    I came across these two .308 conversion rounds. They have no markings, but I've been told that they are military converters to fire .22 caliber rounds for training purposes. Can anyone shed some light on these rounds?
    Thanks in advance!

    Look like sub calibre devices to me. Designed to enable smaller calibres to be used as in training. I have seen others, for example for shotguns to fire pistol rounds. Are you sure they are .308s, the shoulder seems high.

    TranterUK,
    You're right. I thought they were .308, but they look more like 30.06. I was also told that these were sometimes used by the OSS for assassinations. Who Knows!:confused::confused:
