Default This has to be RARE

I have never seen this before~ I picked up a can of LC M80 1966 on 8 round (enbloc) clips in 48 round bandoleers. The can is short 2 bandoleers short. Must have been made for the Garands that were converted to 7.62X51
Cool but at $0.50 a round ... way cool

The Navy had those 7.62 Garands somewhere.
They needed ammo!

Yep. And you did better then the last time I saw a can for sale.

5 or 6 years (or more) ago cdvs.us had a sealed can for sale, at about 95 cents a round.

But it is not one of the more common things you run across.

I'd really like to find a can of that stuff. I have a couple (unbuilt) Mod 1 Barreled Receivers. I finally got all the parts needed to build one complete 7.62 Garand. Don't know what to do with the other BR.

I remember in 1987, we had a Red Cell exercise at the Long Beach Naval Station. We had guards on the mole with M-1s. I'm sure that they were chambered in 7.62x51 NATO.

I had maybe 12 cans of that years ago that I acquired at a Tulsa gun show. I think a few of the bandoleers were remarked from 5.56 bandoleers. Still have a few of the bandoleers, empty of course. I remember it as really good ammo.
