I have heard of the homologous rounds, but know nothing about them other than the US military was experimenting with them in the 1950s.
I acquired one in a batch of other cartridges a short time ago and need to know general information about their history, why they are called homologous rounds, why were they an improvement over other rounds, and their value if any. Also where would one find a written reference(s) to such a cartridge?
Here is a photo:
The headstamp on the cartridge is WCC 53 with red primer sealant in the annulus. When I found the cartridge it was labeled. The label reads as follows:
.25 caliber Homologous
TEST 3-02307 (although the “7” may be a “1”)
Thank you for any information.
