I was issued a blue flat top in boot camp.
Never got to wear it as they changed the rules and the white hat was to be worn with dress blues. Too many guys getting hit by cars while hitch hiking.

As for load data: You have to be careful and know which model you have. I can't stress that enough. The older 3 screw MKII-A "Navy" model, you're limited to 672 pounds of gun cotton with a 2100 pound projectile. For the larger MKII and MKIII "Army" models, produced after Elmer Kieth demonstrated the true potential of the gun, can handle up to 832 pounds with a 2340 pound projectile.


But be careful, if it has a red emblem it will cost you four times more than if it's black. Estimate based on a pre-Christmas trip to a local gun store.

Chief I had one of those hats as well and never got to wear mine.

Wade

At the battle of Agincourt, Henry the 5ths archers, defeated the French calvary, when the battle was over they listed the casualties, so many killed with sword, arrows and one poor soul that was killed with a "gun stone", as I recall the shooter was named "Wade", you know anything about that..?..:)

Wounded.... baking in armour ... unable to move. slowly
painfully, dying....... they didn't hang the British
archers thumbs in the market place after all....

Still despite that the gun replaced the bow for most
uses...

In reality it was not the archers that won the battle it was the weather, the ground was muddy and the heavy armoured knights and horses got bogged down, the archers probably killed more knights with their hammers, that they carried to drive range stakes, than with arrows.

Most likely another case of history being written by the victors.

Actual arrow heads unearthed at the battle site were made of iron, the French knights wore steel armour, those iron bodkins would not penetrate steel armour.
