No hst, 405 stamped on some cases
Are they live rounds? Never saw a whole box. Anything on the box itself?
No markings on the box! Some of the rounds are reloaded with powder only!
in which country did you find this box ?
GREAT box !
En Suisse JP… Switzerland!
While unloading black powder and cleaning the ctgs, found a very faint hst one one case only
St-Etienne and some kind of logo before!
Great shell. Looks to have four notches cut / filed in the rim at 0600h
To me it looks more like the marks of a vice.
don’t see any marks on the other side, but then I can’t see all of the other side
Pete, the other side here would be the case mouth!
It that is so, because I would guess this shell is 8 or 9 inches long, that would seem to have been a very large vice?
True! As the case is semi-rimmed maybe one tried to grab only the rim in the vice?
