Hundreds of 300blk...

Went to the range today and some other people pointed out that someone dumped maybe 300–400 live rounds in the trash. Not the “live duds”.

I took a hat full, about 250 or so, and checked them out. Hold your panties for a second... I’m not shooting them.

I recognized one of the projectiles because I also tried some YEARS ago. They are 308 flat point... for 30-30... 150gr. Some are fmj BT but also 150gr.

Pulled 15, all same weights and all 14.4-15gr of an unknown powder. I’ve seen powder that looks similar to this and it’s probably “lil gun” but I’m dumping because it’s not safe to assume/guess.

However... for poops and snickers, I put them in a case gauge checker and I had a dog... who’s name was BINGO! Pull em and I get decent brass (300blk headstamp” and a bunch of plinking projectiles.

You're right, that powder could be any kind of flattened ball powder but the weight is in the ball park. I use 15.0 grains of Lil Gun with pulled 150gn FMJ for plinking loads for 50 yard rapid fire. At least you got some free bullets.
