It is good stuff for plinking. Be aware that there are two types of SA ammo, some is berdan and some is boxer. I have a couple of boxer SA cases and they are marked with the year up top(98), and at the bottom is 12.7mm. I believe the berdan stuff is marked differently but I'm not completely sure.

so is the stuff marked wit hthe 12.7 the bad or good stuff?

Should be good. You want boxer primed brass so you can reload. Make sure you ask them before you buy.

my SA 12.7 marked was berdan primed, it's still good stuff unless you want it to reload.

Look inside a fired case. If there is one hole at the bottom, in the middle, then its Boxer. If there are two holes like this : , then it's Berdan.

Kevin,
I don't really care what the headstamp is. I will give you 15 cents a round for your berdan brass. Any condition is fine.
Let me know how much you have to sell.
Thanks

David
