Around 1969 or so, the U.S. Air Force tested the fesability of an API load in 7.62x51mm for use in the “minigun”. Repotedly, this test ammunition was assembled at Frankford Arsenal using .30-06 API projectiles.
Does anyone know what these cartridges looked like and what the headstamp might be?
There is a fellow on another board that has what I beleive to be reloads that he swears is this ultra-rare experimental ammo. Nevermind the fact that this handful of ammunition was “given” to him about a year ago along with a handfull of obvious “AP” reloads.
I’d like to set the fellow straight with some correct information about the real cartridges before he tries to sell them to unsuspecting buyers…
