Yes, all the USGI 30 carbine ammo was non corrosive.

There was some corrosive Chinese carbine ammo with the copied headstamp LC52. The stuff I have seen was packaged in 50 rd. white boxes with LC52 stamped in red ink on the outside.

There is also corrosive French carbine ammo.

Vietnam 66-67
At the big ammo dump in Cam Rahn Bay, the crates were just stacked up in a bare area with no jungle, and left to sit out in the rain. Between piles was jungle growth to keep the piles from reaching each other in the event of an explosion. Vegetable revetments. The weather was as extreme as you can get, high heat pouring rain. That's the way the Army did it. Most fun was having a 3'-4' monitor lizard come out and chase us onto the bed of the Deuce.

I have seen the Chinese copy stuff in the brown boxes with 7.62 stamped on the outside. That was the only markings on the box.

I am still working with the seller.

Down to $350 per 600 can and they are on clips/bandos.

Is that a good price?

I don't plan on opening it or shooting it.
