"A friend of mine and I bought a large quantity of this to split between us. He has A DPMS Panther, I have a good ol' M1A. This ammo would not cycle his rifle at all. It would feed through mine, but not well. Had a tendency to incompletely burn, which means I got showered a few times with burning powder fragments. Not to mention the fact that I had to make sure I cleared the bore.Combine that with the fact that a good deal of this ammo is dented, split, deformed, or has the bullet inserted at an angle into the neck of the casing, and the \"good price\" starts to look a little shabby.As for accuracy--If Hindus are pacifists, this ammo is the reason. Shooting with iron sights at 100 yards, I could not keep this on the paper using a 100 yd scope target. This is from the same rifle that will shoot <2\" groups using almost any other 147-150 gr ammo out there, including Spanish NATO surplus.If you just want to pick up some of this to stick in a 30-rd mas and spray targets at 25 yds, great. If you want to do some serious shooting (or simply want to hit the target at distances farther than you can spit), buy something else."

"Shot this ammo out of two M1a's, one a scout cycled just fine, the other is a loaded standard which is more finicky wuold not cycle every time but the brass is good and have reloaded it to M852 and M118LR specs don't forget to deburr or swage primer pockets can't beat the price. Headstamp was OFV 75 M80. Did I mention it is Boxer not Berdan primed CTD should double check."

"It looks a little dirty and tarnished. No failures in my Ishapor 2A. Not match quality accuracy but good enough to hit a 6\" gong at 100 yds 9/10 shots."

"Cheap stuff! But it shoots as expected. not very good! Either way i am satisfied with my buy. Out of my rem xr 100 it is perfect for clanking a steel plate or rocks at 300 yds. not gonna shoot sub moa. groups but for shootin out of a bolt gun it works. would not shoot it out of a nice M1a but its ok."

"I have two ammo cans (1280 rounds) of Indian Ammo sitting on the living room floor (looking at it right now, out of the corner of my eye). A friend and I bought a bunch of this crap at a gun show for 16 cents a round. This stuff is so bad I don't know what to do with it. I winced as he had to take a rubber mallet to the charging handle to get the crappy brass out. After watching him beat the heck out of his rifle, I won't shoot a single round of this garbage. It seems it will shoot, if you inspect every round very closely. About 1 out of 15 rounds you'll need to toss aside (cracked/distorted casings, so grungy you need a brillo pad). I'll never buy Indian-Anything ever again. If you buy this stuff, inspect it closely. It's also grossly inaccurate beyond 50 yards Seriously, I never knew how important ammo quality was at close range utill our experience with Indian ammo!Buy and shoot what you want. Good luck and happy shooting!Andy"

"Shot 150 rnds of this through my M1A. It didn't group as tight as my Privi but it was still cheap enough to have fun with. Also, the brass is reloadable."

"For what it is this is decent plinking ammo. I use it in my Ishapore 2a so I don't know if it cycles well in a semi-auto but it goes bang every time. Now that 7.62x51 surplus is in shorter supply it's a fair bargain."

"This stuff functions well enough on the 50 yard range to cycle an AR-10 with in which to break it in. This ole heavy mechanisum DPMS AR-10 had a hard time at first. A semiauto rifle like this needs some attention when it is new out of the box. It felt real stiff and seemed to be stuck to a point I just broke it down and lubed it up real well. I took the rifle to the 50 yard range with a new 4-14 power scope for a test run.I had no idea what this set up would do at first. My experiance is with 9mm stuff of less. .308 was pretty vast for me.I placed one round of this .308 ammo in the mag and engaged the it into the lower receiver. Drew back the charging handle and let it chaimber the round. Doubke checked that this round was set well in the chaimber.Looked through the scope set for 50 yards and started to draw back the two stage trigger. Finally, a definite expulsion of the Indian round found its way to the target. Which was a good bit off from a bullseye.I adjusted the scope with only one shot at a time snapped into the 10 round mag. One click was .5 inches. after 20 more shots, I got consistant bulleyes into the 4 inch diameter from 50 yards.Put 2 round in. Wanted to see succesive controlled semiauto fire from this weapon still on the 50 yard range. The first round chaimbered and fired but the second was a feed jam.I pulled the upper off of the lower and applied some Purple extreme Synth lube into the upper around the bolt in its carrier. Spent a bit of time cycling it by hand and applying more lube. After a few cycles it began to get smoother. Puller the bolt out and rubbed it all down with shop rags. Then, put it all back together after lubing the gun well.I put two rounds in the mag and snapped it in during the next fire period on the range. the two round chaimbered and ejected well. Put 5 rounds into the mag and fired those quickly.All together, 45 rounds of this stuff helped get my riflefrom a stuck pup into a reasonably dependable and useable weapon. I p...."

