    No problem. However, make sure that it is primed with non-corrosive primers. Lots of foreign military or bulk ammunition is primed with corrosive priming. If it is corrosive-primed you can still use it, just be sure to clean the barrel thoroughly with a proper neutralizing bore cleaner as soon as possible after shooting it.
