'm brand new to reloading, so new I haven't even set up my Rock Chucker kit I received a few days ago.

    My question is: do these rounds have some special value as is or should I just shoot em at the range and re use the quality brass.( I have a "multi" caliber 7.62)
    and BTW was there a weapon that used the 7.62 five round clips or was the purpose of the clip to load a magazine?

    Thanks, from the FNG
