    milsurp 30-06 ammo sale

    I see Midways has a sale on milsurp 30-06 ammo. Korean manufactored, linked ammo, some lots corrosive, some not. Should be good for use in Garands, etc, vs some
    commercial ammo which can cause damage. Don't know much about Korean ammo, but for what it is worth here is the link

    Mike, I am not seeing much surplus 30-06 anymore that is decent. I was buying it thru CMP, but they ran out and the last couple of cans looked like it came from the bottem of the barrel.
    I am not sure what a good price is?? From what I was paying for the CMP ammo and considering that was a while ago, I thought this didn't seem too bad price wise.

    I have used some of the PS stamped stuff and it was pretty good and non-corrosive. Accuracy was OK out of my bolt gun. However, I was really shooting for the brass.

    The KA stuff I have never tried but, as I understand, is corrosive.

    Yep! It sure is. I have a can in the locker that I bought when it was selling for 60 or 70 bucks a can.
