25mm High Explosive Ordnance Round Steel and Afghan Sheesham Wood Ring

Its an interesting day when you receive a big box of (spent!) HEI round cartridges, both 25mm and 40mm, and wood direct from Bagram, Afghanistan. Of the various materials, the customer preferred I use the 25mm “…because of how that mission went down….”

Im looking to get the story behind these materials, but as he says “…I will have to see if I can declassify enough info to send out.”
