I heard that Federal is selling M-80 .308 ball
Is it true?
My understanding is its designed for M-60 use which implies to me that accuracy isn't the first priority
How does it fare in M1A's?
Whats the cost
How would it compare to Port?
Should I buy more Portuguese

I bought some LC 03 ball from the CMP almost a year ago and have fired a lot of it out of my M1A. I got about 2 inch groups out of the ammo @100 yards. It is good quality ammo.

However, my rifle likes aussie a bit better and Aussie is cheaper. If you can find the Aussie in bandoleers and ammo cans, that would be the way I would go. If you want a bunch of good LC brass to reload, go with the LC.

It just depends on what you are looking for. I believe that the ammo was about $80/per 400 +shipping when I bought it from the CMP. The ammo hitting the market now seemed to be a bit higher in price. I would believe that Port would be cheaper but I have never shot any of it.
