Iranian 30-06
Well it looks like some Iranian 30-06 ammo somehow made it into the US. It looks like it was made in the mid 1960's and is reported to be non corrosive. Has anyone shot this ammo or heard anything about it?

Mid 60s? "frendly" Iranian bullets....

My 01 dealer gets a lot of flyers and catalogs and since he knows I shoot surplus 30-06 he showed me one with Iranian 30-06 listed. It was a good price if you buy 2,500 or 5,000 rounds. I don't remember who had it listed but I can call him and ask.

Please get us details.

Check out this. 22 cents per round if you buy 2500 rounds, otherwise it's not a good deal.

Does "bredan" primer make it not easily reloable in the states

Guys: Don't get all excited. I just got off the phone with Samco and it's a misprint. It should read 1000 rds instead of 2500. DARN

Captured ammo? I thought Iran is on the Ban List.

Ahh, bummer. I was going to buy some if it was that cheap, but since it's priced more than HXP, I'll pass. If anyone here does buy some, though, I'd like to buy a few rounds to have in my collection--especially if it has Arabic on the headstamp.
