Milsurp 30-06

Midway has the following listed for $150. What could I expect in accuracy and performance from such a round? This noob has no idea.

30-06 Springfield 150 Grain Full Metal Jacket Boat Tail M2 Ball Mixed Headstamp 270 Loose Rounds

Thanks in advance,
Andrew

Korean, right?

Some discussion here:

Probably some corrosive mixed in.

All I needed to know. (Meaning, I'll pass on the ammo.)

Thank you very much,
Andrew

Greek HXP or USGI surplus M1/M2 ball is the only '06 ammo I would shoot in any of my mil-surp rifles. I find M1/M2 ball at gun shows at HXP prices, sometimes better than HXP price. Two weeks ago I bought 200rds of M1 ball on brass strippers for $70, stuff looks like new, been well cared for since 1912, shoots great to.

The Midway M2 ball is mostly KA head stamped and I read mixed reviews about it.
