i have a brass tumbler but its the bath water type. old pecan shell dillon one got chucked after about 20 years.
i will try all that, thanks.
i have had since the 80s ( a DEA buddy gave it to me cleaning out his junk drawer) an en bloc loaded w/30-06 rds, black tipped (armor piercing ?) that looks like is might have a I S 1 (?) on it. it has light surface rust on it and the rds are stuck like chuck. i can see a 3 on one rd and a W for winchester i'm sure on another.

I thought the really rare Winchester en bloc was the first production with wrong dimensions and had to have the notches re-cut ?

I believe there are some early SA clips with the notches cut out with single numbers - will look for a photo

the 3 is on the ammo case, as in mfg by winchester in 1943. hope i didn't confuse anyone.
i'm sure it says 43 but i can't see the 4

The I S stands for International Silver, itís a USGI clip. The #1 is the die it was made on (there were four of them). With a little prying the rounds should come right out.

If you have a brass tumbler, throw them in.
No tumbler, I use some gun oil(RemOil or any type lube) and some #0000 steel wool to knock down the park on the clips....inside and outside. Then wipe off any excess oil on the clips and should smooth them out. Have done this on AEC/CMP clips with no problems after.
Good luck!
heres what i have done so far to about 10 clips with what i have on hand. hit em with 00 steel wool, clean w/thinner, put some JB compound on a felt wheel on dremel tool, go over inside of clip especially lips, clean with thinner, lightly oil all over with 10-20 oil, wipe off, load clip. its a lot easier. am thinking about spraying with ONE SHOT instead of using dremel and oiling internally, then oiling externally. remember, this is what i have on hand to work with. overkill? underkill? ok?

More effort than I would have done, but if it works....good for you!
