Good Ammo & Price
Review by Baldilocks
I have fired 60 rounds through my M1A with no problems and good accuracy. It compares favorably with UK Radway Green I was shooting. A few cases had some tarnish on them, but nothing to stop functioning.

Poor performance do not buy bulk.
Review by Ed
I purchased 800 rds this June 2018 based my experience with H'berger 8mm Mauser. Misfires 2 out for 10. The few that fired were accurate. I tried 5 boxes in the 100 degree Houston afternoon. My M1A would not fire Monarch either. Domestic ammo is magic.

I don’t know what everyone’s crying about saying this ammo not being good.
I’ve shot over 1800rds of it through between my FAL & SCAR w/zero problems.

Did not run well in my grey ghost heavy
Review by pnw_gabe
I bought a 20 round box of this ammo to test in my rifle, it did not go well. I had multiple jams using this ammunition, I was able to run it all but it isn't worth the headache. It seems to work well for some and not for others so just buy 20-100 to test before you buy in bulk.

use as directed
Review by JEB
It was designed for use in the STG 58 or the FN FAL and works flawlessly in those rifles..an FAL and an AR are not the same...Buy American ammo for your AR...its not rocket science...

buy a pair of verniers if you are a serious shooter
Review by rampartmantooth
bought over 700 rounds of this stuff and regretted it. headspace measures about 1.700". 7.62x51 should measure around 1.645" and .308 should measure around 1.632. the longer round would explain why me and others have trouble with chambering in a semi-auto weapon. these might be better in bolt action rifles - but i wouldnt know, i dont own one.

Not the best; not the worst.
Review by Historian
There were no mis-fires during my shooting day. However, about every third round stuck in the receiver when drawing back the bolt. This is not a huge deal during target practice, but it's inconvenient in hunting, and would be unacceptable under firefight conditions.
I'll go with another brand on my next purchase.

Great bang for the buck
Review by Bill T
Have run about 300 rounds through a Springfield M1A and a CMMG Mk3 w/o issue. MOA accurate. No failure to fire, FTE or any other cycle malfunction. Will buy more when circumstance permits

Sub moa surplus???
Review by MRMIKESGUNRACK
I picked up 500 rounds of this stuff just so i had some m80 equivalent on hand. I really didn't expect much but more 308 isn't really a bad thing. What I didn't expect was when i was sighting in my Remington 700 sps with a 16" barrel I decided to use this stuff to get me on paper at 100 yards. My first group messured less than an inch. In total i fired 6 groups with this ammunition out of the 700 and was presently surprised with how consistent it was, with all the groups measuring right around moa. With the smallest at 3/4 moa, and the biggest about 1.5moa. Another thing to note was the brass was boxer primed, and had a heavy crimp on the primers. I don't know if that is true for all of it but at least my batch was. Over all it functions out of all the semi autos i ran it through including the m14. Although it seems a little on the hotter end of 7.62, so if you're concerned with bending oprods I'd stick with domestic m80 ball. Its not federal gold medal match, but its Great ammo for what it is.

This ammo was simply poor, maybe I had a bad run but way too many misfeeds and misfires. Using the same mags on the same day with different ammo I had no issues. Won't purchase again

Review by StickyGranada
Whether it's user error,faulty rifles from others I've shot a bunch of this stuff thru my AUSTRIAN STG-58/FAL and have never had any kind of issues at all of course it's just like my AK no matter what you feed them they function correctly every time. I've even pulled bullets from these and put 145grain tracers back in them and never a issue. I recommend this 308 ammo.

FTF, Jammed breech I gave the ammo away
Review by WesW
I have a Ruger SR 762 and these rounds are a nightmare. I wasted lots of time at the range getting jammed cartridges free as well as what I paid for this worthless crap. The Winchester rounds from Lucky worked every time.

Pure junk. Huge waste of money
Review by Stephen
Just received my order of 240 of this .308 junk. I load my 20 round magazines with 15 rounds of ammo.
Had 6 misfires (FTF) on the first magazine. First round of the second magazine failed to fire. Round will not eject manually. Another shooter at the range had a cleaning rod with him and we tried everything to get the round out of the barrel. Going to try again with a solid rod and hammer. Very unhappy with this crap. I have made several purchases from Lucky Gunner with one complaint. This incident should make everyone aware that this ammo is crap.

Review by Joel
The price for quantity is good. But I've had about a 4% failure rate. Which is either the lubricant I use or the primers. I'll strike the primer with no discharge. Or maybe I've just got a bad batch.

Review by Chadwick
Superb Austrian ammunition! Fires close to 1 1/2 MOA in my GI PTR. Have fired 300 + of these to break in with zero misfires, FTF, FTE. Cases sent flying about 35 feet. Pristine appearing, super quality. Some other complaints I have heard.....hard to understand.

Best 7.62 Nato for the money
Review by NIZ
This is high quality ammo. It is nicely packed in an airtight bag which holds 240 rounds. You get for packages per case. Ammo will store well for a long time. It shoots well in my FAL and other .308 chambered rifles. Great accuracy with very constant performance round after round. No feed or extraction problems in semi-auto rifles.

