    I don't know what the history of M1906 ammo was. Interesting https://forum.cartridgecollectors.or...1-and-m2/12690

    Shot a bunch of it when I was a kid. I don't remember what years but there was a bunch of 1918

    At one time US small arms ammunition was classified by its intended use, rifle, machine gun and aircraft. Here is an excerpt from TM 9-1901-1, dated 1957.

    "7. Grade of Ammunition
    a. Ammunition for 20-mm aircraft guns is not graded; all accepted
    lots thereof are serviceable for issue and use in all applicable- weapons.

    b. Due to the varying characteristics of the several types of caliber .50
    weapons, applicability of immediate action, and the location of the gunner
    relative to the weapon, caliber .50 ammunition is classifieds either grade
    AC or grade MG for purposes of identification, issue, and use.
    Caliber .50 ammunition lots indicating minimum or no probabilities of misfires or
    other malfunctions which may cause stoppages in remote 'weapons is
    classified as grade AC for use in aircraft and antiaircraft machine guns.
    All other ammunition lots within allowable specification limits are classified as grade MG
    for use in ground machine guns under the immediate, direct control of the gunner."

    The rifle classification was by this time semi obsolete as manually operated bolt action rifles (most tolerant of inconsistent ammo)were no longer in general use.
