    I'll take those, if you find enough to be worth shipping. They ought to make perfectly good .350 Remington cases.

    Plus, I think they're probably once fired ... !

    A good friend bought a Mosin Nagant and it came with a bag-o-bullets, took it to the range and first round (lucky he only loaded one round) fired but stuck so bad he couldn't work the bolt. I started looking at the ammo and some were steel case and some brass, pulled the brass ones out and they were head stamped 30-30 and the bullets where crooked in the case. The length was wrong and the cannelure was showing and they were crimped so tight that the cases were buckled. He called the previous owner and was told "it's all the same and good ammo I made it myself"! OK, The bolt stuck because the chamber was fouled from I think corrosive ammo.

    While I didn't make the find.....very eerie! Many years ago ( around '84,I think), I was doing some Sunday shooting on a river bank where others did some shooting. As we were leaving I observed a new pick-up truck parked nearby, Louisiana summer day...occupant just sitting with windows down ( hot/humid). Several days later, two decomposing bodies were found just downriver from where I was shooting. Time of death, estimated to be Sunday night! The pick-up I saw belonged to one of the victims. Suspected drug related killing! memtb

    It might happen to me tomorrow, but not once in the 40+ years I've been shooting anything larger than a BB gun. No. I have not.
