    There never was a wooden bullet blank of US manufactured for the M1 Garand or the .30 US cal. machineguns.. They always used the Model 1909 blank ctg. with a blank adaptor/ gas restrictor.... Here are some US model 1909 blanks manufactured at the Lake City Arsenal... The link below will take you to a great site on 30/06 US .30 Cal. ammo it will answer all questions...BILL

    Hi Bill, I guess this clears my doubts! By staying the ground, the cases must have lost the wax and so they were empty.This lead me to think they must have had a wooden bullet. here are some pics (the one in the picture is from 1947, but US troops were stationed here until 1954).

    Hi Bill, thank you!
    the woods around here are littered with such cases. I'm hunting for better prizes (buttons, badges) but these little guys give me an hard time digging all the time.
