Although corrosive and over 75 years old, I bet it would
all fire. Evansville Chrysler, especially, made excellent
ammunition, both brass and steel case. Not so many years
ago, probably about 20, two friends of mine fired about 600
rounds of the steel case thru a TSMG with not one single
misfire, hangfire or jam. And this was pretty dirty ammo, and
I don’t mean from firing. It was physically dirty.
If you live in the United States, I would love to buy one package
of this from you. I have been looking for this Russian repack
for years. It was discussed on the forum some time ago.
During WWII, the US sent a lot of tommy guns, M1911(A1) pistols
to Russia, along with ammo. Many of them never got used as the
Russians were rolling out their Tokarevs and PPSh 41s at a pretty
good clip, as well as capturing a lot of Axis weapons.
It is the packaging that makes it collectible, as the ammo is quite common.
Of course, any cartridge is collectible if one collects that category and
does not have it, no matter how common or how rare.
