Anybody try this AMMO from Military Gun Supply?

Not yet, though I just picked up 300 rounds to try at Gunstock.

Do let us know how it shoots, the price sure is right. Being that it's mil spec I don't know why it wouldn't be a good buy.

Anybody else?

All went bang. No failures in my DMPS or RRA. Didn't shoot for small groups, but I bump a few mags to see if there were any problems...and there were none.

Some had some tarnish, but most were pretty clean. I'd buy more in a second. I'll try some groups the next time I go to the range.

I think i would rather shoot Wolf than trust loose packed milsurp.... at that price. Maybe if it was the same price or cheaper than Wolf....... I dont want a blown up gun.... too risky for me.

Why is it dangerous? I would think mil spec is safe.

Anytime ammo is "surplussed" it is done so for a reason. Sometimes it is old. Sometimes it was stored improperly. Sometimes its just overproduction. And sometimes... it has been determined to be "bad" for one reason or another.

So yes, anytime you shoot imported surplus, there is some risk attached. Whats good, is when enough people buy and try, and report back that its good stuff, like the South African, Port, Spanish, etc.... And sometimes, like the Souther Ammo .308.... you get some that has weak cases and fail when fired, blowing up the guns from time to time.

It happens.

How much do they add on for S&H?

My old college roommate got a can of it from MGS and tried it this weekend. Said it ran just fine through his new custom, flat-top, Uber-AR. He is a good evaluator, having retired as a Lt.Col. after 22+ years active duty in the USArmy.

BTW, it looks to me to have been belted at one time. Also, it isn't a clean and spotless as new manufacture. But it works.

I tried 20 rounds in my M16 this past weekend.

Went bang with not hang ups.

I tried it for a buddy, don't know that I'd buy much of it.
