    I found them on the property of an old dominion arsenal range in ontario where they built the lee enfield in ww2 i thought DM was the dominion arsenal head stamp i could be wrong tho. Also are 30-06 rounds 6.5cm tall? I have no idea ive never found these size rounds before.

    30-06 rounds are known metrically as 7.62x63mm...Dominion rounds would be marked DA 42.....Pete.

    Thanks pete that makes sense because i even found some 9mm made by Winchester repeating arms
    In the same area so it seems American ammunition was common on this facility. Interesting.
