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.

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.

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. . . .)

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.
