    Can anyone tell me of a use for blank 30/06 or .308 ammo. I bought a mish mash of old Vietnam era bullet bullet boxes and inside of them was a bunch of blanks, here’s what it was like.
    One box was full of loaded Garland clips, all blanks.
    A couple other boxes blanks packed in bandoliers.
    Another box linked blanks. That was one full linked belt.
    I guessing I have at least a couple of thousand rounds.
    Any ideas what these could be used for?
    The good part was four boxes had match grade 30/06 and.308 all early 60’s manufacture. All very clean in the cans. That made the deal worth it.

    Rifle grenades?

    Hucking lines between some boats?

    Making loud noises?

    A portion of the typos in the above message might be my phone, the rest are just me.

    I have been wrong before...

    Sell it to a WW2 GI reenactor so they can play at shooting “Krauts” who play at shooting back.

    When the government's boot is on your throat, whether it is a left boot or a right boot is of no consequence.

    Hit me up with a PM. I may be interested in some of it. Some of it also may be collectable.

    Most of it was used for training or launching rifle grenades. The VFW Honor Guard that I was part of years ago used M1 Garands for funerals. They were still getting blanks in en-bloc clips from the government.

    Je ne regrette rien...
