Information on Ca;.30 with T-53 primer

Hello, I have two Cal 30. [30-06] loaded rounds with the T-53 zinc primer, 1 ball the other AP. Is there anything else noted about either of these other than the experimental primer

Thanks FD, Does the High Cannelure on the AP signify anything? different AP? I wish I had copies of HWS and 30-06.

No, it was added as extra identification early WW2.
On the ball cartridges; I have specimen with GM and GMCS jacket.

HWS III is still available. Please contact MEL on the Forum. He can help you.
