thanks for reply.
okay edit time...you are correct sir. the not for combat use boxes were lake city, not twin city.
.....the bullets are boattail with no crimping grove. primers are not crimped in place. however I have swaged primer pockets and also cut out the crimp edge before and these cases show no signs of either.
......so who knows what the origins are. I might just pull it down and salvage the components. the weird color of the cases concerns me. thanks again bart, bobn
