Sounds to me like a strategy to whittle down my competition a mite!

The M1A went back in the case and I shot my 1917 without any sighters in that relay. It is hard to believe that any mil ammo outside of the Iron Curtain (remember that??) could be that bad, but it wasn't me or the rifle. I will try the Cavim in some other rifles, but am not optimistic. Anyone having experience with this ammo, please comment. BTW.. some years ago I was told by an experienced service rifle competitor that the South African 7.62 was good stuff. Of course, today I was told it wasn't. FWIW..... Good Shooting. ...
That stuff shot like crap when it was widely available. I am sure it is not any better now. One of the few 7.62x51 types that I ALWAYS stay away from.

Plenty of commercial PMP from South Africa is Boxer primed, but the Surplus 7.62x51, 5.56x45 and 7.62x39 FMJ imported in the past was all Berdan.

That is very good ammo. I still have 5 sealed battle packs for the 1980's. Only thing better is NM 308.
