Anyone have any experience with this ammo? It is $230 (shipped) for 960 rounds of delinked M2 30.06 ball, from 1962-1972.

Anyone know if it is worthwhile?

Here's the link.


Thanks, and Semper Fi

Can't seem to get the hotlink to work! http://estore.odcmp.com/store/catalog/catalog.aspx?pg=product&ID=405&item=&sfv=&cat=AMS&desc=&udc=&mct=&vndr=&ba=&pmin=&pmax=¬e1=¬e2=¬e3=¬e4=¬e5=&max

Its US GI Lake City ball good stuff, delinked means some scratches on the cases. Maybe not match quality but good ammo. I have some 68 and 69 squirreled away for a rainy day.

The Greek is more accurate.

In true ARFCOM form, get both!

How have you found that Greek ammo? They say 5-15% is corroded, or messed up. What was your experience?

The Greek I got from CMP was 1969, lot #40.

It was 100% top quality, no corrosion whatsoever.

It really does shoot a touch better than the LC I got from CMP.

The LC looks a little shop-worn. The Greek looks brand new. I did not get the clipped Greek, mine came in 20rd cardboard boxex in 2 spam cans.

Both the LC and Greek are fine.

Have you purchased the clipped Greek ammo? I'm thinking about buying a case of that, but I'd like to know if anyone bought any and found it coroded, as the CMP website says you can expect 10% or so of it to be bad.
