    Default A gift of unknown origin

    Hi guys,

    Over the weekend my parents came over and with a gift, knowing i like all things ww2 they found an ammo tin whilst out at a country market and bought it for me.

    $15.00 AUD

    Looks modern to me but i don't know much about these so any help would be apreciated.

    Side-


    So, 200 x 7.62 mm mixed ball and tracer round MG link and i suspect the rounds were explosive. The painted over diomond shaped sticker on the side indicates that to me but thats as far as my thinking takes me. Any help would be much apreciated.

    Cheers-

    Darren.

    Fairly modern. It was repacked in 1985.

    Cheers, Ade.

    PS: Please upload pics direct

    Its an ammo can for an US made M-60 machine gun, 7.62 / .308 linked ammunition.
