I was lucky enough to get some French ammo packed on stripper clips/chargers. They are shiny aluminum. I have not tried alternatives, but apparently the case head diameter is just about identical to the 7.65x54mm Belgian/Argentine/Turkish Mauser cartridge and the 6.5x55mm Swedish cartridge. You might try some Swedish 6.5x55mm Mauser chargers and see if they might work.

Good luck/ Bon chance!

For French MAS 36 clips, one can substitute the '03 Springfield clip (as this was the prototype for the French design)..and since the Springfield clip was a copy of the M95 Mauser clip ( and M93, M94, M96...) all "wide" clips, one can use Spanish, Latin American,Swedish, even Japanese clips in a MAS36...and to go the whole circle, in 1949, the French issued .30 cal ( "cal 7,62 Balle O") in aluminium clips, identical (except for markings) to the MAS36 rifle clip.

The only one which may have fit problems is the Nato clip ( a bit short) and the M98 clip ( too narrow for the clip guides).
