    The T104E1 was on the FAT1E3 case and was loaded with the 7-ogive T11 bullet which was flat base 136 grain. It was loaded from 1949 until 1952. The T104E2 was loaded from 1953 until 1954. The M59 was adopted in 1955.

    Colonel Frank Hackley published a couple of very good articles in past issues of the IAA JOURNAL that detailed the Ordnance numbering systems throughout the years. A must-have if you want to even begin to understand what they all mean.

    Where can I get a copy of yours? Do you do email? I can send you copies of my notes also.

    Here are the two T104 bullets. The 104E1 T11 on the left and the 104E2 T21 on the right.

    Wow thanks guys,
    learnt more about them tonight than I have since I have had them.
    I have one more that has had me stumped for a while,if I may, it is a 7.92mm(I think you refer to them as 8mm Mauser in the U.S) blank,if not experimental it is an oddball! it has an open neck sealed with a red disc as used to be the norm from the U.S.A,the neck is stepped down and the headstamp is WCC 57,I can post photos of this one as I am in the middle of recording my collection,apart from a 5.56mm XM196 tracer that is my lot(so far) of U.S. experimental rounds,all the rest are English,bar a alloy Swiss 7.5mm.
    I do find experimental ammunition very intresting and well on the way down the slippery slope of collecting them.

    Cheers
    Tony

    That is a great box. I've never seen one with that particular label. Check out the velocity. 2800+ fps!

    Are you sure that blank cartridge is not a Cal .30 (30-06)?
