Your lot was reported to have mostly USGI from a previous post!

Couldn't resist. Among others older and newer, received one can of 4039-72 yesterday so I opened it. Mix of USGI clips and two of the bandos have blacked out panels that I'm trying to read the printing through (reprinted HXP lot no. on another panel). Clearly re-purposed bandoleers.

When HXP changed the type of extractor cut on their 30 06 ammo from an M2 style to a 7.62 NATO type cut they quit using USGI clips. As previously mentioned, this happened in '72.

Someone (I can't remember who) drew up this illustration a few years back:



The JMO clips work, as long as you limit them to the brass with which they're designed to work.

Edlmann, Thanks for reposting that. The diagram explains a lot!

I received the same as oldradiostuff. 4039-72 all with old USGI clips and bandos. Score!

Do the late 1970's L&H enblocs have the same issue as the JMOs or are they closer to USGI?

Checkout this picture of various extractor grooves on .30-06 ammo.



Yup....it's not my photo.

Aloha, Mark

While we're on the subject, here's a post I made back in the spring on the extractor grooves that is relevant.

I just pulled a PPU case along with two HXP, '70 and '82. From left to right: PPU, HXP70, and HXP82. It's well known that the later HXP has a thicker extractor groove than the earlier HXP, though I can't recall the exact year it changed. You can see the PPU is slightly thinner than even the HXP70. I then pulled out the calipers and measured the width of the bottom of each extractor groove. PPU was .0325", HXP70 was .0385", and HXP82 was .0465".

I should add that I've never had a problem with PPU, though I've only shot <100 rounds.
