Pulling some 30.06 M2 1940

I ran across these cartridges in a old bandoleer that unfortunately mice had chewed on.

I started pulling them and noticed the 150 grain bullet is sealed with some black stuff. I plan to put the cases in the ultrasonic to break it up after depriming and removing the crimps.

I did some research and the powder that they used was 4895 and by looks, weight (49-50 grains), and smell that would seem to be true. I have some new that I compared it to. The military stuff looks perfect so I took some outside and touched it off with a match and it burned fine.

I am sure the brass and bullets are ok. Pretty confident the powder is okay as well. I know the primers are the old corrosive type and I am not using them. Will reprime with Win LR.

Anyone with experience with these please chime in. Thanks
