7.65x53.5mm Argentine spotter with explosive head, steel jacket, black tip. Headstamp - FYA/ 19/ 28/ HP Hirtenburg, Austria.
OK, promised Mr Merchant some pics on mishaps or “What not to do”. This is the biggest mistake thus far. On a hectic day of pulling projectiles, this round got mixed in with others. Not paying attention, inserted the cartridge and then slammed it down on an old railing on back deck. BOOOOOMMMM!!! Thought a shotgun went off! No one got hurt, but my ears were ringing for hours. Could have been a lot worst. If it wasn’t for the construction of the puller, with the metal handle at mid body, most of the explosion wouldn’t have been away from me. Morale - Pay Attention, after this started to label everything before, during, and after!
Also please take noticed that the round is still LIVE! Just the projectile has exploded.
Have a couple more of these, will return to incendiaries, API, etc in a few.
