7.62mm M118LR help needed


#1

It’s time again for me to ask for help in my research on the 7.62mm M118LR (Long Range) ammunition. More particularly I am looking for 7.62mm M118LR made between 1994 and 2001. It will have an LC LR headstamp. Made by Olin when they still operated the LCAAP.

Full cartons, partial boxes, loose rounds, documents, whatever you might have.

Thanks

Ray

The only “LC LR” headstamp I have is this:

My notes indicate that it came from lot LC-95M301S463, and I have it listed as “Special Ball M118”. I’m not sure if this is exactly what you’re looking for or if it is even helpful, but hopefully it will be of some use!

Thanks Chip. I hope yours is the first of many responses.

I have a full carton of that cartridge. Unfortunately it’s only one of a very few pieces of real evidence that I’ve been able to find. I’ve carefully opened the carton, dissected a cartridge, chronographed others, weighed and measured them every which way but loose, so there’s not much else I can do with them. I need more examples if I’m ever going to make sense of the development of the M118 LR.
