Looking for some affordable 7.62 NATO ammunition to train with? Grab this 540 round M2A1 can of 7.62x51 mil spec ammo and enjoy plenty of trigger time with your AR-10, M-14, FAL, or other 7.62 or .308 Winchester rifle. These cartridges were manufactured in the 1980s by Syarikat Malaysia Explosive Ltd, a defense contractor now known as SME Ordnance. SME was established in 1969 and produces a variety of munitions and weapons for the Malaysian armed forces.
Each cartridge in this 540 round can fires a 146-grain bi-metal full metal jacket bullet. This results in external ballistics very similar to those of M80 ball ammo and good medium range performance. This ammo comes packaged in sturdy 50 Cal metal ammo cans that can be reused for a variety of storage purposes and come with a convenient carry handle and secure latch.
This ammo uses brass cases with intact annealing marks, as with all mil spec loads. The triple staked non-corrosive red-sealant Berdan primers provide very reliable ignition but require special equipment to remove from spent cases, so we don't recommend reusing the brass for reloading.
In our field testing, this ammo produced an average grouping of 2.2" at 100 yards from an 18" barrel (for reference, FGMM is usually around 1" in that gun and CBC M80 is 2.5-3ish). We also saw pretty consistent velocity (not more than a 50 FPS swing in a 10 round group) with an average FPS of 2,682. Pretty solid performing rounds!
Good ammo; great price
Review by Navy vet
I took this out to the range 3 weeks ago. Bought 2 cans last year or the year before. Ran it through my ptr-91and browning x-bolt. Worked great in both. A bit of a kick in the bolt action but very manageable. Running through the ptr, ran flawlessly. Fed, fired, extracted forward as designed for that rifle. (For those that don’t know, heckler & koch and clones eject cases forward rather than back. Nice to see the brass in flight as you pull the next round.) will be buying several more cans very soon. Great ammo

Review by Stephen
The ammo arrived at my door step within a few days after ordering. It was in this cool looking ammo box, which I could always use. At first it was a little tough opening the box but, that just means it was really secured. When I was able to open the box, the ammo was organized and clean. I shot this ammo through my Sig Saur .308 16" AR-10 without any trouble. It feed well and shot with precession. I'll be ordering more soon, thank you.

I have ordered 4-5 of these in about a year. It comes in the ammo can and boxed all nice in cardboard. Out of all the rounds I've fired I only had about 6 hangfires. I’d say the odds are with you and it’s definitely worth the price.

Exactly what I wanted.
Review by Shanglee
Recently bought an M1A and wanted the cheapest brass case ammo I could get. Also, wanted the ammo can for future storage. Wasn't sure what to think of surplus from Maylaysia but knew that they could make some quality electronics and most of the reviews were good. Anyway, it has a much lighter recoil then any other ammo I have purchased. However, I've shot 120 rounds so far without issue. It's dirtier than I expected hence the 4 stars on quality. In all other dimensions it's far better than I expected and I get a reusable steel ammo can which is nice. Plan on buying two more next week.

Great for plinking
Review by Reply to Frontier
The ammo it is what it is. From my experience, my AR-10 BCM build liked it. I had trouble with my BM-59, but that thing is picky, i have to feed it 155gr+.

Great for the price!
Review by Bryan
Shot all rounds from my M1A with a couple buddies one day at the range and not a single issue what-so-ever! I was expecting to get a few dud rounds when shooting and not a single one. Great product and great price, I’ll be re-ordering me some more for my next range day.

Review by PeeDog
I shot this out of an AR10. I fired 7 25rd. Magpul mags. Every other mag had a hung round from this ammo. I think this may be result of the new rifle I was firing not being broken in or the quality of the powder. Maybe a hire grain count powder with the AR10 is better for this rifle.

buyer beware: you get what you pay for / old mil surp sometimes is not worth it ?
Review by from the last frontier
have you ever looked at a great package and wondered: "is it too good to be true". Well this stuff is, IMHO.
the primers have gone hard with misfires greater than 50%. Imagine you have that trophy buck in your site and "click". the buck looks at you and sticks out it's nose, then runs off. tuff lesson ?

Review by Robert
I was shooting these rounds through a new rifle and every other round wouldn't fire. Problem was with firearm and not ammo. Cycling the action manually several times seemed to remedy the blot not properly locking closed. No problems after that. I plan on buying 3 more cans - can't beat the price!

40% ammo misfires
Review by Brian
I went through about half these rounds with my M1A and about 40% of the rounds misfired out of stock factory magazines.

Good for the price on range ammo
Review by Tyler
My first round that I chambered got stuck in my AR. I took the barrel off to remove it. I think I could have shot the gun to cycle but I was at home just testing the fitment. I went to the range, all was good. Only issue, which may just be my setup was the very last round from each mag seemed to eject about 50% of the time
