This 30-06 ammunition was made by Kynoch back in the 1950s. Although the British manufacturer was best known for their high-powered safari ammo with bullets weighing as heavy as 1,000 grains, they also lent their considerable efforts toward ensuring American rifles had enough ammo. American rifles have contributed greatly toward the preservation of Britain in recent decades, after all.

Why does this 30-06 round’s 148 grain bullet look so odd? It is a full metal jacket, although its jacket isn’t made of the same type of copper alloy we’re used to seeing these days. It is made of cupronickel. Cupronickel is still mostly copper, and the iron and/or manganese that strengthens it (and makes it more cost-efficient) also makes it magnetic. Bear that in mind if your favorite range has a policy in effect.

This surplus ammo has brass cases, but we wouldn’t recommend them for reloading. They have Berdan primers, which (A) are very difficult to line up because they have two flash holes instead of only one, and (B) don’t have nearly as well-standardized sizes. This ammo is non-corrosive, in remarkably good condition considering it has been shelved for over 60 years, and waiting for a home as good as your own.

A: Yes sir! Because Kynoch made this ammo in the '50s, it's nearly a given that they designed it with the M1 Garand specifically in mind.
