Re: Recommended Ammo for M73 Rifle

(1) To "say you have done it" - any commercial ammo which does not call itself "high velocity" or "for modern rifles only". Ammo sold for "Cowboy Action Shooting" is particularly good.

(2) To obtain top accuracy - there is NO substitute for loading your own. All rifles have quirks, and TD bores are notoriously oversize; the bullet must fit the bore to attain small groups. Commercial ammo (especially jacketed) is usually loaded with .458 bullets, which is very safe, but too small for best accuracy in most rifles.
