I have about 50 pieces that came to me as part of an auction lot.

30-06 brass most stamped 62 LC match

https://photos.app.goo.gl/PGyDK3df5xAnaDMY7

at first glance it looks like 30-06 that I may have crushed in the press, but there are 50 identical pieces.

any help appreciated

I have not pulled any yet to weigh the bullet and powder. I will do that when I get back home.

Maybe 8mm-06 ackley improved. I will have have to scour my old reloading books for the specs. I haven’t been able to find a picture online.

Break them down, run them through a 30-06 die, good as new.

Indeed - Speer 8mm bullets are listed as .323.

You MUST pull any bullet to get an accurate measurement. Often the portion outside the case is a diameter meant to ride the lands and the full bore diameter of the bullet is hidden in the case neck.
