Note on S/A ammo,
On a new chamber, you may have problems with the ammo sticking to the flutes. The S/A has slightly rougher cases (side walls) and the cases tend to flair/exspand more that other surplus ammo.

I had this problem breaking in a new FMP build for the first few hundred rounds trying to run S/A ammo.

After the 1st few hundred rounds did the problem go away?

I just bought a JLD and have shot about 400+ rounds of SA with zero issues.

Afte shooting 2 battlepacks through it I placed an order with AIM for 2 cases. I'm very pleased with the gun and the ammo.

Yes,
But Keep in mind that this was a FMP barrel, and not a JLD barrel. Chances are that the JLD rifle will shoot fine from the start with S/A ammo. Hell, everything else I have in 308 loves S/A ammo, so go figure. It was just the barrel break in on the FMP that was a bit dodgy from the start.

For the cheapest, but good ammo(not same lot though) try Southern ammo. Got the link from the 1919a4 site.
