Is there any type of ammo your STG58 does not like? Also how well does Match ammo run through them I know that the AR-15 don't like the Federal gold match and I was wondering if the STG58 had the same problem'. Stocks what is the best stock to get? I think I'm going to suite mine up to look like a nice sniper rifle but not to the point that all it would be good for is as a sniper rifle. Bi-pod how makes the best one? Last has anyone used the scope mount from Tapco? I just want to know how well it works or if anyone has had any problems with them.

Mine likes Hirtenburger. I haven't tried anything else. It is my understanding that with the adjustable gas system that the FAL can be adjusted so that a wide range of .308 will function. 357mag

The beauty of the FAL adjustable gas system, is that it enables that rifle to eat anything you stuff in it. Mine does well with Federal Match 168gr HP. Usually I shoot the readily available inexpensive milsurp. Argentine, British Radway Green, Portuguese, Hert. all work well, the Port. is said by many to be the most consistent. Check out FNFAL.com

I have found 1000rd of 308 for $89 that is slightly tarnished and for $105 1000rd of ball both are U.S. and Israeli made during the mid 70's and 80's 147gr BT bullets. I'm trying to find out how much shipping is right now and I'll post it when I get it.

Hirt, Radway Green, Malaysian and Winchester soft points have all cycled well through a buddy's STG that I've used.

I've used Radway Green and the 308 stuff from Sportsmans guide. I think it is Portuguese, not sure. Both work great.

Radwqay Green, Hirtenberger, PMP and the FMP? from Argentina I think.

Anyone use a Tapco mount for there rifle? How well does it work. Last what is the best price you have seen for an STG58 mine is $479 with 2 mags.
