Anyone ever shot 144 gr 7.62x51?

I found a good price on some, and I was wondering if anyone had tried it out. Any thoughts?

A nation of origin and/or brand would help.

It's good. I also just bought 2K to feed to my FAL. It arrived today. It was recommended to me by others on the FAL Files. It is Berdan primed, but not corrosive.

Made in Belgium? Should be good. I have some 147gr FMJ's (Hertzberger?) from Austria that are very good but I only have a few left...

I've never shot it; just bought it. And by the way. I just picked up my first FAL also. I haven't shot a round through it.

That stuff looks promising. I would try some, but I just stocked up on German milsurp a while back. My x51 budget is drained for the moment.
