This is just hearsay, but I thought I remembered somebody complaining that the newer Lithuanian wasn't as good as the old...

FWIW, I have a bunch of the older stuff, and it's astoundingly accurate, even in my bolt gun.

The the new stuff dated 2015 is about as accurate as xm80. Stuff made before that is fantastic.

That's what members have been saying for quiet some time now...

GGG Production in Lithuania

Lithuanian 7.62x51

GGG Lithuania 7.62x51 Current Ammo

2004 Lithuania GGG. Corrosive?

Why doesn't Lith have a Nato Cross?


Thanks from tnw50cal and Rich D

I shot some 2016 production GGG and it was "OK", but, 2016 Prvi M80 ball (PPU) has a slight edge IMHO, here's a target where I shot both, along with some old late 1980's Cavim ball & 168 handloads :



SG Ammo has Prvi at $.52/round...

Thanks from Rich D
