Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Anybody remember the Garand ammo that came up for sale several years ago on clips?

I got a bunch of this off a guy that inherited it form his father. A whole lot of it misfires. Its all mixed arsenals and dates. At least its good brass. Some of it is very hard to deprime.

I'll try and look at some of it tomorrow. I meant to today. I've not looked at it in a while.

Some headstamps say DEN, some RA, some TW. There might even be some others. But, this seems to be most of it.

What you have there is:
Remington Arms (RA & DEN) head stamped ammunition.

TW ammo is a MATCH ammo for .30-06
According to google, "TW Ball rounds came from the armory of the USS Monticello LSD35 in bandoleers of 8-rnd M1 rifle clips in 1960."

I don't think you have the Korean KA ammo there.
Do you have any photos of the ammo?

TW (twin city) made many MILLIONS (billions?) of USGI M2 Ball 30-06 as well as AP and tracer. It also came from everywhere the US army and its allies operated .30 cal weapons. Only Lake City and Frankford arsenal made M72 30-06 MATCH ammunition.

Thanks guys I had wondered what the headstamps were. I know I could've looked it up probably online but, just never got around to it.