"Shoots good at 150-200 yrds. (3-4 MOA) Never a miss-fire or damaged casing. Will buy again. Great .308 plinking ammo. If you're looking for a tack-driver. Go some place else."

"depends on what year it was made. the 70's stuff was produced when enland/radway green were running things. later in the late 80's -90's india had taken over and manufacturing and quality got bad."

"Has anyone else pulled the bullets on this stuff? Since I reload, I pulled some of the projos to see what they looked like after some very lackluster performance at the range (7\" groups out of my CETME at 100m that usually shoots ~2\"). The bullets that I pulled, about 50 of them, varried in weight from 144 to 153 grains. The bases were neither concentric or all identical. Lead was sometimes protruding from the bases of the jackets and not all the jackets were rolled fully and finished properly. Powder charges went anywhere from 39 to 48 grains of a powder that I don't recognize. As stated in previous posts, it is cheap ammo and you get what you pay for."

"This is pretty good ammo for the buck. Shot almost 300 rounds out of Cetme, at 100 yards , w/o any misfires. It's not very accurate. The main negative for me was that due to its cloth packaging and corroding stipper clips the ammo is very dirty and gets a lot of junk into the mags. Had to blow off the dust and rust of almost each round before magging it."

"I just ran 60 rounds through my cetme with mixed results. I didn't expext this to be of Lake City quality, but I had approx. 4 jams I think from incomplete burn. You know bolt 1/3 the way back stopped dead? My cetme is real new so I thought maye its just still tight so I'm still not absolutley sure. Any thoughts? If I owned an M1A I wouldn't get near it with this stuff though. Happy shuten!"

"jamed the mags, jamed the cetme, one fell apart upon battery others the bullets fell out of by hand. if you want to save your rifle dont buy this ammo on the good side i pulled it all and loaded up some nice ammo with the brass."

"As with everything in life you get what you pay for. The store I bought my M1A Socom16 threw in a can of 800rnds of Indian FMJ. Only had one jam due to a warped shell I hadnt caught when loading, but it is a mess to clean back up. The brass isnt too bad for reloading."

"So far I have run 1250 rounds of this stuff through my HK G3 and not a single problem, no jams, mis feeds, short shots, ect...I actually enjoy the stuff...enough to buy 4 crates. Accuracy is decent, 100 yard groups are hanging around 2-4 inches. The only problem I have with this ammo is how dirty it is. Sure its non corrosive, but after a hard day at the range, you will spend 2-3 hours scrubbing and pushing to get all the carbon and lead out. I see alot of negative reviews, mainly from CETME owners, so you have to ask yourself...is it the firearm or is it the owner. Trust me those rifles probably havent seen a good cleaning since they left the factory. Buy this ammo you wont be disappointed, and remember if your weapon fails to function, its due to lack of maintenance not ammo...."

"I put away 1000 rounds of the Indian 308 a while back, but I'll shoot it only as a last resort. A good rule of thumb concerning ammo reliability is \"If you wouldn't drink the water in the country of manufacture, then don't trust the ammo!\""

"I bought fifty rounds on a whim for my G3. The ammo was corroded and the stripper clips were rusty. I don't even want to know what would happen if I attempted to shoot it. It is going in the trash after I pull the bullets for the brass."

"Reading some of the reviews I think some people are worried about accuracy and bullet weight. Remeber this is surplus COMBAT ammo. It is not going to be consistant and is not designed to be. In the field and engaging enemy the idea is for he bullets to have a larger shot group to aid in suppression fire. I have used this in my HK with acceptable results for what it is designed for. Shot groups at 100m of about 5-6 inches. If I use match ammo same range same rifle is about 1-2 inches. If you are looking for winning a shooting match this is not the right stuff, if you are shooting for sport or fun it is good."

"I bought a couple hundred rounds of this with some trepidation after reading some of the reviews below. I'm glad that I did, however and so is my rifle. My PTR-91F mows through it all day without a hiccup! So far I've only found one round that had a spot of corrosion on the casing that caused me to deem it grade 3. Very happy with my purchase and will be getting more for sure."

