Mil Surp Ammo ???

Discussion in 'The Powder Keg' started by JoeInCT, Jul 6, 2002.

  1. Wondering if anyone can help. Found local dealer with 1,080 round GI can of 30Carbine, appears to be 1986 manufacture, but the type appears to be marked "Ball KM1". What is KM1? Wondering if made in Korea, since many characters on outside of can appear to be Korean. Is this "US made" for Korea, or is it Korean manufacture? Interested in buying, but don't want to buy non-GI junk.

    I believe it is Korean manufacture. I shot some just the other day and it seemed to work fine.

    From what I can tell, it's supposed to mil-spec ammo. It is my understanding that it is made by PMC in Korea to shoot in those Carbines we gave them so many years ago.

    Yeah,I can't complain about it,no misfires,price is right. Only problem is I can't read Korean,so I always wonder if it says something like,"Stupid American,this stuff will blow up and kill you". hehehe
