Just purchased some of these but can not find any information.
I googled, searched allot of sites, searched this site but can not find any information.
-Copper Jacket Bullet
-Bullet Not Magnetic at tip
-Bullet IS MAGNETIC Past tip all the way to the end (inside the brass) so probably AP?
-NO PAINT MARKS on bullet (like the silver or black on US/NATO AP)
-No color on bullet to brass seating/sealant area
-Slight red color at primer to brass seating area
-Primer with three light crimp marks (original military purchase/loading)
"13" on the top
"85" on the bottom
Only thing I can find at this site is “13” being associated with an unknown Cuban factory.
Since this is a 50 BMG I am hoping someone might know what this is and what kind of loading/bullet/primer/corrosive/etc?
I will probably pull one and dissect as it is unlikely I will shoot soon but I can get more if I act soon. I am hoping this is boxer primed/reload-able but still don’t look forward to depriming with these crimps.
Any info will be helpful.
