    Posted: Jun 11 2022 at 8:04am
I was going through an ammo can and found a bandoleer of .30 Carbine ammo that I bought years ago, probably at a gunshow. I had it marked on my inventory sheet as Israeli, but I don't think it is. 

The headstamp is simply 
30C      81

Red primer sealant and what looks like a crimp ring. 
I thought 81 was the year, but now I'm thinking the 81 is the manufacturer, which would make it Chinese. 
Anyone else seen this?

According to the link below the 30C 81 is from Taiwan.
