The Russians ordered some 3 million of these from Remington and Westinghouse. They of course were unable to pay for all of them. The American Taxpayers had to buy these up for $30 bucks each. Remington and the British owned Westnghouse would have shut down. The U.S. Military used these for Natl. Guard Etc. I have seen these marked U.S. Property with the Ordinace Bomb markings. Many of these were rechamabered to 30-06. In the 1920s they were sold off for $3 dollars each.
