    I use to see alot of this ammo in Kosovo... it works fine for what it is (its designed for machineguns and G-3 rifles things of that sort).

    Ive heard mixed reviews on it mel. I'll call them right now and see what its all about.

    Ok...here we go.
    Its 146 grain boat tail stuff, pretty basic. From what people are telling me its getting 1.5 MOA groups in sporter rifles. I also found out that they've gone to a flat rate for shipping.

    If you dont want to pick it up its 260 bucks to the 48 states for 1600 rounds.
    Mabye we could get sniper central to invest in 300 rounds for an eval mel? I dont own a 308 chambered rifle so i've got nothing to shoot out of.

    Im 99% sure it is standard 147gr FMJBT... but i wouldnt expect it to be extreemly accurate or anything... we would use some of it sometimes for training instead of blowing it up... you can expect 2 MOA or so with a .25 to .5 MOA rifle. Like i said... its machinegun / G-3 / FAL ammo... not anything like M-118 or M-118LR. Somthin i do like about this ammo is its really cheap... as you can see.

    in norway we use standard NATO ammo in NM149, msg-90 and ssg-3000
    (http://www.snipercentral.com/nm149s.htm)
    up to 600 metre in daylight, that is the demend for a sniper. but ti is no problem to reach 800-900. this ammo is employ in AG-3 and mg-3.

    re

    I would assume it to be ammunition purchased for their FN FAL's, however shortly after the Falklands war they switched to a home made 5.56mm rifle.
