I have been offered 900 rounds of 7.62x51 Nato ammo. I haven't seen it yet so I don't know what the headstamp is. The guy says it is marked as a product of Malayasia.

Anyone have any info based on the little information I have?

Thanks.

Good ammo, but make sure it is Malaysian not Indonesian. The Malay is MUCH better and will have MAL in the Headstamp. PINDAD is Indonesian and very pretty looking...but groups at 100yards like 00 Buckshot from a Cylinder Choke.

Same happened to me with the chinese 7.62x51, could not hit a cow at 50 yds, and due to its low price I bought a lot.It also leaves the muzzle so dirty that you have to spend ten patches to clean it properly

Malayasian 7.62 Nato

I was wondering what the Malay stuff is selling for. The owner doesn't know and neither do I.
Thanks for the info on the headstamp.

Thanks.

lot 29 MAL 8-83 ammo

I picked the ammo up tonight. There is three 300 round ammo cans. It is MAL hesdspaced and is excellent looking ammo. Looks brand new. It is dated 8-83. Plus 60 rounds of FNM, also 80's dated.

I think I got a pretty good deal. $175.00 for it all.

Great price, Joe! I still have several belts of the MAL 7.62x51 ammo downstairs. Bought it about 5 years ago and, IIRC, it proved to be excellent ammo.
