Korean KA Ammo Help
 
I have 312 rds. of KA 30-06 w/ various dates (69-71). It is in garand clips (8 rd. enbloc). Some slight dents and some slight corrosion on a few rds. I know it may be loaded w/ corrosive primers. I want to sell it. How much for this stuff? Picking through it I would say 90% looks fine. Pull the bullets on the rest? I would certainly appreciate your opinions on sale price and just how to advertise it. Thanks All.

Yes, it is corrosive. If you wantto sell it all, advertise #rds corroded, how bad, etc, and how many dented, how bad, etc. Can be pulled, pop out primer (will need to ream primer pocket, has slightly undersize pocket at crimp), new primer put in, and reassembled. As for price, check Gunbroker, see what current KA is going for, + clips. Clips generally add .50-.75/pc to price. Hope this helps.

im not 100% positive, but i have read from several different sources that the KA's were not corrosive and the PS marked cases were.

I think you have it backwards. KA is corrosive and PS is non-corrosive. However, there were some bad lots of PS that were causing split cases, blown primers etc.

I had 280rds. Took them apart, used the cases and bullets over, replaced the powder and primers. They shot real nice.
