Chris Punnett and I are in Mondevideo about to leave for Buenos Aires. We spent a couple of days in Buenos Aires before coming over to Uruguay. The Argentine Association is very impressive-more later on that.
Here in Uruguay we have been visiting collectiors and seen some incredible cartridges. Chris has lots of photos and they will eventually appear in the Journal, but just a preview here.
It is hard to pick the most impressive cartridge I have seen, but ranking right up there is a coil case 44 Henry made in Brazil. Was also surprised to see the current 5.56x45mm & 7.62x51mm headstamps being used by the Brazilian military “PPU 5.56 L01-11 UY” and “CBC 7.62 L01-10 UY” These are from memory and I will correct them if different from my notes.
More later-got a plane to catch.
