Dave, it’s true. When it comes to the 7.62 NATO you’re the man.!!
I have the same pre-NATO cartridges. Other than the T5, are there other “T” designations that you know of?
What you call "green’ is actually a light gray to my eyes.
I did not realize that there were so many 51mm aluminum cases. I knew about the 10 to 15 WCC experimentals but not the others. Of course, I don’t collect the post-NATO so would not have any reason to look for them. Any idea what the WCC cases were for???
I do have the WCC 51mm that is headstamped T 5. I assume that it is simply a coincidence that it has the same designation as the 47mm case.
I have one 51mm case that has not been mentioned. It is a NUPE, dark gray in color, and has the headstamp FA in small letters at 12 o’clock. Any idea what it is?
(I’d post a photo but every time I open my photobucket account the sirens scream and a voice says, “Danger, danger, a virus has been detected.” So I have to close and run my anti-virus program.)
Thanks for all the good information.
