30M2 60 headstamp?


#1

Taiwan arsenal 20? I thought they stop producing 30-06 in 1949? Projectile is magnetic. Red neck seal and primer annulus.

Joe,

Could be Dominican Republic. Per Chris Punnett’s book .30-06, page 61. Brass primer & red primer annulus were typical and the letters “R D” (designation for Armería F. A. San Cristóbal, San Cristóbal, Dominican Republic according to the IAA headstamp guide) were removed from the headstamp starting in 1960 (until 1963) leaving the “30M2” designation at the 12:00 position and the last two numerals of the year at the 6:00 position.
