    AMA .30-06 "60" Cupro-nickel?

    Hello forum-mebmbers,

    I recently bought some Danish AMA .30-06 with the 60 headstamp. I have shot AMA ammo before with the 63 headstamp but those had a copper jacketed bullet. The 60 headstamp ammo had a silver colored bullet. Is this an cupro-nickel bullet? And if so, how should I clean the barrel after shooting?

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge,

    Leen

    Hello,

    A small update on the ammunition. I took a look on the box where the ammunition is packed in. It sais in german: FMJ-Bleikern verzinnt 9,6 g. This is in English: FMJ-leadcore tinned.

    So it seems to ben no Cupro-nickel. Do you guys have any experience cleaning out tin of a fouled barrel?
