||Pretty much what you expect. - 4/15/2013|
|I picked these up because they were the cheapest thing available and all I really wanted them for was for a barrel break-in. I picked up 3 boxes and it's pretty much what you expect from buying the cheapest ammunition online. I was able to get 1-2 inch groups with frequent 3 inch fliers at 100 yards. I was firing them out of a Rem 700 SPS bedded in an HS Precision. After my break-in, I purchased Federal 168g Sierra Match loads and they're consistently inside .5" at the same range. This proves that it's not the gun or the shooter. Also, those Federal Match king loads are $2 more than these Armscor. In a pinch, these Armscor rounds will work, but if you can avoid them, do it.
I hope this helps whoever is reading.|

||Responding to bad reviews - 8/31/2013|
|For those of you who have written bad reviews about this ammo because your groups weren't tight; don't blame the ammo, blame the person pulling the trigger. Ammo doesn't have a brain, so I would check your breathing technique rather than blaming an inanimate object. Furthermore, I would say you need more practice on the range.|

||Great ammo for the price! - 7/30/2012|
|I was very impressed with Armscor ammo. My DPMS Oracle LR308 loved it. Decent groupings about 1.5 to 2.0" groups at a 100yds. Also no misfires or jams. Would recommend this to anybody.|

||Pure junk - 7/6/2013|
|I bought a couple of boxes of this in 308 Winchester, mainly because of the price. On first inspection, the ammunition seemed to be well manufactured. My first box produced 2-3 inch groups a 100 yards. For the money, I thought it was passable. The second and third boxes were much worse. Groups were around 3 inches with an occasional 5 inch flyer. It became difficult to be certain of the actual pattern that my rifle was shooting.
As a comparison, I returned to the range this morning and shot box of Federal Vital Shok, and am feeling a lot better about my own capability and that of the rifle. Groups are back down to an inch.
Armscor must be having some rather serious quality control issues of late if the reliability from box to box is this bad. I don't recommend this stuff.|

||DO NOT RELOAD - 4/27/2014|
|I was starting to strip the old primers out when I realized that the shells all had different brands, and all were stamped with the NATO marking. This is NOT new ammunition. These shells are FACTORY RELOADS! They are good plinking ammo, but I had to discard them because I don't feel safe reloading 7.62 NATO that was re-manufactured and sold as .308 win.|
