Guys: I am getting 4500 rounds next week. Packed in 30 rd boxes on clips, FN Belgian made for Spain, 1950's dates. I do not know if it is corrosive or not. I will post the info when we have it here. I felt the members of this board deserve the chance to get some of it....

There are 3 full sealed cases of 1600 rds each, and one that has been opened and is short a few boxes.

I still have to examine this stuff, but I think it will be a lot less than remchester or PPU...The seller is local and I will get to examine before buying....

Don't send me no stinkin' badges until I get it..

If 1950s, Corrosive. FN only went over to NON-corr on general contract ammo in the middle to late 1960s...by the way, what makes you say "Spanish"?...the labels may be IN Spanish, but for Latin America,( if "FN-Date); not Spain, which had its own facilities (FN-T, Toledo, FN-P, Palencia, and P-S Sevilla )...maybe you got confused on the headstamps?
Check this out, better still, send photos of Packets and cartridge headstamp.

Fabrique National Belgique, for Spain Supposedly...I have yet to see it....IF it is Spanish Mfg., I may pass on it, as their stuff often goes bad after 50+ years....The seller went to Lower AL, for the week end, and he will be back Tuesday...

You all will be the first to know.
