Default Urge resisted no longer

Well, I couldn't help it. I just had to open one spam can.
This is a can of Chinese ammo from 1966.
My pics came out in reverse order.
As you can see, the 51 year old ammo is still perfectly pristine.

I will test fire the open 20 round pack, though I'm confident that it will function just fine.






Good thing I didn't need to open this thing in a hurry.

The first thing I noticed when breaking the seal was the smell of camphor.

I repacked it all into an ammo can with some other Chinese ammo that was laying around.
For corrosion protection, I threw in a couple of desiccant packs and a camphor block. Good to go for another 50 years.

Were you able to repackage any of the smell?
How much $$ for a small ziploc of it?
Got any of the paper wrappings left??

I put a camphor block in the can, so it should smell pretty good when opened. My hunch is that they treated all of the paper in the can with it.
PM me about a sample.

(envious grimace) "Really good shit there, Maynard"

Seriously, isn't that just flippin' cool to look at? And - you KNOW what you have in that can. It's good to go if and when needed.

Would suck t tear into a can when it's for real and find out all is not well.

That's for sure.

The decision was made to open this particular can because it had been stored in a basement and had gotten very wet.
Luckily, the 50 year old seal was still good.

Was this ammo already in stripper clips or did you do that?

The ammo on strippers came that way. It wasn't from the can that I just opened, I just threw it in there to fill in the extra space. Same with the loose rounds you see in there.

It would suck... and I'd recommend anyone storing Yugo M67 crack any open that they plan to keep for that exact reason. Many of those were damaged and resealed, or inspected and resealed, and a few crates I've seen were even mixed batches of opened ammo tossed back in a crate and soldered back shut.

I finally got around to test firing some of this ammo. As expected, they fired flawlessly. The gunshow refugee SKS used in the test firing pretty much launched the empty cases into orbit, so there isn't much to take pics of.
