222 Remington question


#1

2 Questions:

The note I have with this state that it was reworked 5.56 brass formed into 222 Rem and loaded for the NZ Forestry Service?



Was this some sort of military application? The bullet is magnetic, but only slightly. I don’t have any notes on this

Thanks,

Daan, if the first one has a yellowish color brass case (acid cleaned) and it is loaded with a SP bullet, yes, it was reworked and loaded by Ordnance Developments Ltd., Lowe Hutt, New Zealand for the New Zealand Forest Service.

Fede,
Yes that is correct. Case looks like it was chemically cleaned with soft point bullet
