I have approx. 100 loose rounds of Frankford Arsenal 1935 National Match ammo for sale. This is sold as collector grade ammo, no guarantee if it will go bang. Corrosive primer with sealant still showing. Various patinas, some worse than others. Very rare. $1.00 per round. Ships UPS, buyer pays shipping cost from 31705

(nerd voice) Technically, The M1 wasn't adopted until 1937, therefore this must be M1903 ammo.:roll:

(Adult Male Voice) The .30 ball round adopted for the 1903 Springfield was designated M1906 until after the 1919-1920 "Daytona Beach Tests" . The round that was adopted after the "Daytona Beach Tests" was designated the M1 bullet - a 172-grain boat-tail with a gilding metal (copper alloy) jacket. Ref: "AN INTRODUCTION TO COLLECTING .30-06 CARTRIDGES" by the International Ammunition Association.

.30 M1903 Ammo is a different round from the .30 M1906 and .30 Ball M1 and M2.

You, Sir, are mixing Rifle nomenclature with Ammunition nomenclature.

I stand corrected!:rightawaysir:

If those rounds could talk. . .
They can somewhat, they were part of the estate of a Camp Perry participant. Not sure the years but guess from the 30's and/or 40's. He was from the Maryville, TN area and were given to a friend of mine by his widow when he passed. They sat in a canvas bank bag on a shelf in his basement garage (hence the varying patinas) from 1962 until last year when he gave a lot of antique shooting stuff to me. I appreciate his gift but I'd rather have his Winchester Model 54 Target model chambered in 30-06 with Lyman peep sight, I believe was mfg in 1935. It grades out at 90%+.
