    I have some ammunition that I inherited and have no idea what they go to...

    First up, 351. On the back of the case it's stamped 351 on top and 87 on the bottom. What little research I've done online I've found these may be fired from a Winchester Model 1907...? The clip is stamped 31 and hold 10 rounds, here is a picture below...

    The second one is a .30 Carbine with a clip, the case is stamped 'R-P .30 Carbine'. I'd like to know if someone knows what gun fires these and what clip this gun might go to...

    Thanks for any help!

    It's hard to tell anything about the first set without something for scale. To me they look like copper washed 7.62x39 in a stripper clip for an SKS. But again, with no measurements or size reference it's hard to tell anything.

    Yup---Probably Norinco 7.62x39, the early 90's stuff had that copper wash. Probably
    at least mildly corrosive. Manufactured 1987---the 351 probably refers to "The peoples
    collective ammunition production plant number 351" or some such.

    Sure as heck ISN'T 351 Winchester--that one was a straight walled rimless that
    didn't last long. .351 Winchester Self-Loading - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    not sure what weapon they belong to...

    the first two pictures are on a clip, the last two pictures are of a magazine.

    M-1 carbine 30 round magazine and the stripper clips are chinese copper washed (351) Probably norinco or jing wa,depending on which means they are lead core and not steel core.I would guess steel core with the date stamp on em.The stripper clips were made for the SKS and stacked and wrapped in paper in 550 round sardine cans.......They will go to any AK, SKS,RPD or what ever will shoot the 7.62x39....

    Yeah, the stuff on the stripper clips is for sure 7.62x39. I have a bunch just like it.

    Ruger had a model of the Blackhawk, I believe, that was chambered for the .30 caliber carbine.
