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

Captain William Mattingly at the Battle of Bulltown, West Virginia 1863
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.

For a cheaper 308, I'd shoot it but I wouldn't put it through my SCAR or Colt.
One cans worth of experience. No issues of note, plenty accurate at 200 yards for blasting.
|Muzzle flash |
I bought some a while back but have not shot it yet. Does it have a flash? (You know I'd be interested in that. . . .)

I bought a 900 rd case from SGA ammo . My AR10has munched it right up, no ftf. made in 1981 comes in aneat mahogany crate, i would buy again.
Can't say about the 7.62, but I have shot Malaysian 5.56. It shoots reliably and about as well as any M193 type. Bullets pulled and replaced with SMK or Rem PL ("Mexican Match") shoots very well.
Shot a bunch of this thru a FAL,M1A,HK91,and a 7.62Garand with no problems,should be good to go.
