Have read nothing but good stuff about "DAG" ammo, it's NATO so Govt contract and decent quality.  Besides Sportsmans there are others selling this stuff, and cheaper.  The sealed "battle packs" from Dans Sporting goods or even MidwayUSA are something to look into.  ClassicArms.US is good to deal with and is selling Radway (British) 308 in cans, copper jacket vs the nickel-copper jacket over mild/soft steel like the DAG (German) ammo.  The NI-Cu jacket is supposed to be as soft and wear as easily as copper...that's what I've read.  Have read where guys have put 1000 rnds through a barrel of DAG and think it's just fine...I have not purchased any DAG surplus.  Hope this helps, happy shooting!

I bought some German surplus ammo back on 08. The only problem with the ammo is that the paper packaging led to discoloration of the brass. I ended up use a piece of scotch bright to get some of the green discoloration off. Other than that the ammo shoots clean and I have no failures.

If you can get DAG Surplus at a fair price - BUY IT!
Fairly clean and reliable ammo. Shot it from my G3 Clone because it was comparatively cheap and accurate. Hast 147grs FMJ bullets.
If a i can get some i use it in .308 Garand.
Problem: German Government destroys surplus ammo instead of selling it (and we taxpayers have to pay for that). So it gets harder and harder to find that stuff.
That was one reason to sell my G3 and get an AR. For the AR i can reload.

Probably not the same but I picked up 1,500 rounds of the Dynamite Nobel German surplus (with the cupro nickel jackets) at Ammoman.

It works well in the LAR-8!
