Default Ethiopian Garand Ammo?

Does anyone have experience with Ethiopian 30-06 ammo? It is in bandoliers and Enbloc, mid-70s dates.

Maybe better if he bumps up his life insurance. His wife will appreciate it if there is a wife.

You're joking, right? If you're serious, warn your range mates before firing. I would suggest a solid rifle vise and a long pull cord for testing. If I were given a choice of several foriegn "brands" of ammo on a table to buy for my Garand, something from Ethiopia would probably be close to my last choice.

So, other than belittling humor, does anyone have actual experience with it? I don't have a dog in this fight but I'm curious more than anything. I certainly don't consider Ethiopia to be an arms powerhouse.
