    Help identifying 30-06 Ammo

    I have two rounds of 30-06 that look a lot like the bullet of M855A1. This is older ammo from a great uncle that died 20 years ago. I was thinking he might have brought the rounds back with him from WWII but they do not have a date code on the Brass. Brass says 30-06 Sprg REM-UMC. I First thought armor piercing round but the ones I’ve seen in 30-06, 308, 50 bmg are painted tips.

    Could this be just a ballistics tip round but instead of a plastic tip they used a steel tip due to technology?

    Looks like a Remington accutip boat tail factory load. The only thing is that Remington hasnít used the umc logo for some time( like 1970). Itís usually just the r-p stamp. It could be a reload using old remmy brass with the accutip bullet. Are the tips metal or plastic like material? If metal they are probably Remington bronze tips factory loads from the 1930ís thru the 50ís. This would make sense with the umc headstamp. Itís hard for me to tell what the tip is made from with the pic Iím looking at. Hope this helps.

    Edit: Doug beat me to it, yes bronze tip.


    Someone on Imgur identified the bullet. It’s a Remington Bronze tip. The quick research it did says Basically a lead free design of its time and is comparable to a ballistic tip (steel instead of plastic). Could be from 1920-1960 but Remington stopped manufacturing this round because it was “armor penetrating” with the steel tip.

    I was hoping it had a little more history behind it since he was in WWII and family found this while cleaning his house when my great aunt died.

    The tip was bronze not steel, bullet had a lead core and tip caused it to expand faster so not AP. Not sure when they quit making them but they are still on the Midway website.
