    Is this stuff good?

    Well guess what. Read Caramel's post again (post#14). He knows. He shouts it out of fine guns.

    Me, I just keep feeding it to 2 semi-autos (FNH's FNAR and ATRS's Modern Hunter) and they keep eating it with great satisfaction. I get the occasional sub MOA group. Simply the very best 7.62/308 plinking ammo available in Canada. As a bonus, it's serious quality brass for those who reload.

    I bought 25 cases when they first came out (Montreal area group purchase) and I just kept a few for me. I shot 2 cases of it already and regret not keeping more. I might (should) jump on this deal.

    At that price, I would not even bother with group purchase.

    ... unless Tradex gives a sweeter deal for 10 cases or more... (hint hint, nudge nudge)

    Too bad I don't have anything needing that much .308 or else we could split. My .308 is my deer rifle, so no need for me here

    I was interested in this ammunition, but wisely I decided to try a couple boxes first before buying in bulk. I bought some 1980 boxer primed hurtin' burger from a local gun shop. I could not recommend it. 3 shot group sizes off a bench with front and rear bags were atrocious at 5" to 7" at 100m!!! I shot it through a M14S (M305) and a Savage Axis. For reference, the M14S typically shoots 2" to 3" with Norinco bulk steel case 308 147gr, 1.5" with Federal Power Shok 150gr. The Axis can print sub 1" to 1.5" with Power Shok 150gr.
