Fine review, Al, and thanks for the shout-out. I just got a set of these, and was going to see if you wanted to review them. Any suggestions on where to come up with the boxes to put these on? Other than scratching them, that is, LOL!

Hi Bill,

Resicast, Compo Boxes and Biscuit Tins.

http://www.armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=Reviews&file=index&req=showcontent&id=3256

Pat McGrath review then some time ago. Don't know of anyone else doing a set, I think a few biscuit tins got issued by one of the manufacturers as part of kit stowage but can't remember who.

Same detail with the 105mm ammo, I believe it's still available, not sure about the bulk load though, check the Resicast site.

Cheers

Al
