I Had Thought 12 Gauge Sabot Slugs Were Cool...

...and then I saw this:

Now that is cool.
It is reportedly a saboted armor piercing tank round and it sure looks like it might be able to penetrate some fairly thick armor. Nice find by the jogger who found it along the banks of the Susquehanna River in Harrisburg, PA. More at the source. There is a PA National Guard base in Harrisburg and that would be my guess as the source form this round. Of course, that is just my guess but how it might have gotten there otherwise is a mystery to me.

All the best,

ft. indian town gap tank firing range. they shut it down a few years ago bc the rounds were ricocheting over the Appalachian trail. btw, don't touch it. it could be a dp penetrator, depleted uranium. radioactive as all heck.
