    Fellas - I have ammo cans from CMP each with 192 rounds of HXP 30-06 in en-bloc clips and bandoliers. I am not using them and not expecting to assault a beach in Normandy anytime soon. $350 per can. Please PM me if you are interested.

    Thanks

    "S L" 55 & 56

    A bit of web searching seems to suggest this is from "St Louis Ordnance Plant, St Louis, MO" with 1955-1956 production. Some online forum posts state that this location, like Lake City, switched to non-corrosive around 1952/1953.

    Interesting, I didn't really look into what it was, but I figured it was post WWII by the 56. I assumed it was for the Garand though being FMJ. I have a good bit of 30.06 - hunting ammo ! Just figured I'd throw it out there if there was any interest for a reasonable offer/trade.

    Why would I pay over $1 a round for HXP when the new PPU stuff is Garand rated? Never made sense. It did when HXP was cheap.

    Ha, you'll still pay over $1 "per pew" for PPU. It's running $1.50/rd on Ammoseek right now. The closest you'll get to $1/rd is some Turkish surplus that's floating around out there.

    Yes, $1.50 is still better than $1.80 for HXP.

    I just paid $1.22/rd for the greek stuff on GB, including shipping to my door, taxes, and a 3.5% CC fee
    There was just a recent ad in the MS classifieds for 0.69/rd for LC and Danish, 1167 rounds for $800 (I'm really kicking myself now for not jumping all over that)

    It's out there to be found at better prices than $1.50/rd.

    I know I've seen PPU around $1 give or take.
    I went through the same thing looking for surplus 30 carbine ammo, in the end it just made more sense to buy new production, as everyone with surplus wanted "market value"

    Eventually, the prices for new production 30-06 ammo will catch up and $1/rd will be plentiful or it won't.... Not depending on it for home defense, just the enjoyment of shooting 70-80 year old rifles :D

    I forget where (I think AIM) but I just bought PPU M1 load for right about $1/round delivered. I like HXP and the brass is great for reloading but no way I'm buying. Might sell some at these prices

    Glad I handload for the M1 Garand. I use Hodgdon powders and CCI primers and keep my foot per seconds around 2500 so I don't bend the OP rod. Watch out for that old ammo with corrosive primers and cheap dirty powder!

    When you guys find this inexpensive ammo, are you posting it anywhere? I'm taking it in the shorts, trying to keep my stockpile up!

    Note to self: post ammo deals in depot forum, so others can stockpile and sell to me at "market price" at a later date.... :innocent0