"One last note, Then I go shoot ... LOL ... Military Grade Ammo ( I agree with some other posts below when I say this ) Is designed to stop a human objective. 6ft 185+lbs when the shooter is going for a heart shot & may hit at 4\" low or high at 300 yrds more or less ... objective is completed period . The appearance of a round, means nothing if you know that it's designed durability. The Military uses a clear coat spray over thier ammo as a weather proofing, that inadvertantly tarnishes the brass & copper. Some ammo after storage for a period of many, many years, will still shoot it's bullistics by it's design, with no adverse problems. I'm talking years out in the elements. Fancy gunners may wish to wire brush the water calcium & nitrates from the surface because the stringers are cheap alloys & transfered some of the the corrosion to the casing. However the round is still coated, & it will not be affected nor harm your gun . A good cleaning after 100 rounds still took me just a few minutes with plain old Rem oil & 5 or so patches & a .50 cent toothbrush. Your arms can handle some earth in it. Trust me, It's designed to handle alot more than some calcium deposits. My rig is over $3 grand & it loves the earth. Actually, It shoots more accurate, when dirty !!! ( LOL ... for my 2 cents, right ? ) Good Luck ..."

"I just order another 250. Until I get my my reloading gear, It's great shooting for the price. Note: Poor grouping of shots is typically ; Bad siting, Wrong Grain for your barrel rifling & human fluctuation while aiming. The error while targeting, is hardly ever that drastically affected by atmosphere ( unless extreme conditions persist ) This ammo is designed for 1/12 twist barrel rifling period."

"I Ordered 250 rounds & Found It Very Accurate.My Remington 700 XCR Tactical, has a 1-12 twist & likes lighter grain. 147 grain performs the best This Ammo is real close to that . I had no problem siting in my Leupold MK-IV. in about 9 rounds or so, I was tight grouping at various distances. Folks having problems with any rifle ammo, shooting for distance, need to determine the correct ammo grain that suites your rifling twist rate & not just shop for price. Match Grade Ammo at the wrong grain will be off the paper completely w/ My Gun. I recommend this ammo !"

"Recieved 1000 rounds of this ammo in fair shape. Not clean enough for my bolt rifle but o.k. for my L1A1 rifle. I feed anything through this if its in good shape. Spat nearly all the lead out the buisness end no problem.Not too accurate, but what do you expect from a military round, they shoot loads off at the target. Great value for what you get."

"I bought 500 rounds of this ammo. My inspection of it found corrosion on the primer end and it was caused by the corroding stripper clips. However, this residue brushes right off. There was no evidence of pitting. I did not find any dents or creases in the casings. Nor did I find any dirt on any of the rounds. As I do not have my M1A yet (it is on order) I cannot say anything about how this ammo performs. For now I give it a 5 rating based solely on condition. After I fire off a few rounds and check the accuracy and how it feeds and how it cycles, I will enter another review be i8t good or bad or somewhere inbetween. Kewep the faith."

"All bad reviews musthave been made by people who do not understand what makes a decent round. I ordered 5 bandoliers originally, all rounds were inn pretty good condition. One 5 round stripper clip had bullets which had shown some copper tarnishing ( blue/green residue) but this was easily removed. Every one of the 250 rounds fired out of my M1A shot perfectly and left the reciever and gas piston fairly clean. The only accuracy issue I had was these rounds land about an inch and a half lower at 150 yards than match ammo out of my M1A, but this was easily adjusted for. Due to the increased pressures the cases edjected at a different angle than I am used to, but that is not really an issue at all. For the money, this is a great buy. While I would not reccomend this for any type of competative shooting, it is great for quick fire practice and plinking. I plan to purchase quite a bit more of this ammo before it runs out, as most other surplus sources already have."

"I purchased several bandolieers of this ammo and when I got it in the first thing I did was to send them all thru a 24 hour tumbler polish and then put them in a new .308 repack kit and you can never tell how that it was the same ammo. It cleans up very well and I have had no problems with it feeding. So a little work they really turn out nice looking."

"Ammo is good to go for the price. Strippers are pretty corroded, but doesnt get the ammo, except for a few which are easily wire brushed. Ammo is really dusty, so I hesitated to jam it in the reciever without wiping down all 100 rounds i purchased. but for $40 for 100 rounds id wipe them down ten times. I had no problems firing them out of my SOCOM 2, no misfeeds, jams, nor bad primers. I will be buying more."
