I have heard that the HK91 and clones will run this stuff. I know anybody with a M14/M1A or AR10 won't touch it. Anybody have any experiences with it in a HK. I just got a PTR-91 and will buy the cheaper Indian if it will run without breaking my rifle or blowing up in my face. Any experience

The ammo is junk in any rifle, don't even waste your time buying it.

If you want something that will shoot safely and is pretty accurate for surplus, get the Aussie.

It shoots great outa my PTR-91....

Maybe I got an earlier batch, but my Indian SMLE and Chinese M1A like it.

I have put 800+ rounds of indian through mine and have only had 2 bad rounds that were spotted right out of the can. Both were bent brass, and for the price, how can I knock that ? I only pay $60 for a can of 640 rounds that I have to drive 10 minutes to pick up. I know its cheap surplus ammo, but I am using it for plate shooting and just having fun at the range. If I really wanted to shoot just for the sake of shooting small MOA, I would use a better round. As far as hurting the rifle, I think NOT. Lets face it, its a BATTLE RIFLE! Its made to take the use and abuse. I would agree that there is a lot better out there, but I would rather buy 640 rounds for $60 than spend the same for 60-80 rounds of something like Black Hills. I guess it depends on what or why you are out shooting to help determine the rounds you should use. IMHO....

The indian ammo is very smokey and I think was designed only for signaling

For some reason my 91 really doesn't like it. It will stop firing after 500 rounds or so because of the build up in the chamber. So I say put in a little more money for the Aussie stuff.
