Are you looking strictly to sell or would you entertain trades?

I dont plan to shoot any steel case or cheap Russian stuff. I got my enbloc clips the other day, and I loaded up some Federal 7.62 NATO and some ZQ1 which has shot well for me. A nice surprise is 2 loaded clips fit perfectly in a ZQ1 box.

Update;

So, I had taken it to the range, and one particular clip was having trouble feeding, so I set it aside with a question mark on it. I had read Tankers had issues, so I wanted Charlie Maloney to look at it. I finally got it down to him this afternoon, and he was extremely patient with me. I don't think he was really impressed with my tacticool tanker brake, but that is the extent of my Garand gunsmithing. The main issue was the stock rubbing, which he said was slowing the action. He dremmeled the stock a bit, and put some linseed oil on to protect it. He cleaned, inspected and lubed it. My rear sight elevation knob is worn, so I do have to replace it soon. The throat, muzzle, receiver, gas cylinder, barrel straightness, op rod, all good. Timing good, headpsace good, and he did a trigger job because the trigger was pretty bad. Well worth the money. He took the time to explain everything to me. Great, knowledgeable guy.

Nice boomer. Glad it functions.
I had troubles with new Parkerized clips loading in my 308 Garand. Sandpaper and Oxpho Blue took care of the drag. The shoulder on 308 is a hair wider than the same location on the side of 30-06, so rough clips can drag. Blued clops are no problem.
If you want to single load rather than always load a full clip, you can get a "SLED" or Single Loading Enhancement Device, which is a modified clip that holds one round and doesn't eject after firing. I got them for the slow fire in matches. This loads correctly. Just pop a round in and release the bolt. No worry about slamming shut single loading. They cost about $10. Midway/Garandgear and others.
Also you can get 2 round clips that do eject. Much easier than crossing two in a regular clip. I also have a couple of these for highpower matches for the rapid fire (2 shots, reload with a full clip.
5 round clips are also available for hunting in states with 5 round magazine rules.
