30-06 Match?


#1

Howdy folks, I could not find this round in Chris Punnetts book, the headstamp is WESTERN 30-06 SPRG it has a tinned case, long pointed gm. fmj.projectile and a domed tinned primer , the bullet is seated well out of the case over 1in, for a total OL of 3.49in so my guess is a match round and if so who for and when? thanks Randy

You got yourself a Wimbledon Cup Match cartridge. They came in several different headstamps, both nickeled and plain brass.

ca. 1925-1940
