    The privi 5.56/223 in 55 an 62gn shot pretty good out of my AR. i don't see why the 308 would be any different. Aim surplus has been selling it at a decent price for a while now.

    No problem! I would buy some but I just blew my ammo budget on 1000 rounds for the AR.

    That being said, I've had good luck with the PPU. Still have some "Match" .308, and while it's not quite the same quality as American-made match ammo, it's certainly not bad. Probably considered a match round simply for the fact that it has a 175gr OTM BT bullet. Brass is reloadable, too, in case you or someone you know is into that sort of thing.

    They have some other .308 that's not corrosive also at a fair price.

    If you mean the Portuguese, that has corrosion problems. Lots of people have complained about it.

    I'd look for either South African surplus, the PPU/Privi stuff, or just "splurge" on some Lake City XM80C if you can find some. I've shot some of the Portuguese stuff, and although it's not corrosive, there is definitely some heavy oxidation on the brass of it. Still functions flawlessly in my SCAR.

    Boss, we should get together and go shooting sometime. I'm sure there's a few guns in each other's collections we may want to try!

    I'm not selling the stuff just thought it was a good deal even if it's corrosive and for the price on the Portuguese I would polish each one with steel wool while sitting in front of the boob tube. .308 is so expensive now I'm thinking if I don't start reloading soon I will get rid of my rifles in that caliber.

    Samco charges an arm and leg for shipping... The ammo has been sitting for years with them! Look what they are asking on their Iranian 30/06... NUTS!

    I've shot about 100 rounds of the Portuguese Nato ammo out of my Browning BLR with no issues at all. It's accurate, and while the cases are not "shiny" they are not badly corroded in my opinion. I paid $70 for 200 rounds about 7 years ago, so if the shipping is anywhere near reasonable I think that site has a pretty good deal.

    The Privi match grade stuff is decent, it's accurate and doesn't foul things up too badly. CTD used to sell RUAG non-corrosive at about $6 per 20 rd box, but it didn't shoot consistently and it was a waste to shoot it beyond 100-150 yds. Fine for plinking though. Now CTD is out of it so I don't even bother looking at anything on their website any more.

    Wideners has Pakistani surplus non-corrosive linked .308 for pretty cheap (1000 rds for $360).

    Last time I was at Beikirchs they were charging $12.95/Box for Federal Lake City Boxes (140ish grain Lake City Brass in White Boxes with Black Text labeled 7.62x51), and $19.99/Box for the Federal Premium Sierra Match King 168gr Rounds. That is the best price I've found for the Match Kings ANYWHERE (including the net in bulk, where I found 500 rounds for 498 bucks at The Sportsmans Guide).
