I had read online that Hirtenburger was good surplus ammo awhile back so when I spotted some 200 round cans at the last gun show I bought one. It is marked "austrian" and the dealer said it was Hirtenburger. I see some of you are saying this ammo is "hot". Am I going to do any damage to my M1A if I put a couple hundred rounds of this through it? I am hoping this is good ammo because it was well priced at about 50 cents a round.

It's going to be fine in your rifle, all of the NATO countries load to the same set of spec's for M80 ball ammunition.

You didn't say what year the Hirtenburger headstamp is?DI5
