I was reading that the US stopped production of its .30 M2 ( 30.06) AP in 1954. They contracted Raufoss ( headstamp "AYR") out of Norway to carry on our AP requirements. Can anyone verify this information? image.jpeg

A can of TW purchased a long time ago from the CMP, all are 1954 headstamped. My AYR is all 1955, and Berdan primed, I found out the hard way, I broke the primer pin on my reloading die.
