Hello folks. I have a quick question and hope somebody can offer some input. I've been reading up about AP .30-06 lately, and it seems that there are some scammers out there that are "faking" AP ammo to sell at a good profit. I used a sharpie on a couple ball rounds last night and it would be EXTREMELY easy to fake them. How does one verify an advertised AP round is actually AP? I thought you could use a magnet, but apparently some of my regular M2 ball ALSO attracts a magnet.
I have 220 rounds of blacktips, with headstamps of SL53, SL4, AYR55, DM42 (loaded on 5 round clips), and LC53. I think all of these are the original loadings, as they still have the military crimp on the primer pocket. I just hope I didn't get duped.
Thanks a lot in advance.
