Lake City 45ACP

Pictures will be posted tomorrow.

I have several 50 round white boxes of, Lake City Match ammo, as stamped on box.

Head stamp reads, LC 45ACP
Lot no. stamped on end flap is, 298 08
Box is marked, Imported Exclusively By:
Armscorp USA, Inc
Baltimore, MD 21227-1506
USA

Product of Hungary

Is this truly match ammo? Is it worth a premium to buy?

Just wondering before I put it up in classified section.

Thanks in advance for any info.

It is not actually Lake City match ammo. Unfortunately, some people try to market stuff under known names in an attempt to mislead those who don't know better, into thinking it is of better quality. Sorry, it is not worth any more than generic Walmart ammo.

Lake City is a specific ammunition plant in the US.

NO such thing as Lake City made in a foreign country.

Real Lake City is stamped LC and year of manufacture, not caliber.

I donít know the story behind the Lake City that I had, just sold it before I took pictures of it.

What I posted though did came from the ammo box and what is stamped on the brass. Could have been fake Lake City ammo.

Either way, itís gone.

A member here had a pallet of the stuff years ago. An was selling it at $10 a box. It's dirty as hell an you better clean your weapon after use that day!

The brass sucks for reloading also.
