I have a question about 30cal.(30-06) military ammo. I have just come across alot of 30cal in Grand clips and linked belt. I have red tips, orange tips, and black tips. I figure black is armor piercing and red is tracer. What is orange?pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/militiamedic2000/detail?.dir=ce53&.dnm=a657.jpg

Thanks for your help......Kevin

The majority is LC stamped there is some SL/LS and some TW. The funny thing about this whole thing is that i've been going through some of my grandpa's ammo. I found all this hiding in the bottoms of 30 cal cans. Something else I found was 800 rnd of 7.62 NATO blanks linked for M60.
