I wonder if anyone knows the story of 30 Carbine ammunition headstamped LC 72 and 73?
This came in clips of 10 in bandoliers but the clips lack the usual adaptor to fit the clip to the lips of a magazine. The adaptor was issued seperately in a small pocket of the bandolier. The clip is a slightly smaller version of that issued with 5,56x45 and is marked ‘EL 8448480’;
This is quite a late date for 30 Carbine ammunition and I would guess that it was never delivered to its ultimate destination because a lot of it appears to have been sold off under the CMP a number of years ago.
Happy collecting, Peter
