Received this email a while ago I think comes from outside the group. Perhaps someone can help. They sound like practice rounds to me...

Anyone with information on a long belt ofmachine gun shells /rounds i recently found in an old farm house we are cleaning out. The year and size are unknown to me but these appear to be full rounds. they measure 2 1/2 inches long brass im guessing they have flat ends with a red color no point or rounded end to these . the letters on these are
L C 6 6 all spaced out around the shell . Anyone with any info on where or how I can find out something about these their age and so on please contact me or pass this on to someone who might be able to tell me something . Also in the area i found this I found several Inox switchblade knoves and Camillus knives plus many other shells i think 7 mm and alot more Please help thank you Helen

Sounds like they may be .308 or .30-06 blanks? Lake City 1966 Headstamp.
