.30 Carb. Help


#1

Against my better judgement I might have just been talked into collecting .30 Carbine ammo. At least I will find some rounds at shows for a while. Does anyone have a check-list or “known rounds” list that they can send to give me an idea of what’s available? I’m not sure if I want to collect all or just military, just non-US or US also.
Thanks in advance, and no jokes from the peanut gallery!

bahahahaha…

There are lots out there… Let me know if you want an assortment of military ones :)

No idea on a list… many countries make them… you will have to decide where you want to go with it… I have the “crow” approach. Collect anything that’s shiny …

I have an 9-page list given to me a few years ago by another IAA member. I will email you with his name.

Thanks.
I just went through my table stock, and after removing any commercial rounds, I now have a .30 Carbine collection of 21 rounds!

Hi Jon
This a list of what I have for my collection, all are of US manufacture no foreign. I don’t know how many I’m still missing, hope this helps.

Yowzah, I have a long way to go. Should keep me busy for a while.
Thanks.
