Any idea what this is?

Post by TheArmsman » Mon Jun 26, 2017 9:05 am

Forgot exactly how I got this. I know it is ammo, but not what type or caliber. It is completely sealed, no rust or holes in it.

Was wondering if anybody has seen an ammo can like this before.

Thanks in advance.

11.43 is probably foreign made .45acp.
There must be an end to this intimidation by those who come to this great country, but reject its culture.

Yeah, .45 acp ball in a brass case, held upside down with a Raytheon FD ruler for scale. :ugeek:

Is the ruler covering up another label that says "AKA .45acp"? :geek:

Send it to me. I'll open it and find out.
