Someone asked me the following question:
He is “trying to figure out when a given kind of ammuntion-- Remington-Peters .30-06 military ammunition with an RA55 headstamp-- would have become available to the general public. In other words, when would this ammo be released as military surplus for sales (to civilian shooters)?”
I have never given this much consideration. Is (or was) there a process or regulation for culling out older ammunition to release onto the surplus market?
