I'm completely new to AR rifles, other then bad experiences with Viet Nam-era M-16s. Marine recon let us carry what we wanted, and I placed great faith in my M-14, which NEVER let me down. I never had a misfire or failure to eject, period, and it put down whatever I shot. I have a new DPMS Panther .308 24" in the process of being shipped to me. My experience with civilian .308 Win relates to my Savage 12fvss. After experimenting with different manufactuers, I only shoot Federal ammo with it. I've been doing a lot of internet reading and I'm in need of advice. For serious shooting, I'll experiment with different rounds to see what it shoots best. But for plinking, I had hoped to be able to buy surplus NATO. I understand the differences in the NATO and Win .308, small as they may be. Will I be able to use them interchangeably in the DPMS?
Any expertise on the subject would be greatly appreciated.
