50 cal. casings found while hunting?

Anyone ever find any 50 cal. casings while hunting Wyoming for Antelope?, rumor is that military planes used Antelope for target practice during the war.
I found three and a link while hunting area 68

    I can't confirm or deny the target practice theory (sounds fun though). More than likely, it was a couple of good ole boys shooting their .50's with some cheap mil-surplus linked ammo. There are a LOT of .50's in Wyo....

    Interesting! I guess I too have to wonder where they came from...

    The head stamp is from the right time frame and by the looks of them they have been out there a while.
