Well hello! First post here!
I’ve gotten a hold of junk box that had alot of interesting cartridges.
Like two Colt 1911 .45 ammo (two rounds) made in 1918 (yes GI stuff.) RCCO 18 on the case head.
Several .45 steal case WW 2 rounds. E C S 43
Old .38/40, .44-40, .41 LC, and some very long rounds.
One says .43 on the case head (.43 Egyptian or 43 Spanish?) CCC 43 SP-RB
A W.R.A. Co. 40-82 WCF
An old WRA .45/70
And interesting a paper patched bullet with a sort of rebated rim and the inscription on the case head:
It is a little longer than the .43 and has a longer neck.
Also a very interesting 45/70 (I think cause another .45/70 I have is the same length and bullet type and has W.R.A.Co .45/70)
This one has a old silver or tin kind of case, has a head stamp of
With the 1 and 5 in vertical alignment on the left side. Is that 1891?
Any ideas on these?
