Honor Guard running out of 06 blanks used at vet funeral services.Any help would be appreciated.
1. Can someone recommend a supplier for 30-06 blanks.

2. Can someone tell us where we can get dies to reload blanks, and make those crimps on the cases.

3. Loading information for 06 blanks.

Thank You

Don't have any load data but know these guys are pretty high on the food chain for mil.spec mM-1 blanks. Most groups around here buy from these guys.

www.atlanticwallblanks.com

ETA, TACOM should provide you with a certain amount each year if you are in the program.

We are loaned M 1's from an American Legion post near by. They also have provided blanks. Been saying they are running short. Several guys reload but, don't have dies for blanks. We just need to get some made up or information on dies so we can get one of the guys to reload for us. Will check out the site you recommended. Thanks.

.30-06 GI blanks were loaded with EC Blank Fire powder. This isn't available commercially.

Thank you for your help. Found the proper web site. Got a lot to do to get this off the ground. But, this is a great start.

Just be careful, if you're using the GI-type blank adapters then some of the blank loads AW sells are too powerful for safe use. Might be worth calling and asking; they're pretty good about working with a customer (I've bought from them and their phone folks were always helpful)

Thanks. Those blanks don't look like the ones we have been using.

I have one of these. https://www.ch4d.com/products/dies/bc

If you're looking to hand load, you're on your own. Not many will divulge their blank recipes. I've loaded them for reenacting and AM Legion/VFW, but my local post had 1903's, which aren't nearly as picky.
Blank powder is not commonly available, so you've got to work it up from scratch with a commonly available powder.

BE CAREFUL! It's very easy to go overboard with powder and blow something up with hand loaded blanks, especially a blank adapted semi-auto.

For reenacting, I use Atlantic Wall. Good stuff, very reliable. Call them, and they'll get you squared away with a BFA and the proper blanks.

Thanks for this information. I have turned all the information I have received here over to the founder of our Honor Guard. He will figure out which way we will go. Now it turns out the post that lends us the M1's has more blanks than we thought. We are not in as bad a shape as we thought .Thanks ,again.

How do you tell a blank from a grenade cartridge(usgi)?

I have some,( couple hundred) crimped cartridges.
