Has any one heard of or used Argentina ammo. It came in a brown box 20 to the box. A friend owns a small gun and pawn shop he got twenty boxs in with a package deal from a fellow that was selling four hunting rifles. I got them off him for twenty bucks :D. Give range report soon going to shoot this weekend. They were fmj boxer primers.

Can't say offhand Fred that I have heard of its usage but thats not to say someone here might have more info on it.

Sounds like ya got yourself a good deal on it and let us know how it performs when ya get some range time.

Fred

I used Argentine ammo in my M1A when I got a few years ago. I was stationed in San Diego at the time and the Argentine surplus was the only thing they would let me shoot that wouldnt punch holes in their bullet traps 8O . Its good ammo if you can find it, my FR8 likes it but the FR8 doesnt like my shoulder lol.

For grins, I shot a 5 shot group through a M40A1 TBA Clone...........
Grouped at .248 @ 100yds.............. 8O

Been looking for more ever since.........has a 143 gr BTFMJ bullet, w/ a ROLLED cannelure.............

Powder, was some of the tiniest extruded I have ever seen........

After that, I learned, that other LEO/SWAT/Mil Types were getting the same phenominal groups.............
