.30-06 blank in a bag (Cal .30 Rifle Grenade Cartridge, M3)


This came from a box of military ammo, the same as damaged 20mm Oerlikon. It is an un-fired .30-06 blank headstamped “FA 45” inside an official looking thick plastic sealed bag with something like “FA 203” stenciled on it. Any idea why?


Perhaps it is not a blank but a propulsion round that was packed separatly with a rifle grenade.


What clieuwens said. A Cal .30 Rifle Grenade Cartridge, M3, that was packed with a grenade.
