Hi,
thx for the report. We will look on it.

I know what is the cause of this issue. It was basically that the DEVs forgot to remodel the ammo stampings.

On a long time ago, on the very start of ArmA 3, the Zafir was using 7.62 x 51mm NATO.
However, since it was assigned to CSAT, it was changed to 7.62 x 54(R).
So the gun was tweaked, and the "old NATO .30 cal" ammo belt even still exists in the game! But since the gun does not use 7.62 x 51, it simply is pretty much hidden.

Also would be worth to mention that the "old 7.62x51mm belts" they are labelled as being "7.61x54mm"! This is rather problematic when using (mod) weapons with compatible magwells and fighting CSAT that uses Zafirs, as the Zafir belt is completely identical except for the fact that it can be loaded into the Zafir (7.62x54), and that it does NOT load into "7.62 x 51mm" weapons. So it would be really nice if this was also fixed...
