    Korean Surplus Ammo

    Been reading about some guys not being able to find ammo, primers, powder and bullets for reloading.

    Usual stuff we see around election and times of civil unrest.
    I'm pretty well stocked up but happened across a new site to me while searching about something else.

    So curiously asking if anyone has used any of the Korean Surplus ammo I found on this link below. Anyone know anything about it?
    Shoot ok? Clean? Price seems stiff @ $0.37 per round... I just noticed the ad for the Korean says 100 grain (?) FMJ. 2 size crates: 2160 rds and 1080 rds all on 10 rd strips in bandoleers. No price break for buying 2160 rds over 1080 rds
    Interested in any Comments....

    Type 30 carbine in the 'Search for a Product' box, Then click SEARCH

    I read somewhere that it is as good as USGI stuff. Not downloaded like Aguila. If I didn't have well over 1,000 rounds of Carbine ammo I would snag some, but most of my shooting is my Mini-14 (my M1icon Carbine with a "stiffy".

    I'm Curious as to what the head stamp is?
    I have 7 0r 8 full bandoleers boxed away I think may have been Korean.
    I'll try to dig them out in the next few days.

    Charlie, some of the Korean ammo 120 rd (bandoleers) I bought from SG ammo was head stamped K1 1 80. The ammo I bought from them in the 1080 ammo can was head stamped PSD 85
    Korean Surplus .30 Carbine ammo - The Carbine Collector's Club - Page 1

    Looks to be about the same price as SG ammo.
    1080 Round Can - .30 Cal M1 Carbine 110 Grain FMJ Ammo on Strippers and Bandoliers Korean Military Surplus | SGAmmo.com

    It has shot great for me although I think it was JackP that reported he had some punctured primers on some of the PSD head stamped stuff.

    Charlie, It's all ammo made originally for the Korean Military. When the Koreans went with the M16icon and later their own rifle in 5.56, the carbine became a standard secondary weapon. This was so till the government had enough weapons for all troops and reserves. That is when the carbine was phased out and all the ammo is slowly being sold off. It's really excellent ammo and as good as USGI and it's made to US specs.
