This 30-06 cartridge was made in the UK back in the 1950s. Its non-corrosive primer, brass casing, and fortune of having been stored somewhere safe and dry means it’s still ready to prove its worth at the range along with your help. This cartridge’s 148 grain bullet dons a full metal jacket, as would have been required for a standard use military round, and accordingly delivers reliable and clean shooting out of a rifle.
Unlike most American-made rounds, this one’s ignition is delivered via Berdan primer. While reloading is possible when a Berdan primer is involved, the brass casing’s integral anvil and double flash holes make the pursuit substantially less straightforward. Still, the first (and nearly certainly only) time you fire this round is going to prove immensely satisfying. It’s a moment that will have been about seven decades in the making!
