I have stuff in here I have't seen in 10 years. Uncovered an ammo can with 61 metal linked cartridges. No idea where I got them. The brass isn't shiney and they all seem to be primed but no powder or bullets. They measure: .463", necked to .337", and finally to .250". Overall length is 2.625". They are head stamped "LC89". Anyone know what these might be?

Thanks guys,

It's too late for me, save yourself.

LC89

Means Lake City Arsenal, 1989. They probably have what looks like a crosshair too, huh? Sounds to me like 7.62 NATO blank rounds, but I'd have to see a pic to tell you for sure.

It's alright I guess

I carried so much of that shit as a young infantry ammo bearer and AG for the M-60 that I could go without seeing it again. You think machine gunners like to melt barrels because it kills more people? Fuck no, they're doing it because their ABs and AGs are begging them to get rid of ammo so they don't have to carry so goddamned much.

Yeah, it is cool

to find shit you forgot you had. I'll never have that problem, because my wife is constantly reminding me of all the shit I have tucked away in different places. Who really needs 4,000 rounds of 5.56mm blank ammo? I don't, but I damned sure have it, and she makes sure I remember it.

Cool thing is, though, that she secured most of it for me in the first place.
