    i can't shoot it out of anything fun though:(

    my 20" A2 rifle has a .223 match chamber, so can't shoot it in that. my 24" RRA has a .223/5.56 Wylde chamber, so that's what i'm limited to.

    well, it's built for precision shooting. this isn't the kinda ammo to do precision shooting w/. i'd rather just blast it away.

    If it's South African, you might have problems. SOME rifles will tolerate it, but the brass is soft. Many rifles rip rims on that stuff. The first time you shoot it, keep a rod with you to punch stuck cases out. If you don't need it the first time, it doesn't mean you won't later on. I just finished up a 300 rd. SA battlepack, and I had exactly ONE FTE due to a ripped case rim, but it happened in the last 90 rounds of the whole pack.

    for milsurp ammo, it's in surprisingly good condition. most milsurp ammo i've seen are banged up w/ dings, and real dirty. these have no imperfections, and are very shiny. here are some pics. i couldn't get a pic of the headstamp, but it says 96 on one side, and 14 on the other.

    i've heard bad things about the older ones. these are '96. maybe i'll get lucky, but if not, it's not a big deal.

    Yeah, that's definitely SA ammo. Who knows, your rifle may eat it nicely, or you may be rodding the bore every other round. Shoot it and see.
