Found a neat piece of brass
Was at the range before deer season touching up the zero's and drop charts for some long range guns and found a neat piece of brass. There must have been another long range shooter there...or just some nut launching big, fast bullets at close range deer.
The parent case is the .340 Weatherby. But the shoulder has been blown out to a typical Ackley profile. The shooter also had a number stamped on the belt. This case happens to be stamped #"136". It was discarded/forgotten due to a seperation line at the web. I stuffed a 180gr NBT into it just for looks....and been handling it while wondering..."hmm...now THAT would be cool in a XP-100!!"
Anyhow...is this something as simple as a .340 Weatherby Ackley Imp or would it have an exotic name like the "Kahn" cartridges??
