I am looking at buying some bulk 308 ammo, and I have come across some good deals on Lake City, PMC, and American International. I prefer to avoid really dirty ammo unless the price is just too good to pass up. Have any of you used any of these three ammos (PMC, Lake City, Amer. Int. or some other brand worth looking into), and what are your suggestions?

P.S.
Let me add Prvi partizan to that list.

Thanks in advance.

OK, you do realize that Lake City does not make .308 ammo, right? Please familiarize yourself with the differences between .308 and 7.62 X 51 (NATO).

If you can get Lake City 7.62 for a reasonable price, grab every round you can afford!

PMC is supplier to the ROK military,

Their ammo sometimes has a funny kim-chi smell after firing (not kidding here!) but its good stuff.

Lake City Army Ammunition Plant (LCAAP) is operated by Federal under government contract. This ammo is overruns from military production runs.

Um, OK. Just because some site posts info does not make it accurate. You know that, right? Brings to mind an ad in Cheaper Than Dirt several years ago. ".380 ACP FMJ ammo. Perfect for self defense"
