"This ammo is reliable (100+ rounds no misfires, shooting 2-3\" groups at 100 (as well as I ever shoot with any ammo)).And, it's cheap. The guy at the local gun store told me it was bad for my hunting rifle, but with the savings from shooing this, I could buy a new rifle within 5 months."

"WOW great price's for $8.00 FOR 20 ROUND'S Men you can't beat that!order 800 round's fired them all no failure or jam at all in both riflenot very accurate on my M1D rifle little better in my Springfield 1903 but this steel core round can punch in steel plate at lease 3/8 inches at 100meter with bullet still intact , I must assume these are like the black tips AP rounds use for the BAR in WW2 ?think the Greek's polished these ammo to get around BATFE restrictions?Well doesn't really matter this is the good stuff have few hundren rounds with you it may come handy later on! I'm going to order few hundren round's more."

"I bought some of this from the gun store I go to.Its in better shape than the lake city surplus.I have a Remington 742 woodmaster.Its picky about the ammo it uses I guess.I had to many jam problems with this ammo.My gun was clean and lubed.I can fire lake city surplus all day with rarely a problem.Must be the brass I think.The powder is more fine than that in Lake City surplus and burns hotter."

"These are not steel core rounds.I pulled one of the bullets out of the caseing cut in in half and pulled the lead out.stuck a magnet to the the jacket and it stuck to it.Put it to the lead and it did not stick.Must be the metal in the copper jacket."

"The above review by mike is correct, I disected one round to discover it is a copper jacket(very tough, almost 1/4\"thick at the tip) with a lead core. still great buy for $ but not the steel core armor-piercing you are hoping for. Still, at the catolog price of under $6 per box this month buy some!"

"Used that exact ammo during my miliatry service here in the greek army.Total reabillity and a general hot round more that some of the us-imports.The guys at the factory did their best for the Garand rifle.Think that the main part is rough woods in Greece so the roound's penetration was considered...Suggested and at that price well i call it a bargain.Get as much as you can...Here in Greece we still love it.Perfect for Garands!!!"

"I have to agree that this is some darn good ammo. My M-1 loves this stuff. I have had no misfires at all, I shot almost 1000 rounds of this stuff. The only down side to this ammo is that it is HOTTTTTT very HOTTTT, and a little on the dirty side. After going through a bando i could almost lite a cigarette off of the barrell. I shoot a couple of of clips and then let the gun cool down for about 20 min and then a couple more. I would buyup as much as this stuff as i can for the $$$$$."

"I wish this stuff would work in my 742 woodmaster. The korean surplus works great in it. But its hard to find now."

"The range I go to sells this as its practice ammo. I sighted in a hunting rifle using this stuff, with some fall calculations as I hunt with 180 Gr. and this is only 150. I can make 1.5\" groups from a Savage 110 with an Accu-Trigger using this ammo, and I've been able to get a cold bore bullseys from 360 yards out. It's not the cleanest ammo you can shoot, and as one reviewer said earlier it heats up your barell pretty quickly, but I shot a Sig .40 cal for fun, and my hunting rifle gets maybe 15 rounds down the barrell over the course of a year, so no problems there. Bottom line: for the price, you can't find better ammunition."

"Out of my old M1 I was able to get 1.5 MOA with this stuff, in a test of the 70's and 80's produced lots. That's as well as my rifle does with any ammo, even supposedly match quality Lake City."

"I have purchased 1700 rounds of this ammo, and havent had a problem with one round. The round does spark when it hits rocks so dont fire in or around a dry area. Some people said it fires dirty but i have never had a problem with my bore or exit. Just the casual gunpowder smoke. The ammo is not an AP round but the actual projectile has an alloy of copper and some ferrous metal which gives an effect similar to AP, which is why Cheaper than Dirt stated it as AP in recent ads. I would suggest buying an arsenal of this ammo. Leave some for me though. ;)"

"This ammo is some of the best i've ever shot! Remington and Winchester Supreme don't even come close. It's almost as good as silver bear which is also good ammo and for about the same price. I got 1 inch group at 480 yards out of my Tikka and about 1.5 inch out of my Rem. M710. It has one of the toughest jackets i've ever seen to. Got through about 6 or 7 inches of steal no problem. This is great ammo."

"Be careful putting this through your garand. It's loaded much hotter than Lake City. One clip and it bent my op rod!"

"This is excellent ammo. I have payed $20.00 a box for 30x06 ammo and have found this to shoot just as well. Shoot your Garand all day and don't worry, it's hot, it's true, it's good. Will buy as long as supplies last."

