8x63.5mm "FA 37"

What is it?

A handload.



Some might call it a wildcat & name it an 8mm-06.

Worst part is, that’s an unusual headstamp and the original cartridge would have made a nice collectable for someone (like me or Rene).


The case is for the M1 ball, naturally. I think I’ve gt a couple of boxes and carded tan bandoliers of the same HS. Cheers, Bruce.

Hey Bruce. Check them. If they are that headstamp, let me know. I thought that headstamp was used to identify different case manufacture procedures and not used for standard issue Ball M1. The lack of a primer crimp implies that particular case was initially made as an unprimed empty.
