Ruger commemorative cartridge box

I had not seen this ammunition before.

The entire post is here:



This appeared on the market a few years ago in 30-06, made by ElDorado/PMC (case made in Korea and shipped to Nevada for loading). The rounds in this box were headstamped W B RUGER 30-06. They had a nickel case and primer and were loaded with a Nosler bullet with green platic tip.

There was also a proof case (also nkl) and several different dummies with either no primer or a circular depresssion on the primer. It appears that a number of the empty cases “escaped” the factory so watch out for fakes.

See IAA Journal #375 pg 4 for the full story of how they came about.
