Hey guys, looking for the approximate value of some lake city .30 carbine ammo. I have 746 rounds. Various dated headstamps but all LC.

Thanks.

My guess is around .50-.60 cents for each round, .30 carbine ammo is expensive.

Check it with a magnet as there was some Chinese counterfeit LC 30 carbine floating around a while back.

Thanks for the help. I'll check into the magnet thing.

There was steel cased .30 carbine made in WW II and after. I assume you are talking about checking the bullet?

Yes, the counterfeit stuff was steel core.

Lake City brass in bandoleers can go for .30-.50 a round. Wolf steel case carbine ammo has effected price on the surplus ammo. It's $10 per box of 50.

Early 50's LC I recently got off Gunbroker very reasonable.

I think most of the chicom stuff was LC 52 headstamped (?)

I have no idea. I just remember learning about it when we had some stuff that was sparking when it hit the backstop. I am getting old and senile.
