    30mm Aden HV load stamp query.

    When did British loading facilities stop stamping the cartridge load type on the 30x111B Aden belts? (eg. PRAC 4Z).
    I have a fired case with the following stampings.(GD = Glascoed,Wales). I realise that 1950's loads did not have the load types on the belt.

    Groove is stamped: J. 30.MM.RG.01
    Belt is stamped: 01 GD 006

    Is the 30mm Aden HV still loaded and made in UK? Is my case Lot 6 loaded 2001 (usually the date is as the end).
    Or is it lot 1 from 2006. Maybe old cases only loaded when needed?

    Ron,

    I can't see any reason why would use three numbers instead of two for the date. So I would go for Lot 6 of 2001.

    30X111B Aden.jpegHere is the photo. Surely somebody has a 2000+ Aden or information on stampings.

    The date, as suspected is 2001.
    J.30.MM.RG.01 - type J case, manufactured at Radway Green 2001.
    The filling I can't add anything more to - filled in 2001, at Glascoed, lot 006. Not sure when the filling type was discontinued from the belt stamp.
