This site is looking pretty good, lots of 40’s jars and bottles but some older stuff in there too, hopefully the older stuff will come out when I start digging. Found these two on the surface, the cartridge is German, made at Lindener Zündhütchen und Thonwarenfabrik in Hanover, May 1918.

No, Missouri. I figure it was most likely surplus given the rather late manufacture date, and the proliferation of Mausers as sporting rifles post-war. There was also a drill field nearby, and in an adjacent dump I’ve been finding US Army-marked toothbrushes (WWII era), so many possibilities
