FRANKFORD ARSENAL CAL .276 AMMUNITION. FULL BOX OF 20 LIVE CARTRIDGES. MANUFACTURED IN 1929. (Box Previously Opened) Original Red Stripe Box. HEADSTAMP FA-29. Good Condition. This Cartridge was Designed for both The Original Pattern M1 Garand Rifle (Experimental), and the Pederson Rifle (Experimental), (Not Pederson Device). The M1 Garand Rifle was originally designed for the Cal .276 Cartridge. As an Experimental Competitor to the Garand a number of PEDERSON RIFLES in Cal .276 were manufactured by Springfield Armory. I believe only two specimens of the Springfield Pederson Rifle Exist. ( One at the West Point Museum and the other at the Springfield Armory Museum). The British also manufactured a number of PEDERSON RIFLES for evaluation at the Vickers Armstrong Armament Factory in England. I Previously have owned three Vickers Manufactured Pederson Rifles, (two carbines and one rifle). Due to the Experimental and development nature of the .276 Cartridge a limited number were made and the majority of cartridges at the end of the Evaluation Program were Destroyed. Overall an extremely RARE ITEM.
