Spent early afternoon at the Fire Guard #13 gravel pit.
If these are your's they can be claimed as follows.

30-06 live round. Appears to be a 170 gr soft point. Head stamp is "FUU".

Can't remember if that's Frankford Arsenal, or Federal...

Would gladly exchange this equal to shipping- except it's hard these days to find a carrier for the live stuff. Maybe I'll just dispose of it in my usual manner- a 10.5 gr JSB Heavy domed pellet hitting the primer at 25 yds at 825 fps should light her up. :bigrin:

.45 cal jacketed. Cannelure looks factory to my somewhat in-expert eye. There's a star mark on the base that has me thinking corbon. Possibly a bit short stroked on the powder side. Anyone know if a large pistol primer alone is enough to get one of these up the spout?

I was thinking b.p. at first, but the relatively clean base and cannelure have me thinking .45 acp...

Regards,

Doc Sharptail

I don't think just a primer would get it too far down the barrel. In revolvers, that scenario often leaves a bullet partially in both cylinder and barrel. SW

i still think BP but im not the big reloader here , it seems most of my low velocity residue goes back on the case because they do not swell to close the chamber , just my 2 cents and no they are not mine

On phone pls excuse auto correct.

Jacketed seems an odd thing to do in BP unless there is a a sabot involved. Pretty strong rifling engraved on this one.
I admit to being out of my element on this though....
