I am not affiliated with ventura munitions at all every one here has helped me with all the dumb questions I ask so I thought I would pay it forward :<>:

Thanks for the heads up. Unfortunately, the Seneca Arms for 55 cents/round is Berdan primed so it's not easily reloadable. Still, it's a damn good price. :?

I know how you feel. I've kinda got that feeling today...my vortex 2.5-10x32 and ADM delta came in and I can't wait to get home to crack those packages open and play!

To bad the brass is Berdan primed. You can reload it but it requires lots of work and depriming it is a royal biatch. You also need to utilize Berdan primers unless you drill the primer holes but that opens up all sorts of "bad things could happen" scenarios.

Where is this 7.62 X 51 ammo made? The Ventura Munitions website says that it's 2012 production, so I assume that it's non-corrosive. Being Berdan primed, this ammo would be good for a HK91/G3 rifle because these rifles destroy the brass during firing because of the fluted chamber.

I tried it on one case. That one case was enough to persuade me to never try it again. The really bad part is when you accidentally pick a Berdan case up at the range and then snap the pin on your de-priming/re-sizing die.
