Yep. All modern aircraft keeps its casings. A-10s, gunships, F-series craft.

The initial M61 used linked, belted ammunition, but the ejection of spent links created considerable (and ultimately insuperable) problems. The original weapon was soon replaced by the M61A1, with a linkless feed system. Depending on the application, the feed system can be either single-ended (ejecting spent cases and unfired rounds) or double-ended (returning casings back to the magazine). A disadvantage of the M61 is that the bulk of the weapon, its feed system, and ammunition drum makes it difficult to fit it into a densely packed airframe.

Question for everyone or anyone that knows. What can I apply to the already polished casings and bullets to keep their polish over years, I am certain they will oxidize over time. A clear coat? a certain type of wax?

Unless you have access to A-10s all you will get is brass. Stuff still looks great.

These are pretty cool, i would like one as well. They are for his fellow pilots.

I might be getting a casing, but not a complete one
Was there a body of water on the range? You could definitely get some perfectly intact rounds that way

Yes otherwise they tend to fall on things that shouldn't have things falling on them.

Ejecting casings would be like airliners ejecting poop from the bathrooms.

EITHER WAY..

Awesome refinishing job man. I'd love to have a couple

These are not your shitty handgun bullets.
BTW, what is the material the bullets are made from?

I too love the F105 Thunderchief (the thud).
It is featured in my favorite Dogfights episode.
