DSA offering 7.62x51. Anyone know about this ammo?

Don't recall ever buying Polish surplus.
The intergoogle doesn't shed much light on the subject.

I have not shot that exact round but a half dozen other types of Polish mfg rounds. All good quality.

Good price if shipping not a real big add on. About like the MEN 2016 mfg 7.62x51 selling lately.

Here's a test of velocity and consistency. A little on the slow side, but looks good. I'll buy it for the 46cents/round they're selling it for right now.

^ I did that before I got my group gun setup. If I remember next time i go out, I'll see what it will do group wise at 100. Although it has a 1:10 twist barrel, so most 145-150gr stuff is 2" at 100 yards

1in10" twist isn't detrimental to accuracy for 150gr 30cal bullets.

In my experience with this gun (16" CZ557-UCS) all tested groups so far haven't tightened up until 168gr and heavier loads were shot through it.

That's why matches are won with heavier than 145-150gr bullets. It ain't the twist...it's the BULLETS! ;-)

150 fmjs aren't usually made to the same standard of quality as the 168's. I've had good luck with 155 grain Sierra matchkings
