US Military Contract 7.92mm Box
Posted 17 November 2019 - 11:01 AM
SMALL ARMS AMMUNITION METALLIC CARTRIDGES
MADE IN USA
WESTERN CARTRIDGE COMPANY EAST ALTON, ILL., USA
1.27 CU. FT.
And marked on the end (short side):
7.92 m/m BALL CARTRIDGES
GRADE A SITHOUT CLIPS
LOT WCC 6804
The lid is missing and there are no other markings except some hand written cryptic numbers in black crayon. The box looks WW II era to me. My guess is to use in captured weapons? One more photo in next post.
Comments welcome, thanks for looking.

The Nationalist Chinese (Brens as one example) and the British Commonwealth (Besa MGs in tanks) both used 7.92mm calibre weapons so the ammunition could have been manufactured for either group.
