I was last stationed in Korea in 94 I believe. In the summer we had ROK national guard troops come up our mountain to do maintenance work on trenches and fighting positions. They were all armed with a mixture of garands and carbines. So even in the 90's at least there was still a need for carbine ammo.

I got a flyer from Midway USA this week and they have the stuff with nicer photos of the cans and labeling. Downside is they want 499.99 per can so SG is way better on pricing.

I ordered from SGA last night. It was too good a catch to pass up.

These rounds are packed on “old style” strippers; each one has its own “spoon” permanently attached. LC in the late 60’s/early 70’s used a “new style” stripper that looks amazingly like a 5.56mm stripper (but isn’t at all interchangeable), and the bandoliers came with one spoon per.

This is a picture of the “old style” strippers:

Default Ordered my 2nd can after

yesterday's range visit. My carbine loved this ammo. And funnily enough, I tested all my suspect magazines on a hunch, they all worked flawlessly. I don't know if this ammo is hot, but it was accurate, clean and even smelled good.

Mine arrived with the same packing. Makes me wonder if you ordered two cans maybe it would come in the complete wood crate?

Finally got out to try some today, shot well with good accuracy at 100 yards.
I would say it was a good purchase at .38 cents a round with the bandos, ammo box and strippers included.

OT, but Korean .30-06 came in 5-10 years back... Plenty of issues with several lots of bad ammo. People guessed the Korean Army tossed the bad stuff into a surplus sale and of it went. No such comments about the Korean Carbine ammo.

In contrast, I bought a can (1080 rds.) of carbine ammo from CMP in 2000. It is Lake City and packed in newer style stripper clips with a spoon in one pocket of each bandoleer. I just found the receipt for it and I paid $173 for the can. Like about 16 cents per round. Wish I had bought a few more.

I ordered two cans and asked for the crate, if possible. When I received the ammo it was in two separate boxed cans. Not a big deal.

Fired very well at the range.
