.30.06 Milsurp Ammo ID Help (Headstamps)

KenK/84BravoKenK/84Bravo Member Posts: 11,729 ✭✭✭✭

I have one full .50 cal. can of loose milsurp .30.06. (All FMJ) Got some buddies coming over to look at/buy this aft. (Sold that firearm.)

4 different Headstamps.

1) LC (Lake City?)

2) KA

3) LS

4) TW

(I do not even remember where I got this from.) Would have posted in ATE, but this forum gets more traffic. Looking for some answers fairly quickly. Any Help/Input appreciated.

7 more boxes (20 rnds/per) of high end stuff.

Thanks in advance.

    KA is Korean and is corrosive

    TW - Twin Cities, Minneapolis

    LS - Lone Star, Texarkana

    And LC is indeed Lake City, in Independence, Missouri.

    Thank You, So Much Guys.

    I knew there would be a knowledgeable "crew," here. 👍

    Many thanks. 😁

    Thank you all.

    Sold 300 Milsurp and another 140 High end boxed. (.30.06)

    Another 7 boxes of .45acp. (230 ball S&B)

    We we're all very happy. They appreciated that I had identified/seperated all the milsurp rounds, by Headstamp.

    Should've asked more for the boxed High End, but they were friends. All good.

    Thanks for the identification info. 👍😁

    Thanks again. (I appreciate the ID.)

    Took in about $400+/-, that will go towards .308 ammo. I'd rather give my buddies a good deal than the Pawn shop in trade. (Only the boxed ammo.)

    My buddies were happy, I was happy. Win/Win. 👍😁
