    Default Yugo .30-06?

    Im just curious about some ammo I've got, that shoots great, but is probably corrosive. It's boxer primed, brass case, and is .30-06 ammo, yet comes in some funny boxes, (22 rounds) and has curious headstamps. It was sold to me as Yugoslavian, which is possible?

    The markings on the box:

    22 KOM.
    7.62MM METAKA CA YHNBEP3AnHNM 3PHOM M2

    NK 5802

    bAPYT HUA-02 MbN 5704


    all is in cryillic, all "N"s are cyrillic style going the other way, all "Y" type letters have a "foot" at the bottom, and the "HuA-02" is actually a u-looking letter, with a triangle looking letter.

    I'm sure this is a Yugoslavian(?) copy of U.S. M2 ball ammo, and it's great stuff. It is boxer primed. Is it corrosive? I'm treating it as if it is, but can anyone tell from the box?

    Headstamps are:

    NK (N goes the other way)

    1957

    it is corrosive. Good shooting stuff, made to M2 ball spec for M-1's and 1919's. They packed 22 rounds per box, and got a IIRC 40 additional rounds per .50cal ammo can, so their can is total of 440 rnds. A lot of this came in a number of years ago, packed in the WWII style side open ammo cans, and sold for about $65.00 per can, (again, IIRC)
    Clean your gas system in your M-1, not hard to do, but must be done. :cool:

    Yes, it's Yugoslav, made by Igman in 1957.

    It is NON-corrosive. 1956 IS corrosive....

    I've had that same web info for a couple of years, so its old info. I bought some of this Yugo ammo 2-3 years ago and have shot some in my Garands and '03. Good N/C ammo.
