[quote=“Sht_LE”]After Guy’s question about the Kynoch box colours on the “Kynoch date code” thread, I looked through my Kynoch boxes. For some reason, this one amused me so I thought I would share.
Is it just me, or does it really matter that “these cartridges are fitted with Non-rusting caps” given that they are loaded with Black Powder?
I shoot blackpowder regularly and have no problems with rust, cleaning is necessary but simple. However, the residues from some primers, irrespective of propellant type, are very corrosive. Years ago I fired some WRA 1943 .303 rounds which turned out to be AGRESSIVELY corrosive. As you walked back from the firing point you could just about hear your rifle rusting. I cleaned that rifle every day for a week before I stopped the rusting. Never again will I shoot U.S. wartime ammo, I inerted the rest and made dummies for clip fillers.
