And that would make sense. Is there a log of any kind in the Ammo Box? Maybe a signature of Cachers that have found it would help figure out where it belongs.... If anywhere.

If that’s the case, then the owner of the ammo can probably collected the shell in China and then added it to a geocache here in the States. This would imply that the geocache was simply assembled but never placed—or that it was removed from its hiding spot in Colorado. Either way, it most likely belongs to a local geocacher. This scenario only holds if it is the shell with the coordinate and not the can but it seems more plausible. > > Seth! > ________________________________ > From: Seth!
