    I picked up 700 rounds of this. Any info on it. Plinking ammo? Reloadable? Collector value? I know the plant closed in 1977. Not much info out there it seems.

    The M80 or M59 Ball cartridges are intended for use against personnel and unarmored targets. Any US Made 7.62 ammo is Good ammo To Have and keep since it is hard to come by and is running .50-.75 cents per round.

    Thanks, I got this ammo for 125.00. It is still in unopened boxes of 20 rounds. Boxes are in like new condition. I opened one box, looks brand new. I am happy with it. Only trouble is the only 308 I have is a Rem. LTR. But might be a good reason to get me an FAL.
