AS PER JOHN KINDRED, THIS POST IS CORRECTED TO SHOW THE SEQUENCE IS TRACER, AP, BALL, INCENDIARY. Questions are moot, I guess.
Another BESA belt. The loading sequence appears to be: Tracer, AP, Ball, Ball. this doesn’t sound like a really odd sequence, but there are two different ball rounds (K2 43 IIZ AND K44 BIIZ). I think they are used repeatedly in sequence.
Can anyone confirm that this is a standard load? Have you seen a can labled Tracer, AP, Ball, Ball?
Did the factory belt loading machines have chutes that were fed with case lot quantities? (as opposed to the sequences being loaded manually)
BTW, feel free to bid on this, it is a bit steep for my finances.
