    $245/800rds 30Carbine

    Bought a couple cans of the stuff from marstar, they're calling it 'grade 2 dirty', I already have a ammo can of dirty surplus 30carbine and never had a misfire from that stuff, so hopefully this marstar stuff is at least as good.
    It's marstar but I had to. I have to try it!

    "Mixed Head stamps" says a lot. Kind of pricey for ammo with limited uses too.

    It's half the price of any other 30carbine ammo available, but guys on cgn said it might be corrosive stuff, which leaves out anything the US produced

    Ive been working on a crate sunken barge 30 carbine ammo. Forget who makes it. Bunch of mixed headstamps. Get a dud in a handful.

    Maybe South American.

    They couldn't confirm the headstamps and cancelled the order for me. With surplus 30carbine I ordered thinking american surplus(none which was ever corrosive).

    I wasn't aware that there was such a thing as corrosive 30 carbine. Thanks for the tip/warning

    Stuff I got is Dominican Republic. They say it corrosive according to my research. But barrel, bolt or anything else doesn't show that. Just a lot of copper fowling.

    Well hell, at least one of my surplus stuff is RD marked as well.
    People on the internet seem to hate the stuff, I haven't fired much of it but it always seemed ok.

    The milsurp match I did last spring, I had 2 in 50rds. I'll get a few in a sitting. But it was the best price... FREE... I must have about 500rds on hand.
