How's the quality on the Igman 7.62x51mm ammo I see around? I'd like to get some more .308 now that the tax return is in.
How good is it compared to the South African and Portugese that was around a few years back?
What about compared to Privi or Lithiuanian?

I got some Igman 6.5x55SE. It's ok, I'm getting about 3" groups out of my Swede Mauser. With Swede surplus I get about 1.5" groups. These are with iron sights and old eyes, ymmv.

The Igman is Boxer primed, but the flash hole is too small for the de-priming pin, so reloading is tricky.

I can't really compare it to the others, but it shot well for me and it also seems to reload nicely. If the price is right get all you can afford.
