Nope, it should be good to go.

I bought 1000 rounds of .308 from BulkAmmo.com and after sleeping on it I found myself wishing I would of paid more attention to the description. It reads like this .... "7.62x51mm Nato Long Rang XM118 Ammo by Lake City Loose Packed - 175gr HPBT" .... It's the Long Rang XM118 that I'm not sure about. Will that hurt my gun?
Thank you JD
Yeah, the light is in my toolbox, it's out :)
The Burris had the most magnification at 3X that I could find, with my eyes I need all the help I can get .... what would you put on?
Heck, no... that's pretty good stuff. Let us know how it works out for you!

The answer to your question has been answered. Your ammo of choice is perfect for such a rifle. Unless you wanna go with some high end stuff that cost a dollar a round.
My experience with XM118 ammunition has almost alway's been very good, accuracy wise. It's what I feed the rifle in my avatar photo. Most of the time.

Nothing is going to hurt that rifle. I've fired all kinds of ammo through mine. There are certain loads it likes better than others for accuracy, but they all function and nothing will damage the rifle. Enjoy it.
As long as you're running a quality optic, you can run any magnifier. The only difference there will be quality of the glass. I'll eventually pick up an S&B 1-4, but for the past two years (give or take) I've had mine set up with an Aimpoint T1 and Ampoint 3x or an ACOG TA31.

That ammo is no good!!! You need to send it to me for proper disposal. I'll take care of it for ya. : )
A little SCAR H/red dot/magnifier love... I should have held out for FDE like my L, but I'll eventually paint it.
Just bought the 17s rifle and not sure if I want to shoot it. Any insight on gun value if not shot compared to shot if the gun like the scar is banned?
NIB never fired will be worth more than a used gun,but if they get banned then the price will definitely rise, it depends on how long you want to wait and how bad somebody wants it
