Ammo experts-List of


#1

I was browsing the old “historian” forum and bumped into this list. I took a liberty to copy it, written by, I believe, DrSchmittCSAEOD, hoping that he would not mind my bringing it to the present forum, since not everybody here knows that the old forum software “collapsed” after a cyber attack, but still contains interesting information, albeit somewhat damaged. So, everything below is written by DrSchmittCSAEOD, but you may expand onto this list.

Thanks for the info. There are several “experts” who I believe until I see them PROVEN wrong. Proof includes marked boxes , government manuals(not always-proof), company manuals and publications , patents ( again-not always proof),specimens (after forensic examination).

The following ammunition experts are folks who I believe when they give information within their field of expertise:

Bill Woodin - ANYTHING
Col.Frank Hackley - ANYTHING
P.REGENSTREIF - ANYTHING
P. Petrusic - ANYTHING
John Moss - ANYTHING related to auto pistol and/or 7.9 Mauser-lots of other calibers as well

A couple of these fellows have passed away. Anything I post is free game for the use of others.

My personal thanks to each of these named individuals, as I have learned lots from them. And if I were ever “pressed” for information, and it was on one of my “good” mornings–when I seem to be able to remember breakfast by noon, I could site specific examples for each of the names listed.

However, as stated, it should be expanded, as there are many other names that should also be included, and I will try to add more if that “good” morning ever comes around. For the moment:

Astrid Valati (DocAV) anything movie related, anything Australian, anything that was ever shipped to Australia, etc. etc.

Ron Fuchs anything 5.56X45 anything Cal.50 or 12.7 X 99
