.50/30, factory or homemade?

Interesting, the date has a defective bunter. Also, it’s a steel case.

I think this is a .50/.30 US XPL High Velocity.

Yeah, but Lowell Mass didn’t do any .50/.30 work, so does seem suspicious. Balancing that suspicion is that it’s not easy swaging down a steel case like a brass case. Jess, does the case attract a magnet? (i.e. is it just a tinned brass case?)

It’s steel case
