I recently scoped my DSA FAL and am pleased with the results so far using Port surplus ammo.

I'm thinking about deer hunting with this rifle a time or two this year and am looking for some quality hunting ammo. I'm very interested in seeing how well this rifle will group with some good hunting ammo.

Any recommendations?

Try some PMC ammo. It's decent stuff and they make hunting and plinking rounds. [url]http://www.pmcammo.com/rifle/rifle_ballistics.html [/url] CRC

Used this last year in '06, but they sell it in 308 (150 grn). Ballistic tip ammo did such a number on deer, lost a whole front shoulder, suggest ya use a neck shot.

This is even more impressive than the above round. FWIW, I'd buy a box of Fed., Win., Rem., Hornady, all in 150grn. or 165grn. Ballistic Tips, whatever local store sells and pick the round my rifle shot the best groups with as the BTs are definate deer droppers. Mike

I'd go with the Hornady 165 grn. SST also.

Hornady 150 Gn SST Polymer tip and controlled expansion.

Ive hand loaded 165gr Hornady sst rounds and shot them from my FAL. Its was very accurate and has good expansion.

I'd stay from the Remington Core-Lokt. The expensive "controlled expansion" ammo I have found to be less effective on deer than regular soft points. As others have said, the ballistic tip type bullets work great too.
