    Norinco and other from a well known manufacturer is in process but this is not our import so I cannot commit on Eta. I will however try and get some guesstimate info.

    That I do have :) but I tried nonetheless :)

    My rifle only groups from 168gr plus.

    Exactly - so it is not really the fault of the ammo per se but rather a result of the ammo not being ideal for the twist.

    I am not sying it is the most accurate ammo out there but we had reports (like a post on this thread) that says it is more accurate than SA milsurpl 7,62x51.

    say a half MOA rifle with 1:10 twist.... what would you get ballparkwise with this stuff, would you guestimate?
    1MOA, 2MOA....

    I got 3-4 MOA in mine. Then again someone I spoke to a short while ago gets 0.5 MOA in his accuracy international .308. Not sure of twist rate..

    But still every rifle differs. 147gr is too light for 1:10 twist regardless of good or bad rifle. I shoot 0.5 MOA with 168 and 185 grain. 150 or less and nada..

    0.5 -> 4 MOA
    wow ouch. but i understand, that weight is not ideal for that twist-rate. still, for general SADPA club shoots and plinking use, it's probably good enough? :)

    1.5 MOA out of a Musgrave .308 target rifle, 26" barrel.

    Its not target stuff but will do for plinking, fouling shot etc

    It's more than enough for DMG shoots and such.

    More than enough for sport shooting and plinking. Even for plates out to 300m.. Get hold of some, test them in your rifle and see.

    Luckily for me, where I got mine in stellenbosch, we can buy them loose as much as we want.

    I'm no marksman, but I get about a 2inch (@100meters) grouping with my Ruger Scout rifle and I can shoot 50 rounds a day without breaking the bank.
