Has anyone tried the S&B 308 surplus ammo. 1980 production.?
Looking to see how it does in Socom 16s and standard M1As.

Where did you see this for sale? I ask as I shoot their 45ACP a lot and would be willing to give the .308 a try.

One thing I do know is that it is corrosive....
What do you have to do different than clean your gun after shooting it?
Do you have to use anything special?
How soon do you have to clean the gun?
Is it just the barrel you are worried about?

I use to shoot it all the time when I could still get it and it was non corrosive and damn accurate.

Just clean the gun thoroughly.


Do you have to use anything special?

No, nothing special. Soap and hot water are the best.


How soon do you have to clean the gun?

It is best to clean the gun while it is still warm from shooting, But, that is only because the carbon hasn't hardened yet. The time between the last round and clean up will vary depending upon the climate. More arrid areas will allow more time than humid areas. If you clean the gun within a few hours you should be fine.


Is it just the barrel you are worried about?

No, you need to be very thorough when cleaning after corrosive ammo. The bolt needs to be disassembled and all of the parts cleaned. Also, if you are shooting an auto loader, the gas system must be cleaned.
Cleaning after corrosive ammo really is no big deal. It doesn't require any magical hoodoo. Just clean the gun when you're done. Thats it.

The ammo is sold by samco.... the only bad thing is they are charging 54.00 case shipping.
