    The first three batches of 30-06 Danish ammo I ordered came in bandoleers and en blocs. The last batch came in original Danish 30-rd boxes, with the following markings. (Legends are printed in black ink; items within < > are stamped with purple ink):
    ====================================

    Anyway to tell the bullet weight from the above?


    Thanks!

    Additional information:

    I bought this last batch from SurplusAmmo. According to them, as well as the previous I have bought (more recent ammo dates) from other vendors, they are supposed to be 150 gr. I just wondered if this information is provided by the legends on the box.

    By the way, the top of each box also says, in red printed letters:

    =============================
    ADVARSEL!
    ,,Ma kun anvendes 17,62 mm GV
    M/50 og 7,72 mm GV M/53 (17)"*
    =============================

    My copy of Peter Labbet's book "Military Small Arms Ammunition" says that Dutch M/48 ball is identical to US M2 ball, so it SHOULD be 150-grain FMJ with a flat base. HTH.
