Default Spam can identification

Went to an auction today to pick up a 1917 Enfield, but also got a Spam can of 30-06 pre-loaded into M1 clips. The one I got was un-opened, but they opened another one for display. I didn't even think to get a picture of the head stamp before I left. By the measurements there should be 240 rounds, 30 loaded clips.





This is the pic of the opened one.

That is Taiwanese. I opened one recently and it was on clips. The clips are marked with that same emblem you see on the can. The primer pockets on this ammo is overly large and does not lend itself well to reloading.

Thank you for the info guys, if/when I shoot it out of my 03 or 1917, I will be sure to clean it thoroughly.
