    if your gun shoots ppu then get it, great bullets for the price. Geco is good gear though

    At that price GECO is a bit cheaper than standard U.S. stuff (average cooking ammo like Rem 'Corelokt' or Federal 'Classic' or 'HiShok') but is still twice the price of PPU.

    If you do decide to try it and plan to reload the empties, I would just check the cases out before you buy. All the GECO brass I've seen in .223 has stake-crimped primer pockets. RUAG may follow the same practice for 7.62 (and .308).

    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    I've used GECO 170gr roundnose in my .308 on the hill. Though the velocities from my 22" barrel were not blistering (c 2500fps), the bullets didn't bounce off any hinds, and the trajectory was perfectly useable zeroed 2" high at 100yds.

    The cases are on their 4th reloading of a mild 7.62mm 147gr load that I used in a Parker-Hale T4 for target-shooting. The primers weren't crimped.

    It works very well in my Tikka T3 (.308) zeroed an inch high at 100m. - Sadly (very !) PPU doesn't.

    If the Geco 308 is as good as the Geco .243 in 105 gr then you will not go wrong.

    It will be a wrench to part with Norma ammo but it's 40 plus a box !mind you got x2 cwds and a munty tonight from new perm so guess its more than payed for its self in one evening .

    I use geco in my 243 and find it very accurate would recommend to anyone to give them a try a box of fifty rounds in my local dealer is 54 good value I recon

    +1 for Geco ammo - .243 groups well in my Tikka and expands readily in fallow, leaving a 2/3" exit. Also the brass is good RWS stuff.
