Hopefully someone over here will know............
I just got a 20 round box of M2 ball ammo but it's British not American. The box is a standard US military type box and the label is white with a large red band down the middle. It's marked as follows:
CALIBRE .30 M2
Lot 4 10/54
Manufactured at the Kynoch Factories of
Imperial Chemical Industries Limited, Metals Division
Witton, Birmingham, England
Is this military or civilian ammunition? It has a K 54 headstamp as if it was military but I don't know why it would be manufactured in the UK and boxed to look like US military ammo. Anybody know the answer?
