    Found some .30-06 ammo in my friends place.

    It's on cloth belts, though I'm not 100% sure it if it came on the belts or he put them on the belts.

    The head stamp is in sort of a triangle, in this approximate angle;

    " F

    N


    66"

    So the "F" is at noon, the "N" is at 4 'oclock and the "66" is at about 8'oclock.

    What I'm trying to identify is;
    a- who made this
    b- is it corrosive
    c- is this M2 ball or m2 ball spec ammo

    IF it is M2 ball spec, we wante dto shoot it out of a garand, but wewant to be careful that is is OK stuff to do so. I've searched everywhere and cannot find nay referance to this headstamp. I checked and it is NOT "FA", but is indeed "F N". Any helpy ou can offer is greatly appreciated!
