.30-06 "Peters 30G1906" w/Speer "Plinker"

I think it is a reload, because the primer is raised a bit, but may also be an experimental. Any thoughts?


Appears to have a Speer “Plinker” half-jacketed bullet. Likely a reload.

An experimental what?
Just a reload.

The .30-06 was for a time called the “.30 Government 1906”, hence the headstamp.

I imagine Peters was an ammunition manufacturer.

Ditto. Speer 100 gr. “Plinker” bullet. When did this bullet first appear in their product line? I’ve used them since the 1980’s as I recall…


They’re still makin’ 'em.

I know the Plinker goes back at least to the late 1960s, as I was using them then to load .30 Carbine.

This bullet was announced as “new” in this add dated June 1961:

This one is dated February 1965:
