Thanks guys! Appreciate the details!
I was told once upon a time that this was an offshore contract. The Canadian military boxes of this period usually have the manufacturer as part of the Lot Number. The box for this round is just standard Canadian military with no lot so no date or manufacturer identified. Doesn’t sound like commercial ammo to me.
IVI bought the old Dominion Ammunition plant in 1976. If this ammo was made in 1975, who was operating the old Dominion Plant at that time? Maybe it was made after IVI bought the plant but the original questions still stand-why was it made?
Politek Distribution Inc. is a strange name for a commercial ammo company. Did they ever do anything else or were they just a front company? A brand name like Munico, doesn’t sound very Canadian to me.
Does anyone have any idea who this was made for or who owned/ran Politek Distribution???
Must be a story here somewhere!
