[quote=“RayMeketa”]And now for something different - and a couple of questions.
Left to right:
FAL 43 - Frankford Arsenal Laboratory, Aluminum case, Empty, No primer, M2 bullet jacket without a core. What is it??
Are you sure this is a aluminum case ? I have similar steel case versions.
Could be a M40 dummy. Pls see Punnett page 215.
If it is aluminum, it is a very nice one.
FA 37 - Cadmium-plated brass case, M2 GMCS bullet. What is it??
I think I have read a comment somewhere that these were for extrusion test.
(you know, of course) the H/S is 37 but the GMCS bullet was not in place till 1942,
so the cartridge must be loaded later than 1937
FA 39 - Tin plated brass case, Stannic stained M2 bullet. For “extraction tests” or ??
Don’t know, interesting item
SL 43 - M2 “Jetalized” bullet. Result of tests??
Not 100% sure what you mean but I would put it under test since it never went into mass production.
FA 54 - M2 AP bullet, completely coated with teflon. Result of tests??
Again, I would put it under test. I have a box and it is marked with FAX-30 lotnumber.
Regards from the beach. No 41NM’s have turned up yet
