ID on M1 carbine ammo

I picked up a few 50 round boxes of surplus .30 cal carbine ammo yesterday, but I have no idea where it was made. The box is marked 50 cartuchos 30 M1 . The headstamp is 30 M1 60.

Thank you for your help.

Sounds like Belgium. Is the ammo stamped FN?

It would be nice if it was made by FN, but it is not marked "FN", the only headstamp is 30 M1 60.

Cartuchos is Spanish, so it must be from south of the border somewhere. As we know some South American countries make better ammunition than others.

Cartuchos

My guess would be Ecuador...they have a well developed ammunition manufacturing operation

They makes some damfine 7.62 x 51 ammo

Do you think it is corrosive?

"...Do you think it is corrosive?..." When in doubt, clean as if it is corrosive. Is it berdan primed? U.S. made .30 carbine ammo won't be, but your's could be. Spanish marked ammo could be from anywhere. Lots of M-1 Carbines went South over the last 60 years.

It is not like any berdan case I have ever seen. It has one flash hole instead of two and it is not centered like boxer primed cases.
