Radway Green British Military surplus .308 / 7.62 NATO ammo

From Ammunition to go. Does anyone know if this is good stuff? For .308 the price seems OK.

I'd be interested if I knew it was good ammo, but that's a LOT of money for a pig-in-a-poke!

Thanks!

"Radway Green British Military surplus .308 / 7.62 NATO ammo. It has a 145gr FMJ copper jacketed bullet. This ammo was manufactured at the Radway Green Arsenal in England, for the British Department of Aerospace. This ammo is stamped with the NATO cross and L2A2 headstamp. It is brass cased, berdan primed, non corrosive and mostly 1990s production. It comes loaded on 5rd stripper clips for use in M14 magazine guides, FAL mag chargers or Enfield 2A rifles...."

i hear its some decent ammo but turns off some people because its berdan primed making the brass useless to reloaders

I've shot quite a bit of it and I like it.

Bean is right about the Berdan priming being a downside if one handloads, but if not handloading, this is typically 1st class ammo.

Prices have been all over the board, so I couldn't speak to the value of the buy, but the quality of the ammo is GTG.

same stuff, .14 a round cheaper

SOG

Winchester USA3081 also pops up from time to time, clean accurate, and reloadable for about $130 per 200rd battle pack, pretty much the same price as the OP's ammo

Great ammo, the SLR/FAL loves it. But it is berdan primed, so reloading is a bitch.
