    Cartridge ID help - IVI 95

    Hi,

    I have a cartridge I've just acquired that I can't identify and I'm hoping another collector could assist me please.

    Headstamp IVI 95 (I know it's a Industries Valcartier Inc. / SNC-Lavalin (SNC Tec) - formerly Saint-Gabriel-de-Valcartier round), but I'm not sure what it is exactly. Does the '95' refer to year of manufacture? The fluting on the case could indicate that it is a training round?

    Approximate calibre (case dimension) is 19x100mm / .75 cal

    I know this one ...... ;-)

    Its a .50 Browning drill , made by Ordinance Developments Limited of Wanganui for the NZ Armed Forces. ODL is Belmont in a differant suit.

    Theres a bunch of headstamps out there - they use mil-surp cases , ran then through a body die to form the flutes so that even the dumbest recruit couldnt confuse it with a live round , then loaded a ball projectile and glued it in.

    I remember playing with the 7.62 and 5.56 versions when first learning how to use GPMG's and C9's on Basic. We had 20 round linked belts for doing loading drills

    Oops, and thanks :o)

    Dunno how I came up with .75 cal (I thought that the second measurement in mm was the diameter of the base of the case (19mm = 0.75"). Errrm, more research on my part required obviously).
    Laid it next to my .50 BMG and cases are the same; thanks for the intel - especially muzza!

    No worries mate - had a bit of a thing for ODL stuff when I was an active cartridge collector. Still have a lot of ODL stuff , including drill rounds.

    yes - but thats an English one , made with a whole lot more finesse than the ODL version.

    Drill rounds are a whole collectable range in themselves
