50 Cal Ball Round


#1

Hi Fella’s,

Came accross a 50 Cal Ball Round with a headstamp thats not in our IAA reference library.  It is headstamped: LK 88.  Was wondering who made it and what Country it was made in?   I was always told that if it had a date on the headstamp that it was Military?   Thanks In Advance,   joe

Yugoslavian, if like the one below. It is in the headstamp list under “i” since it is an upper-case i apparently.

IK Igman, (of) Konjic; Town near Sarajevo, in what is now “Bosnia-Herzegovina” ( Formerly a Republic within the Federated Republic of Yugoslavia.)
Quality maker of Military and Sporting ammo (on a Par with Prvi-Partizan of Uzice, Serbia).

Made .50 cal. for export, and for use on US-built Tanks acquired in the 1950s ( also made .30 cal as well, for the same reason); Now makes Mil ammo with Boxer Primers.
