A question
« on: November 07, 2015, 11:39:47 AM »
Hello,
Recently I sort of inherited 8 rounds of 30-06 from a friend, who is no longer around to ask.  He was an FFL and former Deputy Sheriff.

These rounds look similar in overall dimensions to the classic "silvertip" of long ago, yet the "tip" is a gold-ish hue, not silver.

The base reads "W-W Super" and of course "30-06".

Here's a pic.

Anyone recognize this bullet?

Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight, and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be.  One hundred percent and then some.

Well, I dunno...
All I ever use is my own handloads, and some G.I. stuff for practice.

Sorry.

ok...thanks.

I used one of these rounds the other day when I went up to the range for sighting in purposes.

It behaved most admirably, I must say.
Just wondered.

They are probably silver tips that have somehow decayed into "gold anodized" tips.

Anyway, I like em.

Memory says there is a Winchester Super-X round in several calibers. May be one of those.

Hi,
Someone suggested to me that my friend who had these mystery rounds MAY have hand loaded Remington Bronze Point bullets into W-W brass.

I Googled those bullets, and sure enough they look just like what I have.

Here's a link to Google images...

See what you think.

I confess, I've never heard of these projectiles, I don't think.

As Tonto would have said, "Patience OldRanger" . . . .

Ha!

What is this "patience", of which you speak?

Reminds me of a poster I saw back in....uh...somewhere back there.

Two vultures sitting side by side, and one of them says something like, "patience my ... I'm gonna kill something."

Also reminds me of a picture of Ronald Reagan, apparently speaking from Heaven, with the caption that reads..."Don't MAKE ME come down there!"

Anyways, happy Sunday!

I'm all better now.  Was having fits wondering what kind of projectiles these are!

Lord, grant me patience. And, I want it right NOW!

Unfortunately, my Ballistics sources do not incorporate images. But, it looks like you are on the right track.

I am glad that they performed well for you.  However, if were to hunt, I would go with a properly sighted-in and known round (of your own or OTC ammunition).  But, of course, you already knew that.  ;D
The fact that the GOVERNMENT would even consider removing the natural right to bear arms is the very reason why the 2nd Amendment was written.

Yes, I agree.
Besides, I hate to shoot them all up, as they're so pretty and all with those bronze tips!

I suddenly had this image of you all hunkered over the ammunition saying, "It's mine. All mine!" while polishing each round lovingly by hand.  ::)

Uh...I must have had my computer camera on!

How'd you know I polished them?

Ohhhh I'm more predictable than I thought!
