    Malaysian 7.62 NATO

    Has anyone used or heard of Malaysian 308 rounds? I was at a gunshow this weekend and an ammunition dealer had quite a bit of it but didnt know anything about it so was hesitant to buy any.

    AIM and a couple of others were selling it in 900 round wood cases (300 rds per 30 cal ammo can). I bought a case from AIM. The ammo looks fine, I don't anticipate any problems, but I have not fired any.
    Anytime I can stockpile .308 (7.62x51 NATO) rds at a good price I do it.

    Works good for me, a lot better than the Korean stuff I had been shooting. I'm shooting an M1 Garand with a .308 insert and its almost target rifle accurate.

    Every rifle is differnt, seems like some will like one surplus amo better than another.
    My M1A loves German DAG or MEN 7.62 , best 10 rd group at 100 yds off bench was 1 5/8 inches. Same rifle with Malaysian grouped 6 inches. I sold the rest of the Mal to a guy would runs it through his 1919 and doesnt care much about accuracy
    You might also want to try Radway Green 7.62 should be the same price as MAL

    I have quite a bit left from my heyday about 10 years ago. It is not match grade, but it goes bang, isn't corrosive, and is MOM accurate.
