Did you see the crate for blank rounds that was on ebay the other week?
It was an interesting variation

No, missed that one!
Did you get a copy of the picture???

Sadly I can't remember how much it went for:x
I've a feeling it was in the US and the postage was fairly hair raising.
I erm... filed the pics cause I hadn't seen a blank box version before. 8-)

Interestingly it didn't contain standard .50 cal blanks.
T-prefixed ordnance was Trial (experimental), which may or may not have been accepted, whereupon it would be given an Mxx number.

All the best,

Managed to see Mr Spratt aka Mr Ragged and picked my Burl/FickleFinger made box up.

Really pleased with it and tonight I will be transferring all of my 50 cal rounds into it.

So that's my night sorted then.

Thanks guys looking forward to seeing a rake of these displaying at a show.

MIKE.

If it helps, I sourced a full set of repro early brass wingnuts, with the threaded stems from someone on the G503 forum. I guess it was around 3 yers back now, but could probably track him down if needed......
