    Military surplus ammo

    Hello Team and pardon my ignorance.

    Will be OK to shoot MIL surplus ammo on my new FN - Herstal Patrol Bolt Rifle...??? In this case is Southafrican and Australian .308 ammo.

    No damage in my personal experience. I've used both through my savage and the only thing that suffered was my accuracy for that day.

    The Australian military surplus ball ammo is actually pretty good stuff.

    What makes "match grade" ammo so accurate is many things.

    To sum it up in one word... Consistancy.
