.50 Caliber BMG Cartridges


Recommended Posts

Guys,

 

Here are some Winchester Repeating Arms .50 cal rounds that came off a broken, incomplete "trench art" wooden lamp I acquired from a vet who had been an AAF Armorer during WWII. There was no way to restore the lamp, so I saved the shells to put in my bullet collection.

 

Okay...what's unusual about the headstamps on these? Has anyone else seen this on .50 cal rounds (or any other US ammo for that matter) from any time?

 

Gary

A couple of years ago, I was yard saling and just happened to ask an older lady if she had any older military items. I always ask older folks, because there are allot of them out there that don't believe there would be any interest in "old Army stuff", so don't even think about digging it out to put up for sale. She said she didn't, unless I was interested in old bullets. Turns out she worked at the Denver Arsenal as an inspector during WWII.

 

Here are some of her souvenir "rejects" from her time there.

A handful of bullets that didn't pass inspection, including sealed AP rounds with no steel cores, tracer rounds that weren't filled or crimped and crimped AP rounds with no steel cores.
