338-416 box notes


#1

I have had these 12 empties for sometime now. I contacted Jim Bell about the cartridge/case story, and he kindly obliged sending the details.

Can anyone shed light on the military notations and the drawing.

Hi Jack, very interesting notations on the box. My interpretation is:

MSG Amelung = U.S. Army Master Sergeant William Amelung
Special Opns Tgt Interdiction (SOTI) = U.S. Army Special Operations Target Interdiction Course (SOTIC)
Tel 3710/3302
10th SFGA = 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne), Fort Devens, Massachusetts

The lot number is a reference to Research Armament Prototypes, Inc. in Little Rock, AK, which was the company that manufactured the Model 300 rifle in this caliber.

Regards,

Fede
