I found a local pawn shop that sells Yugo 30-06 that is supposedly made to M2 ball specs for export in the late 50s for $7 per box of 22.

It is headstamp marked IK 1956.

I have found a web page that states that the author thinks it is 150Gr milspec M2 ammo. However, the price tag on the box states that it is 180Gr FJM ammo. I think the price tag may be wrong.

I am thinking I found a good source to feed my Garand and this may in fact be 150Gr M2 speced.

Anybody know anything about this stuff or use it in their M1?

Very good ammo, but corrosive and berdan primed. Shot a couple of cans worth years ago , but out of M1903s and M1917s. As accurate as most other M2 milsurp. It is M2 Ball, with a 150 gr projectile. The ammo came packed in real US WW2 .50 Cal cans with side opening lids... not bad considering I was able to buy it for about $45 a can of 484 rounds.

Nice, thanks Dan.

Used to buy the Czech Silvertip 7.62x54R ammo like that for about the same price.

Im afraid those days are now gone. If I had known back then I would have bought more.

Anyway, Ill stock up on this Yugo stuff for my M1 as well as some Privi 308. The Privi 308 cost $14 a box though so that's not such a good deal.

I think this Yugo 30-06 is a steal at $7 a box so I plan on hogging it up and keeping it a secred LOL.
