As I recall, those 1350 cans were really heavy and would two cans and a crate exceed a FedEx weight limit for home delivery?

This is good accurate ammo but if you see signs of rust on your can go through the bandoleers. One can of 84 I received had some rusted strippers and corrosion on the rounds. They looked ugly but scraping off the black the brass didn't have pink spots on all but 10 rounds. Sorting through all bandoleers it amounted to about 80 rounds. These will be shot first. None of the cans I received seem to have a good seal like the CMP LC did.

Sounds like its getting to the bottom of the pile. The Korean ammo is excellent ammo for your carbine. The .30 carbines had been in the Korean ready reserve for many years. Now its all the rifles in 5.56. The .30-06 did have a couple of bad lots all marked with the PS head stamp. The other ammo made by Korea is head stamped KA. It is excellent ammo over all with no defects BUT the primers are corrosive. The PS ammo is non corrosive.

IIRC, the cases were prone to split, so no one should be tempted to tear those down and save the cases.


Here's an example I found on the web:

Any thoughts? If it's really PMC and non-corrosive, it seems like a solid deal. The clips and banoliers are a bonus...

Best,

Default Korean Carbine Ammo

I sprung for a can from Widener's for just over $400 delivered. Looks to be in good shape. There was minor surface rust on can, the seal was sticky, and there was some very minor mustiness in the bandos which tells me some humidity, but the ammo looked great. I figured it would be appropriate to stuff a bandolier's worth in some Korean mags, and then shut it in with some silica packets. I hope to shoot it this week.

I just received a can on 3/26 from Outdoor Limited. Their price was $362.99 plus shipping and tax for a total of $410.84. Nice clean can with a good seal. 1984 headstamp. Has that wonderful ammo smell when it's opened. Now I have three times as much ammo as I'll ever be able to use!

They have increased their price to $399.99 since then.

I shot some this weekend I bought from from SGAmmo. It's gone up $20 since that purchase. Fired from two different carbines, an Underwood from CMP with excellent readings, and an Inland from CMP with a criterion barrel. Both rifles fired 10 round groups that held the 10 ring from a leadsled on a bench. I'll definitely pick up another can or two.

Just curious what the Korean headstamp is on this ammo.
I have some green 120rd bandoleer belts, 10rd on clips all with mag guides attached. The headstamp reads "81" on the bottom, then clockwise what looks like a roman numeral "XII" (or Ah with a line through the middle of the letters) then moving around there is "1" then "K I" . I can't find in anywhere i look except an old post here back in 2013 and no one had an answer.
