    Thanks Steve,always encouraging to hear from you all Now i love finding things,when you find the bullet youve got to find the case,thats all part of the fun.so when i found that target and bullets i just had to work out where they may have been fired from.Click image for larger version.

    I managed a quick search this morning found a few bullets and was fortunate to find the firing point.This little lot was all found in one place! im guessing they dug a hole and threw them in rather than carry them away with them.

    289 !!!!! Bloody hell !

    Must be an MG position. The guys on the range wouldn't have been bothered about collecting stuff up into one location......too much like hard work

    yeah im guessing your right.Although i did arrive at the pit theory as they were at least 10 inches down,very lucky to get a signal off the top ones otherwise i may have missed them altogether

    forgot to mention this area is mental,positons on the left firing right.right firing left mortars in between.bananas

    Same at the range I go to. Sand shifts a lot over the years, some are on the surface, some 18inches down......just luck that you walked over them