Just received this ammo, 3 days, very fast delivery. Was worried about other reviews as ammo is from 1976. No worries, this stuff is extremely clean, all went bang at the range. Stock up while you can, Hillary may get in and you can kiss this deal goodbye.

Too many defective primers...
Review by CueAy
I had purchased 1,000 rounds based on a) a good price / round b) decent reviews. Must have gotten a bad run, as my failure to fire rate in 3 boxes was approaching 20% (!!). Very frustrating -- and this in a Steyr rifle that has never had an issue with other ammo.

Ok, I guess
Review by nicholas
Of 2 minds about this ammo. The pros;relatively cheap, relatively accurate, relatively reliable. Key word, relatively. Cons: It shoots about 3in at 100yds, and has a 3-5% failure rate. Sometimes it will go on the 2nd strike, sometimes not. But, considering that it's about 40yrs old...

Good Value, Shot good, scored good.
Review by Pat C
I fired my rounds through an Aero Precision M5. It was clean and only had a few spots only on the cases. It feed well in a magazine and chambered without problem. All rounds fired and after doing a breaking in of the barrel It was shooting all shots in the black at 100yrds. I had installed the MagPul flip up sites and they worked well. A scope is coming today for long distance shooting. The only item not liked was the Berdan primers as I was not aware. I would liked to have been able to reload the used brass. My error not Lucky Gunner.

If new ammo performed as well......
Review by Aviation Ordnance AO1
I purchased the smaller Hirtenburger ammo amount from LG....they must have sold it out... so I'll comment on the 960 rd. site.
I purchased a "hunting beginners" Savage Axis .308 bolt action rifle, equipped out of the box with a scope (scope has been changed...thank God!) as a backup "TSHHTF" . I purchased this Hirtenburger ammunition. I am amazed. I expected fun and .308 "plinking"....but not "accurate" fun.
This ammo...out of relatively inexpensive "beginner hunting rifle" made me smile. The day was calm & sunny. No wind from any direction. Elevation (ASL) is 870 feet. Temperature is 74 degrees F. Humidity is about 60 % (sorta humid). All shots were from a bench rest...no prone or standing.
I shot this to 700 yds. and after "doping the scope"...received 1" groups. I thought...."well...God is benevolent and allowing me much more than I deserve". Nope. It did it again. I shot a total of 200 rounds...there were no misfires of any sort .
Anyway folks...this 37 year old ammo was fantastic. I'm hoarding what I have left...will purchase more to "store away"...and am really happy and impressed with the entire situation.
As usual...ordering was easy and delivery was fast.
I love it when there are exceedingly professional and more than competent retailers available to supply the needs of society...whatever those needs may be.
It happens to be Lucky Gunner for those of us who enjoy the shooting sports. Thank you again, Lucky Gunner.

How can you beat this deal? 50cents a round shooting brass and not steel cases. Solid accuracy, clean burn, and hard hitting... This ammo was worth ever penny!!! Of course, GL makes it easy to obtain. My Ruger SR762 ate it up and spit it out flawlessly.

Great ammo, great price
Review by Cowcatcher
Put about 200 rounds down range at 100, 200, and 300 with very good results through a DPMS oracle. No misfires, reasonably clean shooting, and cycled with no problems. If there is a drawback, it is the berdan primers.

Review by chase45
If it weren't for the headstamp on the back saying it was made in 1976 I would believe this to be new ammo. I ran a whole battle pack through my FAL this weekend. Worked great. Accuracy was better than expected. Fist sized groups at 100 yards were no problems. No problems at all. Lucky gunner was on the ball too. I ordered Friday mid day and had it on Saturday before my range trip

Fired hundreds of rounds without a single misfire using my Sig 710 Patrol. Shots downrange at 50, 100 and 200 yards hit the target square on. Absolutely no issues encountered. I would consider this ammo to be fairly priced and performed exceedingly well.

A 308 by any other name...
Review by Andy
Technically, these are 7.62x51 rounds. And while that generally does not make a huge amount of difference, it apparently was far more than the tolerance of my FN SPR. Accuracy was fair.
Extraction, was brutal. Something with the rim thickness, as I've seen other reviews mention online. Each time I went to extract the round, it was (subjectively) about 4-5 times the amount of force that I normally need to use. Honestly felt like I was going to rip the casing apart. Not pleasant at all.
That said, if I had a battle rifle, such as an L1A1, I have the feeling that these rounds would have functioned far better. So, I will leave the review as positive. But if you have a higher level bolt rifle like mine....you may run into trouble.

best bang for your buck
Review by Scott in Oregon
This is hands down the best surplus .308 ammo anywhere. Always consistent, hard hitting and more accurate than anything else out there. Hirtenberger is always hard to find so when you can find it buy it cheap and stack it deep. No need to go with cheaper ammo, it wont outperform the Hirtenberger.

Review by Chucksteer
This is obviously not match grade, but I could put 60rnds down range with a 6in group (mostly) standing using iron sights at 75 yards. While that is probably a comment against my skills than the ammo :-), EVERYTHING worked fine. This shoots as good as the lake city mil-spec. While the boxes have a hard musty smell, the ammo is shrink-wrapped without signs of environmental effects. 4 stars on performance is more a comment that it is essentially mil-spec performance. I would give this 2 more stars on value if I could.
