6 M/M U.S. Navy Smokeless


#1

MY first post, hope I got this right. I found a box of 6 mm cartridges in my an old ammo box my dad had. No idea where it came from. There are 19 cartridges one of them missing the bullet. Some head stamped U.M.C. 6 m/m u.s.n. and the others are marked w.r.a. co 6 m/m u.s.n. The top of the two piece box is marked 6 m/m U.S. NAVY SMOKELESS
20 CENTRAL FIRE CARTRIDGES
REMINGTON ARMS-UNION METALLIC CARTRIDGE Co
AMMUNITION & FIREARMS
UNION METALLIC CARTRIDGE WORKS
The side says FOR REMINGTON LEE MILITARY AND SPORTING AND LEE STRAIGHT PULL RIFLES
with a picture of the round and 112 grs. bullet
After casual searching on the internet I find very little on it’s rarity or worth?
Could anyone help me out with this. I know about the Lee rifles but very little about the ammo.
Thanks

The big question is are the rounds on clips? Alone, those rounds are worth $2-$3 each. As a whole, the almost full box is a bit better. The clips are pretty scarce and valuable. I have seen individual clips, empty, go for $75 and more.

Thanks for the info. No clips were with it but now I’ll search through a box of loose ones he had.
