Default *Pics* What Ammo is this? *Pics*

I stopped in a Gun store I never usually go to because the owner is a jerk lol, anyway i guess hes trying to win back my business or screw up my garand. He gave me a box of this stuff for free. He said he only had one box and that someone gave it to him. Who makes this and is it corrosive? I got my first garand 2 weeks ago and am hoping to get out to the range soon but am hesitant to put these through it. Thanks

PS garnad pics for enjoyment i got a nice one right out of the box.

I think Korean Army, Pusan Armory, non-corrosive and OK for the M1 Garand.

Korean PS M2 ball non-corrosive.That should be good to go.Some reports of case head seperation on the early production run.I have used about 300 rounds with know issue and decent accuracy.

Do a search on the forum under Korean M2 Ball,should come up with a list of suspect case lots.

Nice looking rifle and good score on the free ammo!

Got 1 enbloc full of M2 AP from my boss a while back. ANY free ammo is a nice score. : )

Inspect it carefully before shooting. Defective PS cases had visible defects around the primer pocket and case head prior to firing--very dangerous. And don't put much stock in lot numbers--nobody here really knows anything about how that ammo was made. Good Shooting.....

I've always been told that Korean M2 with a KA headstamp is corrosive. Is this different stuff?

This ammo was sold by the CMP about 10 years ago, the PS head stamp. It is Korean. I have fired well over 2 thousand rounds in my garands. Only a few FTF's. No other problems that I noticed. I still have a few boxes left.
