    Has anyone ever seen this kind of ammo?

    I won an auction on gunbroker and these 5 .30-06 rounds were included in it. the seller said they were unique to him and they are to me too. so I was wondering if anyone knew what they were? what they were used for? the info I have is from the seller's description from the auction:

    Included in this auction is five rounds of Remington Arms 1940 production ammo with bullets I have never seen before. Very unique to me. They have the appearance of chrome and are not magnetic. May possibly be zinc plated, but I'm not sure. These are factory rounds with crimped in and sealed primers. You won't be dissatisfied if you win this auction.

    thanks for any info!
    You can have my freedom as soon as I'm done with it!!!

    What is the head stamp date? It looks like the Ball, M1906. http://images.downland.sk/files/rfqo...layqs0s9of.jpg I have some with a 1918 head stamp, although in very bad shape.

    Ball, M1906
    This cartridge is used against personnel and unarmored targets, and can be identified by its silver-colored bullet. The M1906 has a 9.7 g (150 grain) projectile and flat base. Its jacket is a cupro-nickel alloy which was found to quickly foul the bore
    Here is some great info on Military 30-06 ammo.

    A large amount (most) jacketed bullets used to be silver in color in the first part of the 1900's.

    They are silver bullets used to shoot werewolves. Not sure if they will work on zombies but keep them handy just in case.

    Cool Good Place to Look

    There is a book called "Cartridges of the World" this would be an excellent reference to seek out from your

    local library. Hope this helps

    it's headstamped R at 10 o'clock, A at 2 o'clock and 40 at 6 o'clock.. which I guess stands for remington arms 1940.
