Hi folks,

Are many people buying 5.56 ex-military ammo for plinking?? And can you buy the Milsurp in .223 Rem pressure too??

Or the 7.62mm NATO, and does it come in Milsurp .308 Win? 

Any info of where I can buy a few hundred rounds, Please?

Many thanks.

Chaz.

I have used both of these for plinking in the past from here. I know he can send anything you want to your local RFD, not sure on the costs though. It is all new manufacture not ex-military.

GOOD MORNING CHAZ, if you rifle is made in europe it will be pressure tested to cip standards so even if stamped 223rem it will be safe to use nato/5.56 ammunition . if its a american made 223 then it is for 223rem pressure rounds unless stamped 5.56. my cz 527 has fired thousands of nato /russian ammunition and has never had a problem. good luck with your search.

308win is potentially the higher pressure of the two cartridges. 7.62NATO should be fine in any 308WIN rifle.
