    43 dated ammo

    I recently acquired one bandoleer of RA 43 dated 30-06 in Garand clips and another 60+ rounds loose. The primers are a little different looking than modern examples. It looks like another ring around the primer. I was wondering if anybody knows whether this is actually Garand ammo or machinegun ammo. Sorry no photo. I'm not real tech savvy.

      I believe there no difference MG ammo and Grand ammo. I shoot both and found no difference. It makes no sense to have two different loads of the same caliper on a battlefield. Look at pictures of Vietnam of “grunts” carrying there own load of 5.56mm for their m-16 and a belt of 7.62 for the m-60.

        Remington used the extra primer crimp for RAF aircraft machine guns and the head stamp was RA 1941 over 300 Z, the Z was for a special powder as specified by the RAF. later Remington continued to manufacture 30M2 ball still with the primer crimped. These Remington manufactured cartridges could be used in any weapon.
