    G3/91 DAG blue ammo question

    Looking at getting the bolt and a couple K of the DAG blue training ammo and am curious how the accuracy is out to say 100 yards? maybe further? I see that the claim is accurate out to 300 yards.

    Looking to supplement my use of "copper" ammo with plastic since its going to be much cheaper. Still punches paper at a decent distance it seems. $180ish for 1k rounds is better than $800+ depending on make etc.

    Been working more with my PTR-91 since I use it for 2 gun matches around here and looking for other options. I've been happy with the DAG blanks I acquired years ago but those don't punch holes. They give me good practice with more dynamic training when I'm on the range by myself seeing what methods work and what don't without blowing through a ton of money on ammo.

    The stuff cycles fine with the proper bolt. The only downside I've run into is if you have a malfunction in a hot rifle the plastic will deform from the heat.

    Special bolt for it in a G3 or Cetme?

    It requires a special bolt in a G3. There is no bolt commercially available for a Cetme. The dedicated bolt has a fixed bolt head and is considerably lighter than a standard G3 bolt. Dan's Ammo used to sell the dedicated bolt for around $120 years ago with the purchase of a case of ammo.

    I made a dedicated bolt for my Cetme, there is a thread about it here someplace that gives the necessary weight.

    Found it:

    Hk Practice bolt and carrier = 475g or about 1lb 3/4 oz.
    From this thread: http://www.militaryfirearm.com/Forum...-DAG-BLUE-bolt

    Dans still lists the bolt for sale at $119.

    H&K LIGHT WEIGHT BOLT $119.99 Add To Cart!!! H&K rollerless light weight bolt. German army surplus. For use with the short range training ammo in the G3, HK91 and some copies. Shipping included on this item.
