    1500 rounds .30-06 on the main street....

    Sometimes it doesn't need a detector. Just a front yard and a pole for a new fence. I was called by a neighbor for help and this came out...
    6 Boxes of banded .30-06 for the M1919 Browning Machine Gun. Every 4th is a tracer. These were probably lost during Allied advance in Feb. 1945. EOD picked them up.


    Here is a crew on a pic shot 25 mls away from here.

    Wow! Better than finding hand grenades, or other large explosives. Reminds us to use caution in our quest for treasure.

    My dad was a gunnery instructor for quite a few years in the Royal Navy. He still swears the browning was the best and still is. Great find.

    Do you take them apart and save the brass/copper for scrap? Be careful with the tracers! Good luck.
