My one and only experience with POF, so perhaps this was outside the norm.
Yes, agree with above, "68 POF was dirty, not any FTF but all over the target at 100 yds. 20 cents a round was too much for that junk.

Default POF 06' Ammo

Has anyone used any of the Pakistani POF ammo, supposedly non corrosive berdan primed?
J&G Sales selling it.

After having used POF in .303, it would have to be very cheap (<$0.10 per round) before I'd buy any for use in my bolt guns. To be on the safe side I'd never shoot in an M1.

I've used older POF 30-06, seemed good enough to me. Only gripe I had was that the cases were extremely grimy on the outside. Can't say much stands out in my mind about the accuracy. Give it a try if the price is right.

I shot a lot of POF 7.62x51mm out of one of my M1A's. It left the rifle really dirty and was not that accurate.

I am currently shooting mixed 30-06 HXP shipped loose in the can. It leaves my Garand a little dirtier than LC and is not that accurate.

If I had the choice between POF and HXP 30-06, I would choose HXP.

I have read a few reviews elsewhere that it shot just fine with no failures. No comments as to the non-corrosive claims, the best I can see from people is "well you should clean your gun anyway so it doesn't make a difference." Except to me it does.

I have no means of doing corrosive testing myself but if it could be proven non-corrosive I would definitely consider it... I do know it's non-magnetic, which is a selling point for me. Seeing where the POF come already in en blocs which are about a $1/ea value too, might not be a bad deal.

Default 'pof'

Where does ammunition marked "POF" come from? Is it any good?
