Just in case anyone is interested. 192 rd of 30-06 on enblocs for $105 shipped.

https://estore.thecmp.org/Catalog/Item/4C3006XAYR-192P

**Corrosive** I plan to shoot it through my 03A3 and save the enblocs for my loose Garand ammo.

Wow, good price. Too bad it's corrosive - probably why it is such a bargain. I love the "Do Not Use as a Food Container" marking.

I got the email and was chomping at the bit to order as I assumed it was more of the HXP.

Turned out it wasn't so I deleted the email and went about my business.

I was getting ready to fill one with chicken soup and saw that warning at the last minute. It makes sense though. Soldiers in the field come up with all sorts of expedient devices.

I miss Orest. I remember picking up two crates of AYR AP and the price was half that of what today's listing is.

I like the warning on the WW2 bore cleaner cans "do not drink".

According to my grandfather, some of the rations he had to eat in Korea were so rotten, that you may have mistaken bore cleaner for food. A lot of that stuff was left over from WWII.

Too bad the ammo is corrosive. I think PPU .30-06 is not too far away in price-per-round, so I might as well get that if I'm buying new ammo.

Oh my, it must have been horrible to be stuck in a ditch or foxhole in battle and also having to fight locked up bowels or extreme mudbutt from food poisoning...

I was never anywhere near the two-way range, but we spent plenty of soldier time in the field eating MRE's. They are quite ingenious in their ability to restrict bowel movements when eating them daily. The company area latrines were quite toxic for a day or so when we came back.

I actually really liked MREs........but you are right, you couldn't sh*t for a week afterwards.

I once accidentally drank a small bottle of hoppes in the dark. I was never able to shoot straight again.

I've never had a rotten C ration meal. Actually learned which ones had what, cigs, peanut butter......crackers MRE's couldn't possibly taste as good. No water needed Our hot meal was a collection of everyone's main then put in metal can with water and heater then it was surprise.....no meat loaf today! The cheese and crackers were pretty good too

The peanut butter C rations last forever. In 1973 I was eating ones made in 1945. I was an army brat living in Germany at the time. We would get C rations from the PX for our Boy Scout camping trips. . We camped in military training areas and would always find cans of the 1945 peanut butter that the GIs threw away. We would pick them up and make sandwiches. Never got sick.

The ammo said it attracts a magnet so it must be steel core, I though most ranges (Burro and Angeles) don't allow steel bullets.

They don't allow ammo that attracts a magnet so be aware that you won't be able to shoot it at most ranges if you buy it. Personally I would just buy the Prvi Garand safe ammo or reload if shooting at a public range in So Cal.

Kind of a shame I missed it too. Only lasted a few hours if that. The chatter at the CMP forums is that people are receiving spam cans of AP mixed in the orders.

I got some of that AYR stuff back when the released the cans of AP. There were reports of problems so I pulled it all down. Maybe 10% had corrosion and clumped powder on the inside of the cases, like the powder was still wet when they were loaded.

They were berdan primed, so I reduced the charge by one grain, and reused the powder but with some pull down M80 projectiles, it made a good plinking load and I didn't need to bend over to chase brass.
