    ANY VALUE FOR M60 7.62X52 LINKED AMMO PICS?

    Is there any real value to these battle packs of 7.62x51 battle packs or should I dlink them and shoot em? The head stamp is marked FA 60 I assume there Frankford Arsenal 1960. Thanks Donnie

    I'd love to tell you no and pay you a pittance for them but, I'm guessing that it being boxer primed US made ammo it'd bring $0.40+/- per round. It looks to be in great shape. If it were mine I'd shoot it and save the brass. Given the age I wouldn't be surprised if most or not all of the tracers didn't light.

    I'd leave it as it is myself, and find some DAG or similar to shoot.
    Where are you guys finding this stuff?

    Thanks for your input. I couldn't find anything that says its collectible however how many people have ammo cans with the real contents inside (and I have 2, 4 battle packs). I think I will have to leave them in my safe for now. I still find it hard to think of delinking something like this it's a great conversation piece but if I ever decided to I wanted to be sure I wasn't destroying something valuable. I acquired these from an estate sale and also have 498 rounds with match on the head stamp from LC & FA.

    Thanks, again
    Donnie

    I would be careful about shooting the tracer rounds through a standard barrel myself. Military firearms, chrome lined bores and breach, will do reletively well, but I would not want to shoot them down a standard bore.
    The unarmed man is not only defenseless - he is also contemptible.

    Why is that? they don't light-up until they are out of the barrel and downrange.

    yeah, thats not an issue.

    I bet you could easily find someone to buy them from you! it would be a time saver for sure.
