What are the correct markings on a WW2 .50cal side opening metal ammo box sealed with a ringed pin that holds 105 or 110 linked rounds, is it 105 or 110? Anyone have any good war time examples of the markings.

Chris,

 

Chis bond had some .50 cans,I allways thought ammo cans of whatever caliber were not marked, but when repacked they got marked acordingley!?.

 

.50 is 105 rds.

So basicly your saying they wern't maked at all. I would have thought that they would have been marked to see if the contents had ball and tracer etc. Were there any type of seal on the cans a tag or something apart from the pin and ring.

Yes,same goes for bandoliers,marked = repacked.As for marked with a lable denoting tacer or ball i will give it a educated guess and say yes,may be every 25 rds for .30 and 10 for .50!?[i stand to be corrected].
