Got about 60 or so VC45headstamps out of a box I opened this afternoon. Based on the charts and forum discussions, may I assume these are corrosive??

Also, had one DM4 .... Anyone know anything about that one?

Thanks.

VC is Non-corrosive for all years
DM is corrosive for all years
Usually a single #, 4 or 5 or 6 on U.S. ammo indicates 1944, 1955, 1966 respectively, but not all lots used this system of numbering.

CMP did not delink any ammo. Contracvtors working for the Greek Army did the delinking in Greece. CMP staff does go through each can to pull out what is not M2 Ball - that's where we found this ammo.

I recently got an order of 200 M2 Ball in a Reeves Can. A few of the Rounds have a stamp of SC 45. Any guesses whose the manufacturer and if corrosive or not?

Smile Old GI Bore Cleaner

Is the old GI Bore Cleaner in the little metal cans[stinks have to use gloves or residue will be on your hands] i acquired a case of this many years ago made in the 50's will this clean my M1 after shooting corrosive primed ammo. I have a at least 300rds of 1940's and 1950's american GI 30cal[3006] also some Nat. Chinese 200rds. I hate to admit i am cheap i hate to throw this ammo in the scrap pile. Will do if i have to,ammo looks like new. I think i acquired it from the DCM years ago,and just getting around to going thru all my ammo[retirednow] Head stamps are SL,EW,FA,D,DM,TW,R.All that is in the 1940's. The NAT.Chinese is marked60A. is 1960.I hope i did not open a bucket of worms,Bill
