Default M1 Clips with two circles, one inside the other

and six "spokes" connecting the two circles. Kind of looks like the rachet on a double action revolver. Any way, I just opened a spam can that I got from Century Arms about 10 years ago, no markings on the outside of any kind except said emblem embossed in the lid. I didn't know if it was 06 or 303 brit. It is 06, in clips with 60A, 30, and 62 on the head stamp. 150gr flat base non-magnetic bullet, 47.9 grains of short extruded powder, boxer primed case, slight crimp on primer pocket with red annulus sealant. According to one source, the International Ammunition Association (I think that is the name) it is made in Tiawan at the 60th Arsenal. This the one on Wolfies M1 clip page that was listed at the bottom as unknown. It was linked off the old forum and I can't find an email address to wolfies or any way of adding to his data base, but here is the info for what it is worth.

Ammunition produced by Nationalist China(Taiwan).60A is the producer factory code,30 is the caliber,and 62 is the year produced.It is corrosive.Presumably the clips were also produced there.I used to have a link on this stuff but can't locate it right now.EDIT Here's a link http://www.100megsfree4.com/airground/ammo/taiwanes.htm

I shot several cans of that stuff in the late 80s. Good shooting ammo. Altho it's boxer primed, you can't reload it. The primer they used is bigger than US primers (which will fall right out). The clips work great.
