I recently purchased a bag of old .45 caliber pistol rounds. Most I’ve been able to identify the time period. However, I’ve a couple that are puzzling.
REM-UMC 45 ACP
I know that this is a Remington Arms cartridge for the .45 caliber automatic pistol. However, I was wondering how old a .45 round with this stamp would be. Does anyone know if there was a certain period of time this was used or if it was used for civilian or military?
S & B (looks like a bomb) 45 AUTO
This is supposed to be Sellier & Bellot, Czechoslovakia. Given I cannot imagine Cold War-era Czechoslovakia making US ammunition, I’m thinking that this is either pre-WWII or (unlikely given the aged look of the round) post-1991. Does anyone know for certain?
