BN 40# is the St Louis Ordinance Plant. This was apparently from the 1950s, and the plant name was omitted in favor of a code for the locations. AN 40# was the Twin Cities Ordnance Plant in Minneapolis, and CN 40# was the Lake City Ordnance Plant, in Independence, Missouri. All appear to have been manufactured in 1953 from what I can find. The “40” is not actually a date code, and was totally bogus.

I shot some of those black tips that are dated in the 70’s…. sadly none of the cases have tight enough primers. Going to be on a look out for some brass prep centers for us haha. Awesome video!

Like you, looking at the years on those head stamps makes me think of the time they were manufactured and the world stage they were manufactured for.
I can’t blame you for avoiding the wind. Great video Jerry!

Enjoyed your video Cuz…good work. You could use the help of a brass prep center. Better send Santa a note about that!

Good video Jerry. I ordered some military once fired 30-06 a couple of months ago and pretty much went through the same process to get them ready to shoot. I didn’t have any that old, it was mostly HXP. I enjoyed the video, take care.

Good job on bringing that old brass back., thanks for showing the steps you preformed to get it ready to reload. Waiting to see it put lead on target ๐Ÿ˜€. You hit the nail on the head with the comments about @thereloadersnetwork , headspace , and slack. ๐Ÿ‘
