This ammo has the markings "T W 7 3" and comes 50 rounds loose per sealed plastic bag. The case is brass, the primer is silver, and there doesn't appear to be any evidence of a sealant. I got this at the local mom and pop gun store and he got it so long ago, he doesn't remember where it came from. I got a bag for a steal and figured I might try it out and see how it does this weekend.

Does anybody have any ideas? Thanks.

You got the 'unknown reloads' kind.

Be sure to close your eyes when you pull the trigger!

Upon much closer observation, the cases appear to have extraction marks on them. So I guess I did buy unknown reloads (although as Las_Vegas_HK said, they probably were originally manufactured by/at Twin Cities Ordinance in 1973). Oh well, I guess it's a good thing they were so cheap. I'm kind of scared to shoot them now knowing this.

Well, this mystery ammo didn't blow up my rifle. It was actually quite good. A detailed range report can be seen here...
