Ammunition query?
« on: July 31, 2009, 05:18:46 PM »
Tom Power Dublin Ireland,
Can anyone give me details on CBC ammunition. its headstamp reads "cbc 38 spl c". i assume the c stand for compact but i would like to be certain please.  The round of ammunition is close to 38 s&w in size.
Thanks all,
Tom Power

Tom,

without a picture it is always difficult.

The C on the primer is typical for factory loaded CBC cartridges.
The exact rason is currently not nown to me.
If the CBC is at the top it indicates a berdan primed case,
at the bottom it indicates a boxer primed case.

If you talk to Patrick Ennis at the Garda An Siochaná -  Ballistic Section in Phoenix Park he can certainly help you with the caliber identification. He has CartWinPro  :D

Greetings

Axel
