Kyler,
Your post was a little confusing at first as you said you had 'M1 carbine ammunition. (30-06)'. The M1 Carbine ammunition is '.30 Carbine', 30-06 is used in the M1 Garand, M1903 Springfield, and several others.

Jonny C. is one of our resident cartridge collectors. I suggest you PM directly.

Thanks ABN for the vote of confidence!

Kyler, you have a mix of common .30-06 (7.62x63) rifle/MG ammo. I'm not sure what bullet types you have, but the headstamps indicate a mix of military and commercial, corrosive and non-corrosive. Nothing unusual without a visual, but I would say it's mainly shooting ammo or component bits for reloading. A collector might pay upwards of .50-1.00 for one of them.....if they really needed it. A shooter would probably go about .35-.45 a round.

okay, thank you, I was trying to research into the guns specifically and came up with mostly M1 carbine, so thanks for the clarification.

JC- I found a unreliable source saying the stamps were from goverment issued factories and show signs of not being reloads. The bullet types very from piercing to soft points. How can I determine if they're corrosive or non-corrosive?

I think your post-1953 headstamps will be non-corrosive, and the commercial headstamps (SUPER-X, SUPER SPEED, WESTERN 30-G, PETERS, and D.C.Co) should be as well. All the others are wartime military production and should have corrosive primers. You can't tell from a headstamp whether a round is a reload or not.

The "D.C.Co. .30 SPG." and other commercial headstamps are not wartime military contracts. They are on commercial contracts for civilian shooters. The Dominion is Canadian, and all the others, including Philadelphia's FrankfOrD Arsenal, are US.
