Korean 30.06 PS-2-200 ammunition

I have some Korean 30-06, lot number PS-2-200.

I've found info on other Korean lot numbers but not this one.

Some of the Korean stuff was bad and I want to know more before deciding what to do with it.

A good rule that I have been using since 1995 on .06 ammunition...

Korean ammunition lot codes, KA= korrosive ammunition, PS= Probably safe, NC Non Corrosive ammunition.

Thanks POLACK.

Those are a few of many sites I found on the PS-2-200.

No actual reports on that lot number.

So.....if that lot number falls in with some of the good ones, would you call it good?

Why would there be no reports on that lot number?

I've shot a box or two through my Model 70 with no issues.

Just becuase a lot isnt listed does not mean its safe. Alot of guys have used Korean surplus with no problems but personally I would not use it if you gave it to me.
I have seen to many Garands destroyed by Korean surplus. To its not worth the chance
Just my opinion ,yours may vary

If the ammo takes that much research to figure out if its safe or not I'd suggest passing. Especially if Korean ammo is suspect to start with

I bought some cans of Korean yrs ago on Garand enblocks. It would not run a Garand. I also bought some Korean on '03 strippers, it ran Garands just fine. I un-clipped & reverse clipped it back up for the respective rifles it would run. Go figure!
