The latest Aim flier has the South African .308 in it. Is this stuff any good? I want to shoot it in my M1A and FAL. Also want it for stash ammo. TIA,Nick

Very good ammo. You better hurry and buy some as it is going fast.

I hope to heck it is. I have about 15K of the stuff stashed.

It shoots fine in my FALs, M1As and .308 Garand. I'd buy more but I'm tapped out for now.

My M1A has failures to extract with it about 5% - 10% of the time, and I have noticed this in every lot number of SA I've tried (i.e., it's likely not just "one bad batch"). Australian and Winchester white box both function perfectly through the same rifle, although I only have one .308 rifle, so I'm not 100% sure if it's the gun or the ammo. Aussie/WWB are also somewhat more accurate.

Either way, it makes good "ammo ban" ammo, being sealed in plastic/coming in metal ammo box and all.

Very good stuff. Get it while you can - it is no longer being imported. What is being sold is what is left.... and we dont know if we will see any more from SA.

I wish I had more. I like the SA and the Port.

Surprisingly accurate from my AR-10 for surplus ammo. I still have several cases left.

It is extremely risky to use in M1As. It should be reserved exclusively for FALs.
