For those of you who purchase your M1 Garand food from the CMP, I got the following e-mail from them today regarding the clipped 30-06 ammo they sell:

CLIPPED .30-06 AMMO SOLD OUT: We project that our item 4C3006X215-192P, (192 rounds of.30-06 ammo in clips and bandoleers) will sell out in the next week or two. The only HXP ammo we will have for sale is 4C3006X000-200P (200 rds of .30-06 ammo loose in .30 cal ammo can) for the next few years. New manufacture commercial .30-06 ammo is also available.

Get it while you can....

Bad for newer M1 shooters but most of us have a lifetime supply of clips. We just keep reloading them with new/reloaded ammo.

The last time I bought CMP ammo I went to the North Store and bought one of those big steel spam cans of 1200 or 1300 rnds that weighed right at 100 lbs. Fit right down in the storage space at the rear of the IROC for the trip nome.

You can also buy clips here and there on the internet. Just reuse them. I don't think they wear out.

I did this a few times when it was 25 cents a round for the crated ammo cans of bandoliers of clipped ammo.

I knew it couldn't last forever.

I think most of this sold when zero was elected. One hell of a salesman!

Not sold out completely. Once the loose ammo in c.30 cans supply is also exhausted they will start selling Spam cans again
Orest has talked about it several times. Sounds to me that they are cleaning house

I was already planning to place an order soon. I received that email also and tried to order a can this morning. In my cart, it showed that my order exceeded the available quantity and would be placed on backorder. I hope a previous poster is correct and this is just a way of cleaning house.

It is gone. Placed an order and got the "B" for backordered :(

I was able to order 3 cans with no issues. Two nights ago I added 3 cans to my cart but didn't finalize the order until this morning. It didn't give me any back order status or anything.
