Article about: Vamp Oh I am sorry my friend....I didn't notice you'd already told us ! <-----blushes and says sorry to the screen. If the headstamp says RA 41 then it is definitely a 30-06 made in 1941,

    Pictures are useful but we're missing something vital here.

    Give the base of the cartridge a damn good scrub and let us know what the headstamp says. You can measure it all you like, the headstamp is the key here.

    Is this what the HS looks like?The 30-06 case is 6.3cm long,so I think this is what you have.

    the neck looks too long on that pic to be it, it has a short neck on it the casing looks to be oversized compared to the neck and neck taper.
