Default 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?

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.

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

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

Actually in the sixties, Iran was one of our staunchest allies in the middle east. Remember the Shah of Iran? Iran used to be part of NATO if I remember correctly, when the Shah was in power. Maybe Iran even had a bunch of M1 Garands loaned to them from the US Army back then?

Rumor has it that they received a lot of IHCs. Doubt if we'll ever see those again!!
