Any info on German surplus .308 ammo?

I recently saw a battlepack of German surplus .308 for sale.

The round had a silver bullet and had the following on the headstamp:

DAG93A0300

From the information provided, could someone advise if the ammo is good or not, and if they would recommend buying it?

Thanks.

It's real good, by doing a search here you should find a few dozen postings in the past year about it.

Do a search under;

MEN,

German
Germany
silver bullet

You can look at all the internet site that sell it as well here.....

Some of the German military surplus ammunition I have tested...

Range reports on it......

Is the cupronickel (silver) bullet harder on the bore than a standard Cu jacket?

Thanks for the info.

I have one further question, when I looked at that battlepack it did not say what grain the bullet was.

Is this ammo a 150 grain bullet?
