I found a few hundred rds of WWII era .30 carbine. Mixed head stamps, LC, EC and WCC. Most appears to be dated 1943, and some 1945. Is this considered collectable, or should I just shoot it? Also, is it corrosive?

Thanks

All US carbine ammo used noncorrosive primers. No corrosive 30 carbine from US government contracts. Collectible? Dunno, but doubt it.

carbine ammunition

All US made carbine ammo will be non-corrosive. I'm not sure about some chineese knockoff LC ammo.

THat Second War s tuff you have, 1943 you s ay, Is getting hard to f ind as is All uS carbine ammo. I try not to shoot my Second War carbine ammo much or my Korean US GI stuff. Warning! DO Not shoot any steel cased 1943 Evansville carbine ammo you happen to run a cross. That steel cased 1943 carbine ammo was Not sent overseas and only used for training. And it was crappy stuff that would break extractors. I know one guy who shot a clip of that steel cased US stuff and one round was a Squib, which got stuck in teh upper part of teh barrel and he didnt notice and fired the next shot which blew out the upper part of teh barrel below the front sight.

thanks for the info. All of mine is brass. I'll probably put it aside. I have most of a case of S&B left.
