    Must be an American thing i take it , never seen this amongst British snipers , thanks for the information i had thought it was maybe somehting along the mythical lines of the Stalingrad sniper duel but clearly not !!

    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    I thought that the "hogs tooth" was just the Sierra match grade projectile and NOT the whole round...

    What youthcollector1 mentioned is very true for the members of the SS(Scout Snipers) of the Marine Corps. BUT I'm not so sure these rounds are HOG's Teeth, That is a Surplus Indian 308 round. We have them all over the Gun Markets Here. It looks like it a Key chain trinket or is used as a dummy round to test cycling of a 308 or .45ACP actions.

    As an American Sniper tradition, it is somewhat difficult to explain why the 2 rounds would be American weapons shells. If that was the case with these 2, I would have thought that they would be foreign make and calibers. More likely, as has been suggested earlier, they were simply drilled and emptied out for cool key chain attachments, is all. I think I have one around the house here myself, now that i think about it...

    Not really practical to both hump it in the direction of the enemy - especially not at the distance some of the sniper shots have been fired at in recent times.

    This very friendly bloke with whom I chatted at length at a combat outpost in Afghanistan (and got to fire the rifle pictured) certainly didnt go to look at what he had shot at on the mission in question, but then he is of course a Brit.
