Default 7.62x51 Ammo question

I have been looking for some 7.62x51 ammo for my Fal, Cetme and M1A and have been coming up short. I have seen alot of ammo from Tula and Herter's and was wondering how good it is. I have several battle packs of German and South African ammo that I am trying to save and was looking for more ammo that I can shoot with my 3boys that are coming home on leave from the military in December.

Ammunition To Go : 20rds - 7.62 x 51mm FAME S.A.C. NATO 147gr. Ammo [FAMESAC762] - $12.79

I am not sure about the others, but the CETME needs NATO spec ammo. The South African and Portugese are some of the best. There are a number of desirable makers including Radway Green (British) and DAG (German).
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.

The Winchester white box ammo is some good inexpensive stuff that shoots well. It seems to be easy enough to find.
