This brass has been sold and shipped.
The headstamp is LC 96 Match. ArmyOrdGuy has it right--this was from M852, not M118. The cases have the rolled knurling near the base.
Once fired LC96 Match 7.62 brass. This is brass from M118 (actually, M852), the 7.62 match ammo that the military produced until they began with M118LR in about 1998. (The army [who produces small caliber ammunition for all of the government agencies] switched from the M82 173 gr projectile to the 175 gr Sierra Match King). This brass has been lightly tumbled in walnut, just enough to clean the dirt off. The annealing is still visible. I tried a dozen cases in my Dillon cage gauge, and they all dropped right in. The mouths are in good shape. It is not crimped. I can't be 100% certain, but I would bet that this brass was fired in bolt rifles. No nicks, no dings. I was always planning to shoot this in my match M1A (built by an armorer from the Ohio National Guard), but it is so hard on the cases, that I can’t bear the thought of running this brass through that rifle. I don't know if this was the last year they made 7.62 match cases. I do know that in 98 they were making LC98 LR cases.
The price is $22.50/100 plus $8.95 shipping. For orders of 600 or more cases, shipping is paid (USPS flat rate boxes). ($135 for 600 shipped)
This goes, in lots of 100 cases, in the order of “I’ll take x 100” posted here, and then send me e-mail or IM. E-mail get checked more often.
There are about 1100 cases available.
I just noticed that this picture is actually of LC03LR–I’ll change it in a few minutes.
