Quick question.. Will an Armalite AR10 handle Winchester FMJ BT 175gr match ammo allright?

Thanks

Maybe we should clarify if your rifle is 1960's or 1990's as both might be considered early, depending on our perspective.
I'm of a mind that 175 grain match ammo wold be fine in either, but I confess to never owning an early AR10 although I lust after them at times.

If it is an early AR10, you really need to post photos here!

FWIW, the early AR10 will handle most modern ammo without problem.
