WTK M1 carbine ammo ID

3 posts in this topic

I tried posting on the ammo board but couldn't.  I found some more M1 carbine ammo in my stash.  The box is marked Interarms MW-938.  The cartridge is marked 1-62 at 12 o'clock, BD at 3 o'clock, 7.62 at 6 o'clock and VE at 9 o'clock.  Can anyone tell me what I've got and is it corrosive?

Thanks,

Kevin in NC

The ammo board is a Market Board ....... For selling ....... Not asking questions. 

this is the correct board for general ammo questions.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

VE is a known French code ..... The French used a lot of US M 1  Carbines right after WWII

probably repackaged by Interarms

If it is French ...... It IS corrosive

France 

Note: French headstamps mark the 1-digit Quarter of the year of production and 2-digit Year at the 12-o'clock position (e.g. Q-YY), the letter code for the metal supplier for the case at the 3-o'clock position, the cartridge caliber and model at the 6-o'clock position, and the manufacturer at the 9-o'clock position.

  • VE Cartoucherie de Valence Valence, France.
