Also at the recent Bisley meeting I found a 30 cal (7,62x63) cartridge converted into a 7,62x51 dummy. It is headstamped ‘DEN 42’ with a fired brass primer ring crimped into the case. There are 4 flutes along the body, stopping well short of the shoulder and the bullet is retained with a coned crimp.
Does anyone know the story of this case … the usual why, why and where would be interesting to know.
Happy collecting, Peter
