I have just begun reloading and was given some of the gear and casings that my Grandpa had I am 29 and My Grandpa was in WWII. I came across a few brass that had a head stamp that did not identify what caliber it is. I tried to do some research and the most I could find was they might be from WWII. They are about the same size as a normal 30-06 casing. I have a few that have different stamps, reading clockwise, one shows (T W 3 5); (L O 7 5); (4 3 T W); (U 4 3) and (5 L C). A few reasons I am looking to better identify the casings is, 1) I would like to know if it I would be able to reload and use in my 30-06 rifle. 2) If it is from WWII, I would just plan on holding onto it (I have a huge interest in WWII memorabilia, especially something simple like this that was tied to my Grandfather as well). 3) Getting more familiar with brass stamps will help me to be safer and better off when reloading, as to not use the wrong brass. I dont want to make a mistake and mix up brass that is close to but not the same as what I should use…example .223 and 5.56 rnds.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
