The white-box cases are roughly cubical, which I found easier to deal with than the traditional rectangles of 20 in most boxes ammunition. The box material is cheap, but it holds together well for bulk packaging, state their contents clearly on each box, and the ammunition itself was "clean" compared to many loose/bulk purchases I've made in the past, both in actual cleanliness (dirt, grease, residues) and also in terms of looking like reloadable brass (few marks, no bends, etc). A slight discoloration and patina doesn't bother me, and overall, good brass, primer, and bullet for being 1/3 the cost of other closely-examined ammunition.
I'd purchased a single "battle pack" (among several other 308 options in 20-round boxes) to sight and shoot a new rifle and optics for same. With a bipod and a table to lean over, the whole of the system went where it was aimed at a paced 300m. By the 5th or 6th shot, with some turret clicks between, the pack of 200 went from a minimum expectation of "sight-in trash" to good, clean, and accurate fun.
Groupings were not the expectation; single-hit targets were, but based on that, this ammunition did not wander more than 1 MOA at any reasonable distance on a high-end AR platform. High-end of not, a gun can only do so much, and bad ammo is bad ammo. This is not bad ammo, particularly for the price (and with the understanding that anything going "bang" is tipping near a buck a shot in 308 caliber these days).
The only consideration I can think to note is that 145-grain projectiles perform somewhat differently than heavier ones, but even with a fair crosswind, the typical sporting, hunting, and range distances ought to allow for predictable adjustments.
Final thought: I won't name names, but I also shot a half dozen brands, though in lower overall quantities, and with some twice as expensive and others being roughly similar in price but loose or otherwise "bulk" quality, none that I fired felt "worth" the difference in cost.
Definite repeat buyer here. Though I might wait for some of the overall hysteria to drop before I grab a significant new load of these Prvi Partizan "battle" units for plinking and practice. Good stuff; have fun! (Posted on 7/10/13)
