Yes, much thicker fabric and much more durable than U.S. bandoleers. No issues with the snaps. The Aussies re-used these bandoleers, just marking a new ammo lot number on them each time they were reloaded. These bandoleers, quite literally, will last nearly forever.

I have five of these. They are great, much better than USGI or any other that I've found.

I bought several cases of the Aussie 7.62 made in 1983. All the ammo is packed in 50 round bandos and strippers. The markings indicate that the bandos were originally packed with .303 British ammo, so the 7.62 was a repack. Without getting too slobbery over bandoleers, the ones I have are great.

I have a couple sealed 200 rnd cans of '83 F4. I opened one can to check it out and the bandloeers are brand new. Thick as denim with good strong snaps and brass or steel rings. I have a bunch of F4 in M80 bandos that don't even compare.

The reason it doesn't attract a magnet, it's old fashioned ammo with a copper jacket and a lead core. (Just like Davey Crocket used to win all his matches).

My LC 67 can't be used on a public range. I'm an old shooter and know why, just thought it could help somebody.GBERET5 If my memory is correct, the red flash is 7th Group, not 5th. Airborne!

Sir, the icon suggested SF5 with a red flash.

Ours had a black flash with diagonal red and yellow stripes until after 'Nam, then we went pure black. Thank you. Cos
