View Full Version : CAVIM: Dirty?

I've heard that the boxer primed Cavim 308 really dirtys up your firearm. Is this correct?

I have almost finished my first 1000 rnds
of CAVIM 83 and I don't feel that it is all that dirty. It shoots very well in my IMBEL/STG. No failures to feed or fire. It's not match ammo by any means but it's good enough for range play. I had some Radway Green RG84 that seemed dirty and low powered.
My FAL feeds CAVIM on #5 gas setting and RG84

Cavim does dirty up your gun, but the problem is much overstated. It leaves a black residue, but not much unburned powder. I have fired dirtier 7.62 in my FAL with no bad consequences. Best part is that CAVIM is boxer primed.

The "80's" Cavim I used left a little powder and carbon. I really liked the ammo though, it was very consistant and I was completely happy with it! It is on my favorite surplus ammo list.

From where does it come? Who is selling it? And at what price? ?????????

CAVIM is from Venezuela. The 308 is somewhat dirty but works well in FALs. It will jam a G3 or H&K 91 in about ten rds.
The 30-06 CAVIM is wonderful. Low pressure, clean bright and shiny. As a bonus you get all of those Browning links with it.
There is some 308 here in Dallas.
