  11. I would love to find 45 cal ammo for the M1911 dated in the range of WW1. If any of you have any sources please let me know. Vettepartz and Dirt Detective, It would appear that not all the military ammo was date stamped so plainly as yours are. You are fortunate to have come across these for your collections. Thank you for posting them.
