IMO M2 is the standard .30-06 Ball Ammo of WW2 vintage...

 

Crate looks like a WW2 manufacture too

Thanks Johan. Your fast. What do they mean by cartons. I thought everything WWII came in metal ammo cans. Robert

Ammo came packed in either Cartons (loose cartridges) or on clips in bandoleers, packed in these wooden crates...

LtRGFRANK, yours is a WWII ammo box. Later boxes, first introduced around 1944, were different in many ways (size, markings, etc.).

 

Grading cal. .30 ammo for MG use (Air or Ground), or Rifle, was already in use back then.

 

Bye

I have just received an ammo crate as a gift from the Denver Depot that is a most remarkable specimen of a wooden crate. It is dated 5 - 44 and is as if it was made yesterday. The basic marking is "1200 cartrides cal.45 in cartons". It is packed with two metal tins, same date, each containing twelve 50 round boxes of steel jacketed ball ammo (dated 42). This box will be illustrated in Vol I, The Heroes In Our Midst. Hope this helps. Jack Angolia
