Do you say: five fifty six, or five dot five six?

Dumb question, I know.

The Army always referred to to as five point five six. As in five point five six ball ammunition.

Do you guys realize what an opportunity for a practical joke you just passed up?

Dont take the five fifty six to tight dudes ;)
German parlance of the 7.62 is usually "Sieben zwoundsechziger" (MUAHAHA pronounce that! ) meaning "seven sixtytwo".

Back to topic, "Fünf komma fünf sechs" (five point five six, komma actually being "," ) for me, some army dudes I know actually use the "five fiftysix".

62, (two and sixty)
yeah :) "zwo" is usually radio/army parlance for "zwei" (when you want to make sure the other end doesnt confuse "zwei" and "drei" (two and three) which can sound pretty similar when shouted over a crappy radio. Thus "zwo" .

Well, the easiest to pronounce are those that I personally fired out of my gun. They're especially easy to pronounce if they're berdan primed, as they will not come back to life. Steel cases are pretty easy, too, for similar reasons.

But, in general, check to see the primer has been hit hard. Another good sign is that there's no projectile sitting on top. This would also mean there's no powder inside. If, in addition to the foregoing, the seemingly empty hull/vessel......having lost it's immortal soul.........is badly crushed you can take that one to the bank.

Put a fork in those, Phil. Done. Finished. Kaput. RIP.

HTH,

Sam

Very good!! I would have understood without a problem
For that long a time ago, respect! German being a really crappy language to learn, even for Germans.

[jfyi, and I dont wanna sound teacher-like, but it might interest you:]
Sehr gut! Ich habe 2 Jahre Hochdeutsch in der Schule gelernt. Meine Lehrerin war Frau Herman. Das war vor 18 Jahren.
