I was excited to get a full packet of CBC M4 45 Auto recently. In my part of the world, this was the first time I saw such a packet, although the loose cartridges are commonly found. These rounds have been discussed in previous threads (CBC Brazil .45 ACP "M-4" and Green lacquered Brazilian rounds) and in the really informative article by John Moss in the IAAJ #319 (The auto pistol cartridges of Brazil).
To fully appreciate the packet, could someone please confirm what “D.P.O.” and “D.F.R.” means. From previous literature, I know that the “M.G.” = Ministério de Guerra.
Metralhadros de Māo = submachine gun? (machine gun of the hand?)
Lote de Recebimento No. = Receipt Lot Number?
Carregado em = Loaded on?
Com Pόlvora = with powder?
