I remember a few years ago I bought some black tip 30-06 ammo from sportsmans guide. I was wondering if the ol' black tips are still out there and where someone could find such an item?

I want to know as well

You can still paint the tips of your .30-06.

CMP's ammo is not AP ammo. (ETA: The black tip .30-06 ammo stormwalker asked for is AP)

I saw Black Tips and went into the handloading mode, sorry. See thread title.

It be black tipped M2 and steel core........ I've got 2 cases in the basement that say so

I've got some still linked up sitting in the basement. I believe you can get it from a demil company, Maine Cartridge Company is one that pulls, demills, and reloads it. Shoots OK, not great. Don't know if mine was demilled as it was still all linked up in the belt.

I'd love to try some of this stuff through my M1. I'll bet this would make quite a hole in steel plate...the kind that is usually painted WHITE with black writing on it.

not sure what white W/ black writting on it means, is it the ones where the drivers wear blue?

I guess that is the vagaries of surplus ammo - you never know what you will get. Mine isn't AP. So I guess the answer regarding CMP ammo is that you may or may not get black-tipped AP. There is no guarantee either way.
