OK,here it is: “the official can you pls help me thread”
After I committed myself to make an overview of lot numbers for military 30-06 cartridges,
I did a lot of reading, surfing etc etc. I found a lot of info, but also found “strange” things.
EG if you go to HWS volume 1 pages 149 & 185, you see an Armor Piercing and a
Tracer box with same loading date ( Date, loader, machine and even lot number).
Is that possible (or likely) , two types of ammo on the same line on the same day with the same lot numbers ???
As said, I gathered a lot of info but there is still a lot outstanding. I have to contact some
people, do dbl-checks etc etc. However you can help me too.
In case you have a box of military US 30-06, with original content, pls drop me a line with only the following information:
- Lot number
no need for long stories etc only something like:
Frankford Arsenal, Ball M1, FA 2160, FA 41
no worries, I will delete your e-mail after I have added the info into my list
and I won’t reply to you unless you want me to.
Pls send the data to: 30-06cartridges (at) web (dot) de
I decided to concentrate on Ball ,AP, Tracer, API and Incendiary.
Because Blanks & dummies are often made of reloaded cases, I will not include those.
Of course , you can reply to this thread.
Thanks a lot for your help !!!
