We’ve talked about some of the bogus online auction sellers on here before with regards to all the “Raufoss”, API, and other AP explosive type projectiles that some people label as being USGI when it is not, and I recently came across a seller who suddenly has innumerable quantities of reloaded .30 cal API in .308. Red flags went up and so I asked him about the bullets’ construction and their origin. He replied quite nicely and said that the person who sold the pulled bullets to him had them in packs that were labeled as if they were pulled from USGI 30-06, and he also surprisingly enclosed what he called a CT-Scan of the bullet (pictured below). He repainted the tips and loaded them into their new cases. He also said that the bullet does have a copper-clad steel jacket. Did the U.S. ever do .30 cal API loads with a copper-clad steel jackets? When he said that, I assumed that these were what I suspected which is just resized Russian API stuff with the steel jackets??
