    I can’t remember if I got this ammo from CMP. Is this the Greek ball ammo? I have Perfecta, PPU, Federal, Lake City, and this. It’s .308 caliber. I know I bought the Greek 30-06 before. I don’t see ammo sales on the CMP website. D89CDC2C-C8DE-4924-AC5A-F189CD83A5A9.jpeg

    I bought a ton of that stuff cheap at Walmart a few years ago.
    It always gos bang, but accuracy is minute-of-enemy at best.

    It’s ZQI from Turkey. Low grade range fodder, and that’s being generous.

    Thanks for the info! Next question- is the brass worth reloading?

    In my opinion, no.

    I did reloaded some (one time) with no issues but It’s the thinnest brass I have ever found in .308. I wouldn’t trust it over multiple cycles.

    After you fire a dozen or so, weigh the cases for a sence of how uniform the manufacturing was. That would give you a starting point to consider. Were it me, ....... no, but, you make your own call there

    Funny, I never thought of them as an ammo maker -- mainly I associate MKE with their rather nice Walther PP knockoff.

    I’m just getting started with .308 Win so I’m still on the fence about reloading. I have a couple of scout rifles and I may or may not cut one or both of them loose for Savage model 12
