Are you referring to CMP sold ammo or other ammo? I ask because CMP ammo is not reloaded. It is packaged delinked and repackaged in boxes by Talon. That is all.

Oh, yes. Lake City M2 and Greek HXP M2 both attract a magnet.

CMP and Greek both have copper plated mild steel jackets. None of the Winchester 147gr fmjbt I have attracts a magnet, but they're from the last 10yrs production. OrdDept has used steel jacketed bullets off and on for years.

Its also known as Winchester White Box, Winchester USA, or just WWB. I've seen it both local and online, Midway usually carries it.

ur right, ocabj. I was going by Talons' website where they call themselves "remanufactures". I'm sure most are delinked as I've had a few AP and one(1) tracer I've encountered out of a can. My above post was in ref to one ricochet I had where it came back at me hitting the tin roof right above my head.

The Lake City and Greek 30-06 from the CMP all has a bullet that will attract a magnet.
I also got a case of the Korean that comes in Garand clips, it wil attract a magnet too.
And yes, I know the Korean is corrosive, and will clean carefully after shooting it.

Is there any surplus 30-06 that is non-magnetic?

Easy answer: no. There have been some LC lots that didn't attract a magnet, but there isn't a vendor that sells LC advertised as non-magnetic. Korean and Greek all attract a magnet.

There are several options for those restricted by their ranges to use non-magnetic ammo:

1. Use an adjustable gas plug with commercial ammo.

2. Reload

3. Find a new range

Option 1 is the easiest and most convenient for non reloaders. Option 2 is the best in the long run. Option 3 is a good idea if possible.

ocabj

Have to respectfully disagree with you.

I purchased three ammo cans of Korean 30.06 several years ago. The 1st can that had the ammo in grand clips was magnetic and slighty corrosive. The other two cans had the rds. (400 to a can) packaged in 20rd. boxes. I'm looking at one as I type this. I just checked a round & it was non-magnetic. I've shot about 100 rds. of this stuff so far and it's great. My guns don't show any signs of the ammo being corrosive either. It's marked "20 Cartridges BALL M2 Caliber .30 Lot PS-2-147" on the one side of the 20rd box. The other side is marked in Korean with the exception of the numbers "20 M2 .30 2-147". I'd buy another 10 cans if I could find some more at a reasonable price. It looks like those days are long gone. JMHO

PS is "probably safe" (non-corrosive) and KA is "korrosive Ammo", as one rifle forum put it so readers could remember. ocabj did say it was the easy answer, but there's never any way to say with certainty short of using production records as a reference, and I didn't get the idea it was an all-inclusive opinion. If someone isn't willing to do the research, or at least pour through several forums knowledgeable on the subject, it's better to assume its all magnetic rather than take a chance on buying a lot of it. JMHO, YMMV.

I don't doubt that there has been non-magnetic Korean floating around. Unfortunately, I don't know of any vendor that will check what they are selling and advertise any non-magnetic surplus M2 ball.

Personally, I shoot HXP right now. I am not concerned with magnetic bullets since my club's range doesn't restrict it. I stopped reloading for the Garand ever since the CMP began issuing it for JCG matches. Plus, HXP is cheap enough for me to buy and use for practice since the cost per round is just a tad more than my own cost per round for reloads. When HXP dries up, I figure I'll have tens of thousands of pieces of .30-06 brass stockpiled for reloading...
