This is what you get from the CMP. 1,440 Rounds of .30-06 M-2 Ball 150 Gr. Ammo. All of it is clean, well packaged, and nice and shiny. I'll report on it's accuracy later, when I get a chance to do some testing. So far, so good. Excellent price on this stuff. It comes out to $5.29 @ box of 20 delivered Fed Ex Priority. They have had a slight price increase, and imposed a 10 case limit per year, per customer. If your looking for cheap, accurate .30-06, It doesn't come any better than this. Bill T.

I just got back from the range and capped off 4 boxes of this stuff. Man, it's nice to shoot a round with some authority after all of the .223 I've been shooting lately! Even the wife enjoyed the increased power level. Anyway, this stuff is very accurate in all of my bolt guns. The Weatherby was the best, constantly grouping under 1" at 100 yards. The Ruger Mark II Stainless didn't like it much, but I expected that. That gun complains about most everything it's fed. The Browning A-Bolt Medallion Grade came in a close second, with only 2 of the 5, shot groups opening up to just under 2". I'll be buying more of this stuff, as it's excellent ammo, and loaded stiff. I had zero extraction or ejection problems with it. Makes the .223 feel like a woman's varminter! Bill T.

this ammo is great. i got it a while back for around 7$ a box and have been quite satisfied. the ammo runs pretty hot though. its pretty accurate through my custom m98 .30-06 with ww2 action. ive read that the ammo has a steel core as when it was produced for the greek military extra penetration was needed as the ammo was intended to be used in heavily wooded areas. overall its a great plinking ammo at the least and is in great condition. worth a buy if u have a .30-06
