As far as the ammo to use, inlets you have had your gun worked on by a qualified gunsmith stay away from match ammo.

Stick with ammo that have a 150 grain bullet. The heavy bullets strain the gas system, the lighter bullets have a higher velocity meaning that the gas pressure curve is off for correct functioning. It will probably work for a while and then start to malfunction. Same thing for the heavy bullets.

Times are tough, ammo is expensive, there will be no warning shots.
