About This Military Surplus 308 / 7.62x51 AmmunitionThese 308 Win rounds were made for the German military sometime around the 1990s. For having sat around for two or three decades they’re still in remarkably good condition with only some cosmetic oxidation, and their non-corrosive primers ensure that they’ve remained in full working order. These rounds’ factory fresh brass casings have had their headstamps machined clean off in preparation for the consumer market, but they still sport their caliber designation printed in ink.
This cartridge sports a 148 grain projectile. The bullet’s jacket is made of cupronickel, an alloy with a distinctive silverish color. Please note that cupronickel is a magnetic alloy owing to its inclusion of iron or manganese as a strengthening agent (the latter becomes ferromagnetic when combined with copper). In any event, their jackets will let these rounds’ bullets feed more reliably, shoot cleaner, and pass through any materials you’d be inclined to direct them at.

Good Plink Ammo, Tricky Re-Load

This ammo is great for the plink shooter looking for a good deal and not expecting to re-load. Your average .308 cycles well and out of the 2,000 I purchased, I found only 14 rounds that showed tarnish and that tarnish was only greening on the brass that was easily removed with a bit of sand cloth.
That being said, downsides; Berdan Primers. Unless you are looking for a project, or are an experienced re-loader, don't expect to re-use your brass from this ammo.
The M1A was having trouble cycling out a fired case every once and a while. I think the recoil was a little too weak to fully cycle. The M14/M1A field manual states that a 145gr. bullet should be used to avoid damage from hot rounds, this 148gr. round shouldn't be enough extra weight to cause a miss-cycle so I do believe age of powder may be a factor. Especially with the slight signs of tarnish present. AR10 cycled just fine, FAL cycled just fine...
To sum up, not a bad buy for the price.
