Don't know the real story on it. I've also read it's training ammo.


Its low recoil training ammo.

Back in the day they marketed a 5mm remington rifle, it was an awesome rifle, but it never caught on as well as the newer rimfires have, and faded away to obscurity

Uhhhh, thats sorta creepy.

Considering that the Norks started using x39 around the same time hostilities began between us and them.

In seriousness I think I have some 7.7 Jap stashed away at my parent's house. That's about as unique as it gets for me.

Somewhere around here I've got a NORMA 9.3x74R round but it isn't shaped like a normal 9.3x74R.
It's blown out straight walled and loaded with a RN lead bullet. I think its an old custom reform into a 405 Winchester.

Not really rare/unique, but I guess SS198lf 5.7x28. Second I guess would be 6.5 Grendel. It's not at all unique for members of this forum, but IRL no one knows WTF it is.

I have a bunch of 6.5x55 Swedish training ammo. The bullets are very short and round-nosed, barely protruding from the case neck.

They're LOUD and make a huge muzzle flash.

When I bought them I was hoping they could be fired in my back yard. No way.

A tin plated .30-03 paper bullet blank from Frankford Arsenal dated 1905 (apologies for the shitty pic)


.30-06 match ammo that pre dates the Winchester Model 70; it has a slightly mercuric primer.


And 4 or 5 boxes like this full of examples.

Couple of different. 50 bmg rounds that are hard to come by.
7.92x33 Kurz
8mm Breda
5mm pinfire

Different calibers of the blue plastic/aluminum base training ammo. Numerous calibers of that

7.62x39 plastic core short range ammo. Came in 10 rd blister packs. Have 2 or 3 of those blister packs. Came from E. Germany
Israeli wooden bullet. 308 had a case of it. Pulled all the bullets for the brass. Kept 3 loaded rds for the hell of it.

Browning headstamped rifle ammo in .30-60 and .25-06 from the late 60's. Not a big ammo collector but I have several boxes of each.

I have a lot of #4 and #5 lead 12ga shotgun stuff by federal stamped "Duck and pheasent" which was obviously before the lead ban for waterfowl.
