If J&G sells this stuff to you, Indian 7.62x51, and your rifle blows up because of it, who is libel? Are they? Or do we, as shooters, take the risk into our own hands when we purchase it?

ltcboy,

J & G Sale has this warning with this surplus Royal Ordnance (Indian) ammo.....

Quote:
(NOTE, Some of this ammo..... was imported with some bullet seating problems, this ammo has been sorted to find any defects. We have tested it in FAL, G3, and bolt actions.)
If anything happens, J & G Sale not liable.

Boom, Done, Next.

I bought a can of this stuff at a gun show cheap last year. After reading all the war stories about it, I pushed it away with a long stick and forgot about it. Talked to a friend this year; he`s been shooting the stuff without problems, so, next trip to the country, I took some along. Had nothing but problems with it in a brand spanking new AR10B. Had one of `em hang up half way in the chamber and had to take a cleaning rod and bop it out, which I really didn`t like doing. Just on a fluke, I brought some on the next shooting session along with a PolyTech M14. She ate `em like they were M&Ms! Guess I`ll save `em for the 14`s and feed the AR Portuguese.

Well, I happened to save it to my hard drive way back when (what a pack-rat, huh?) so if the mods approve I'll try to reconstruct it into a post here.

OK mods?

Edited to add:
I went over to the Cetme Rifles Forum and did a bit of digging. It seems that they switched to a new format and the links to that thread are down for some reason. It looks like the error occurred last November. Not sure when/if they'll get it back up and running.

Bought 800 rounds at the Wilmington, MA gun show this afternoon. It was billed as South African and in MG34 belt cans. Nifty set up. Did not know it was Indian. Anyway, took it and one of the home made FAL's to the 100 yard range and shot some coffee cups. Ammo shot real well but we did not do any real accuracy tests. Just shot the hell out of the cups off hand and then took off (freezing cold for an old goat like me).

Looked to be dirty stuff. The FAL needed a cleaning but then again, we always do that anyways after shooting it.

Can't say the stuff was junk but then we did not have an accident and in view of the other posts, we won't buy it again.

At least we got 4 nice ammo cans out of the deal.

I have seen it fired in a century arms L1A1 (about 3 years ago) It sounded different every shot and some of the rounds looked like they had alot of recoil and others didn't. I am not a fan of any ammo with squibs.
Also I have heard reports of it being extremely dirty. But I can't confirm this.

If it is South African , from sealed pouches , fire away! If it is Indian , headstamped OFV , be wary.

Linky no worky!

The link in the initial post is NFG.

Did anybody happen to save the info? And if so, could you possibly post the content of the post?

Thanks,

louie

Bought 250 rnds. at a gunshow back in the summer. Ran about half of it through the PolyTech okay. Not nearly as accurate as the South African or the Czechoslovakian. Some primers were not only pretty flat but cratered up a little around the firing pin. The SA and CZ doesn't do that in the PolyTech. Haven't tried it in the SA M1A or the FAL.

I wonder how many of those little problems happened on full auto with no ammo inspection?. The M1A looks like he had a round stuck in the barrel and fired a second round and BANG!
