Default Interesting Find

Read that others were receiving LC ammo in their cans of HXP in Clips so I thought I'd take my chances and ordered a couple of cans. They arrived today and the first can I opened contained all LC 57 in vintage USGI clips!! Success!!
As I was removing the clips from the bandoleers, I came across this one:









Would love to know the story about this!! Also wonder how this clip managed to get loaded without someone noticing this!!

Sorry about how fuzzy the last two are. One of these days I'll take the time to learn how to use the macro function on my cameras!!

I must say that that is very interesting. It could not have been over looked buy the loader,unless it was done by a machine. I get a image in my mind of a company of soldiers on the firing line and as one shooter finishes his eighth round ,the clip ejects into the line of fire of the next man. Probably not but fun to think about it. Eddie

Wondering- (just a theory) that possibly during the automated loading process one of the enbloc clips got jammed up in the loading machine and then a round punched a hole through the clip?

Yes, I know it has what looks to be like a perfectly round "exit hole" like it was shot at...but I wasn't aware enblocs were recycled into fresh products at the ammo plants. However I suppose it is quite possible this is repacked ammo and enblocs were reused... Interesting pic nevertheless.

Enblocks were definitely recycled/reused. Can't be sure that this is a bullet hole, but that's the only thing that makes sense to me since it's through both sides.

Were clips loaded by hand or machine?

I'm assuming machine. Can't believe a person would try to load that clip.
