I've been under the impression the last year for G.I. 30-06 ammo other than match was 1969, but somebody offered me Lake City M2 Tracers headstamped "LC 71"

 

Does anybody have solid info on this?  The price is good, but I told him I'll get back to him (when I know what's what).  To add to the confusion they are in WWII vintage enbloc clips (although that really means nothing - they could have been put in there last night)

 

Any help appreciated

I don't know about ball but they're still cranking out blank for our use in funeral honors. I like do not think I've seen any ball M-2 dated past late 60's.

Thanks guys. 

I don't know where I got it from, but as I said above I was under the impression 1969 was the cut-off for all but match. 

Thanks to your info I'll jump on the guy's offer - $5 a clip for tracer and $4 a clip for ball and in WWII marked enblocs I can't see how I could go wrong.

I think that's a very fair price. From the collector standpoint - as in buy and have / keep it in your collection - its a great price given what it is, and from the shooter standpoint it's really good too. You cannot go to the store and get 30-06 for only .50 cents a round. 

 

Buy it all!

Back in the mid 90's I purchased some '78 LC Match brass from the CMP.

US supplied Marvin the ARVIN with M2 ball. They had .30 Carbines, M-1's, BARs and 1919's.

AH!  As Mr Spock would say:  Very logical explaination

 

Thanks, Art

Some of my reference materials showed that Lake City made .30-06 from 1942-1945, 1951-late 70s, 1993, and 2002. Hope this helps Art. Regards, Charlie
