PTR 91 GI Ammo and general recommendation list

Okay, got a PTR 91 GI on order, in the mail and in route to my FFL. I am pretty is my 3rd HK clone for the herd. Got my order in to RTG for some extra goods. I do have some questions for PTR GI owners.

1. Can you recommend some bulk ammo that worked for you?

2. I am gonna check bolt gap and try and run 100-200 rds through it and see how it goes.....see where the gap goes. I want to eventually duracoat the gun hk black. I know I have 1 year warranty and I read a lot of threads on this and other forums. My rifle is in the 800+ serial number range.

At what point would you feel I am good to go with bolt gap settling in and trunnion checks before I am good to go for the actual duracoating?

3. Any other recommendations? I will get the RTG G3/91 survival kit at some point.

THX in advance.

Gents, I love these type threads.
The German G-3 and its clones are military type weapons. ie. mud, dirt, sand, water, limited maintenance etc.
It is reliable first and foremost.
One should not have to "baby it".
If one wants a sniper weapon, get a nice heavy barrel bolt gun with a thousand dollar scope and ballistics computer.
The PTR-91 should run all day on any milspec or commercial FMJ 7.62x51 NATO type ammo unless it and/or the ammo has been submerged in salt water for a year or two.
If the weapon doesnt- send it back and get it fixed.
