The small arms ammunition cases which were part of the M1956 webgear were designed to carry ammo for a number of the rifles then in use (not just the new M14 rifle) - that included the M1 rifle. That being said, we all know that the military is slow in replacing old gear and field new gear so I would have expected M1923 ammo belts to be in the system well after the standardization of the M1956 gear.
