Hi Brownells, has Federal at $15 a box of 20; 300 rds is $225. If you watch the web site they usually have a 10% or $10 coupon. The e store also has cheaper .308 $184 for 200 rds. No reason to buy 3rd world surplus. My vote goes to e store, regards, Mike

I've personally shot quite a bit of it and it's been good to go. Sure fire, pretty clean, roughly 1.5 MOA depending on the gun.

If you're considering it, check out the many, many reviews on M14 Forum. The folks who have actually shot it tend to give it good reviews, while most of the negatives come from people who have never loaded a round in their rifle.

It has shot well for me in my AR10.
I have an unopened can, and the paint and finish on the can looks like something you would want on your new car.
I think I should wrap it in a wool blanket, it should be in a museum.
It is around out there at several different sellers, as mentioned.
The price is usually about the same, 0.35-0.40/round, shipping will usually be the decider.
I would not be afraid to try it to see how it does for you.

I bought a can of it around 2008. Fed it to my 2A Ishapore Enfield. It was good stuff, but I believe it was Berdan primed.
