    what kinda rounds are we talking about here rumple? i recently picked up 768 Greek HXP rounds which are supposedly delinked machine gun ammo.

    the other option from the CMP is Lake City ammo but I haven't heard all good things about that stuff either...

    So, do you know who made it, where and when it was made?

    Actual US made ammo from WWII. I think he said it is still packed in the original springfield armory clips.

    Can get $40+ a bandoleer from M1 collectors. No corrosion on ammo.

    is it safe to shoot because German 8mm rounds from WWII is known to have corroded cases on the inside.

    Who the fuck would shoot US WWII Springfield armory ammo?

    My dad has a couple boxes of Nazi marked 8mm rounds, and the bullets are worth a couple bucks a piece

    We already have 960 rounds of 70s us shit that we use in our M1s

    Fuck that. You'd never see me pay $40 for a BS bandolier and some ammo.:rofl:

    Hell I'm still trying to shoot all the 1943-1944 Denver Ordnance Plant 30-06 I have. The pink defect cards make good fire starters BTW along with the inserts.
