This is'nt my "normal" type of post, but was going threw dads war memo.s and ran across these. I was missing talking to, & B.S.ing with him so i pulled out his stuff. Not only was it cool, but brought back a VERY nice memory of going deer hunting with him & my cousin in the early 70s. We had 30-06s & just before dark he pulls out some tracer rounds. I'de never seen them before & wanted to shoot them then, he said no, let's what till dark, so we did. MAN was that COOL! We spent several days hunting,but that was the high-light. Went deer hunting with him for probably 8 years straight, never got a deer, did'nt care either, was fun just being with him. (he taught me never to take a bad shot, so i never did). Im not sure if these are 30-06 rounds, there marked F..A..51, they appear to be the right size (approx.) but dont know for sure. He brought back many things from WW2, including 2-30-06 Springfield rifles, but these tracer rounds are worth more than you could imagine.(to me).Dads still hanging on at 90, but alzhimers is taking it's toll on his memory, but not mine, thank you dad.
