Well i finally got the ammo from USA AMMO on Feb 14th. So it took from Jan 26 to Feb 3rd to get the stuff on the UPS truck. Then UPS decided the package needed to take the scenic route and took from the 3rd till the 14th to get here.
Not too happy with either company at the moment, especially UPS because they usually deliever much better results than this.
The package started in Idaho went west to Spokane, WA for some reason, then south to Salt Lake City Utah then to Earth City, MO. Usually when stuff comes from Earth City, MO from Brownells or Midway USA its here in like 3 days. Instead my package when to Memphis TN and sat there for a day and half without moving and then to Jackson MS finally to the house.
As a matter of fact, I ordered fine stones to work on trigger work from Brownells after the USA Ammo package was on the truck, and the Brownells still got here first.
The ammo itself looks uniform enough and has a weight within 1 grain difference but from the weights I keep getting I have a feeling they are all gong to be pretty warm loads, especially the 308s.
Darkbarrel, I'll let you know how dirty they are and if they vary on the range. But be prepared to weight 3-4 weeks to get the stuff if you order them. I'd rather go out and buy the Monarch steel cases, which I've had good results with in my FAL.
Just curious, what gun did you have in mind for use with the 308s?
