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

Its low recoil training ammo.

Edit: beat to it... should have read the rest of the thread

I saw a box of Remington 5mm rimfire at the fun show today. What is it for?

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.
Link Posted: 2/24/2013 7:47:31 AM EDT
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.
Link Posted: 2/24/2013 7:47:44 AM EDT
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 don't have anything old or nostalgic but I do have around 8k rounds of Black Talon ammo in 45ACP, 10mm, 9mm, 357 magnum, and 44 magnum.

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.

ETA they look like this:

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.
