Saw some of this surplus ammo and wondering if there are any known issues with it.

I've shot almost 500 rounds of it through M1A and FAL with no issues, and it seems pretty accurate as well.

ETA: Note that although it is brass, it is berdan primed and so not useful for reloading.



"We may consent to be governed, but we will not be ruled." - Kevin D. Williamson, 2012

"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."

Charles Triplett O’Ferrall of Virginia - In Congress, May 1, 1888

A buddy of mine bought a crate. There has been some complaints of it being “smokey” at the range and some rounds hard primers causing failure to fires. Best guess would be 5-10% range. The rifle is a stock dpms ar-10. I would avoid it and pay up a little more for newer production.