"This is the same Ammo that the CMP sells to club's for use in M1 Garands and 1903/1903A3 Springfields, M1917 Enfields. The Greek Gov. Was loaned M1 rifles by the U.S. Gov. and produced ammo for them. The Greek Gov. later returned the rifles to the U.S. Gov. and they were sold through the CMP program. This Ammo can be found in the 20 round boxes and on Garand enbloc chip's and bandoleer's. This is first rate M2 ball ammo that is loaded with a Ball powder with a burn rate close to Winchester 748 instead of the normal IMR 4895 stick type powder. It shoots out to around 2850 FPS through the 24 inch barrel of a M1 rifle which is the proper spec's for M2 ball. In a M1 with a good barrel it shoots at 1.5 to 2 MOA. The bullet jacket is mild steel with a copper wash and lead core. Most of the LC 1960's M2 was loaded to around 2650 FPS due to its use by the South Vietnam Gov. forces who were using the M1 rifle in the early years of that confict. This is at the current time the best Mil. spec. M2 ball out there."

"I purchased 3 20 round boxes of this Ammo and I loaded two 8 round clips. The first round I shoot I got a slam fire. Out of the 16 rounds fired I got six slam fires. I have shoot about 400 rounds of Koren and Lake City and other US Ammo with no slam fires. I can not use this Ammo. Can someone tell me what the problem is. Thanks."

"This ammo turned out to be more reliable than my own handloads. My Garand dry fired only once due to a failure to feed. I suspect a pressure to oprod problem, but my own loads did this far more often. I did see one long streaking spark come out of my barrel that caused me some concern. I bought this ammo on Garand clips, and they were just awful. The punch for the clip latch was shallow on both sides of every single clip. My Garand will reliably puke out the whole mess after two or three shots. Never finished one single clip! It never has any problem holding my other clips. I won't even sell them because it would be dishonest. I single loaded my Garand, and shot several of the clips with their own ammo!!! Bullets good, clips BAD!!!"

"I have bought a couple of boxes from CTD and so far they seem to go through my Remington 710 with no problems. They burn OK and I get fair groupings at 100 yards +. I plan on getting more."

"This ammo is the best you can get for the M1 Garand! Anybody that says different should not own a Garand!The Greek's knew what they were doing when they made this stuff."

"I bought 500 rounds of this stuff for general purpose desert/varmint shooting. It has been great, accurate enough, hot enough for fairly flat at 300 yards, fairly clean, I am buying another 500 before its gone. I cant find any military surplus at any local gunshops anymore, may be the last of this, especially if the anti-gun folks have their way!"

"I've been shooting this ammunition through my M-1 for a year now. I had only one jam out of a few hundred rounds. It's accuracy is good enough to shoot small targets like groundhogs at over 200 yds with open sights. The ammo is hot but let your rifle cool down for a while and it should be fine. I found that out the hard way. I shot over 80 rounds at once and my front handguard was so hot it would have burnt me if I shot a few more rounds. Other than being hot it is good surplus ammo for the $."

"I bought a few boxes of this to mess around with in my Savage 110 I was still working on. I hadma fresh walnut stock and stained and sealed it, then went to shoot it and after 3 shots the wood behind the rear most part of the gun was starting to crack. Everything was screwed down tight. This ammo is HOT."

"I blasted away 60 rounds at a National Match yesterday and had a problem with only one (1) round - but that was a feed problem with my Garand, which messed up the cartridge. So far, so good....I'm buying more!"

"The Greek ammo is OK but the clips are poor. I couldn't shoot a full clip without it hanging open. Every clip required manual intervention."

"After reading several reviews, here at CTD and elsewhere, I bought 100 rounds of this Greek surplus 30-06 FMJ ammo to try out for target shooting because I liked the low price. It works out to about 43 cents per shot (including taxes and shipping), compared to about 85 cents per shot for the Federal Power-Shock 150 grain soft points that I normally shoot. I do not shoot an M-1 or any other type of automatic, so I didn't have any of the jamming problems like some users reported. I bought them to use in a new Remington Model 770 bolt action rifle, in which they worked flawlessly. Performance wise, I found no noticeable difference between the domestic factory rounds and the Greek surplus rounds. With either round I was consistantly shooting 2\" groups of five shots at 100 yards. Also, I found no more fouling of the barrel with the Greek surplus rounds than with the domestic factory rounds, so overall I am very happy with them. I don't hunt game and I'm not a military sniper, so for my use, these rounds are a great value at about half the cost of my usual domestic factory rounds, so I am ordering another 500 rounds right now.Shoot safe T-Pig"
