Default What did I find

Date on head stamp says POF 66. and can says Berdan primed. Also must have been new math. Can said 112 rounds but it's 128 in BRW1 enblocs. $50.00
Will try to get pic's loaded later.

Okay found a thread on this. Seems to be all over the place as far as if serviceable in an M1 and weather or not it's corrosive. Worse case I'll pull down and salvage bullets and enblocs. Along with the ammo can it came in.
Thanks for the info.

The POF in 7.62x51 from the 70s and newer is definitely Non-Corrosive but the 30-06 from 66 may very well indeed still be corrosive. I am not too familiar with the POF 30-06. Maybe someone else knows for sure. I do know the POF .303 from the 50s that was sold a while back had very bad hangfires (makes me think it got wet or was poorly stored or just plain too old). Mid 60s ammo should be ok to shoot. For what it's worth, I did find one shooter on an older thread that tested 69 POF in 30-06 and it was definitely NOT corrosive.

I do have a ton of the 7.62 POF and hope to get more before too long. I have some from 75, a bit from 76, and a bunch of 77. It is great ammo for having fun at the range. Not match grade accurate but very decent. Just a bit of tarnish on the brass and somewhat on the dirty side but not more than most other milsurp ammo.

I would definitely shoot the POF 30-06 from 66 if it were me. Clean very well (gas system also), and soon after shooting (I use the water and Ballistol mix method then clean as normal) and you should be just fine.

I would treat it as corrosive just to be safe. Also, if it came in POF en blocs I would be interested in one to add to my display.
