Default Iranian 30-06

Hi, I have recently shot a 100 rounds of the Iranian ammo from Samco (1 week ago), in a DCM I.H. garand in pristine condition, and the ammo fired so clean the inside of the cases appeared almost unfired afterwards. The accuracy was so good I drug out my Oehler 35m chronograph and after 6 years in its box it
worked unsurprisingly perfect, showing the ammo capable of speed spreads of 2,699 f.p.s. to 2,745 fps out of 10 consistent shots. Folks, for 42 year old ammo thats good. The groups were from sandbag position as small as 1 5/8", at a private range over 57 yards.

Yes, can we get a photo or description of the headstamp?

suposedly we sold/gave alot of M1's to Iran. Maybe we should address this as a foreign policy issue. Maybe OBama can make the return of thes rifles a negotiating point in our foreign policy debate with Iran.....Maybe.

I wonder if that is still being done (I hope so!)

First time I seen this Video a few years back, that was the first thing that came to mind.

Samco has run out of their Iranian 30-06. I bought a 1,000 round case at $.55 per round that finally arrived after a month and now They have no more. They're out of 7mm Mauser too (7X57) as well as 7.5 Swiss.
