Default M1 Carbine Ball - Late Vietnam LC

Iíve spent the last 4 weekends digging through the estate of a gun shop owner who closed doors over 20 years ago. I unearthed this treasure this past Saturday.

Itís a full case of Lake City M1 Carbine ball ammo dated 1972. 1080 rounds on stripper clips, in bandoleers. Since I started digging, Iíve spent more than I paid for my first car. Well worth it!

It pairs well with my Inland M1, Inland M1A1 and WWII Winchester ammo.

I've been shooting Korean 1980's M1 Carbine ammo packed in the same way. Love the bandoleers and loading clips. Interesting to think that the Korean police who carried the Carbine when I was in Korea in 83-84 were shooting the same stuff.

Not sure how old you are but I only paid $500. for my first car. That would be a bargain with that example .

I managed to buy a few cans of those from a retired friend that was moving to Michigan. he didn't want to tote the weight cross country. I've been on a carbine kick lately. Just finished preparing a stock for some boiled linseed oil!

Do you just collect carbine ammo, or do you shoot it?

I would have to dispose of some of that very soon. If you don't reload save the brass cause it sells pretty fast and it ain't cheap.

Default SGammo is selling the same stuff right now.

I just bought a couple of cans of it myself. They have it for a pretty good price. Get some while you can if you have M-1 carbines.
