14.5x114mm rifle clip


#1

Here is an interesting clip that you do not see very often. The cartridges are not original to this clip, just whatever I had available to include in the photo. The .30 Garand clip is shown just to illustrate its scale. Yes, I too have noticed that the Garand clip is incorrectly loaded, but not before I photographed it!

I’ll let you work out what rifle it fitted.

Gravelbelly - shame on you. Slap those long rounds home on your helmet before the enemy gets to you, or you won’t be able to load that Garand. Teasing you - good you noticed after the picture was taken. I love the Garand, but that illustrates one of the few things that will stop one quick!

John,

Shame on me indeed, and I pride myself on being a bit of a clip specialist! I just picked a Garand clip out of the drawer and a handful of inert rounds for it, a bit rushed as I wanted to use natural light and a big black raincloud was headed my way. I later tried banging the base of the clip on a wood block to see if the rogue cartridge would jump into the groove but it didn’t work for me.

What is the headstamp of the cartridge with the unpainted bullet tip?
