M1 carbine ammo


#1

I just acquired about 300 rounds of late WWII and into 50’s M1 carbine ammo. Is there anyone there who collects it and may want to trade?


#2

Normally only full unopened boxes of ball ammo; along with tracer, AP and Proof cartridges, are really collectable in 30 Carbine.
There is just far to much of this ammo out there.

Try pulling some of the LC 52 - It may be Chinese made rounds with faked headstamps described here. You can tell if it is the Chinese ammo if it is Berdan Primed. The Round stamped “IVI 69” Is Canadian, “FN 52” is Belgian, and “VE 2-63 S 7.62” is French (If you didn’t already know).
