My buff cardboard .45 Automatic box, with green printing, from Remington has the address lines of Remington Arms Company, Incorporated, Bridgeport, Conn. Ilion, N.Y. Kings Mills, Ohio (printed at the bottom of the back label and on two lines). The word “Incorporated” is spelled out, not abbreviated, just as I showed it.
Regarding the first box mentioned on this thread, were we given the complete address lines? That is, is “King’s MIll” the only factory mentioned? On my box, the three factory names clearly are simply an expression of the factories making up the Remington Arms Company, Inc., and no one of them is, as printed, an indication of where the ammunition was made.
Gastrap - will you please confirm whether or not your box has all the factory names, or only King’s Mill? If it has all of them, it will end all the speculation made here about where the ammunition was made - it will have been made at the Bridgeport Works.
My box, at the top of the bottom printing, also mentions the Colt Automatic and Thompson Sub-Machine guns. Their is also a blurb about the OILPROOF primer, and the usual quality-assurance statement.
The cartridges are brass case, copper primer with dark purple primer seal and A GM FMJ RN bullet. The case has a bullet-seating cannelure. Manufacture’s index number is R397A. When the end tabs that tuck into the box are pulled out, it can be seen that both say “OILPROOF” on the top of them.The box has printing on all six sides. All of the print is in green, including a stamped lot number. Because it is stamped over the print about the Oilproof Priming, it is hard to read. There is one entry, totally blurred, followed by what appears to be “10 D” but no guarantee on that being correct.
