5.0 Rating Right stuff - 5/7/2011
Reviewer: Steve E.
Looks just like the ammo we were given when I was in the Marines. Haven't tried it on any cars or old appliances yet, but I have no doubt it will perform.

5.0 Rating Warm Fuzzies - 5/10/2011
Reviewer: 41st EIB
This ammo is what's issued to the military. It fills the gap between the impotence of the 5.56 ball ammo and the hard hitting 7.62 ammo when used on hardened targets. I've shot this at 1/2" steel plate and it didn't have any issues hitting the target behind the plate. I'm very happy with the performance of this ammo and I'm glad to be able to purchase it outside of the service.

4.0 Rating MILSPEC Ammo - 5/12/2011
Reviewer: Red Leg Marine
This ammo is the same as the rounds I was issued in Iraq and during live fire exercises throughout my career in the Marines. The brass is fairly bright and the rounds are stamped Lake City 2011. From my experience with LC M855 1-2" MOA can be expected from 16-20" barrels consistently.

3.0 Rating Ehh - 5/13/2011
Reviewer: Tony
Bought a few boxes of M855 a few years back and was very impressed with the quality, this batch not so much. I do realize that this is still quality ammunition but CTD needs to clarify that these boxes are marked 'NOT FOR DUTY USE' which, to me, means that they didn't make the grade for duty ammunition due to quality issues. It's just fine for what it is but based on the description I expected better, the brass is a little dented and just looks a little rough all the way around. I would buy again but the description needs more detail.

4.0 Rating Got what I was expecting - 5/14/2011
Reviewer: Jarhedz
After reading other reviews, I got just what I expected. The brass was slightly scarred/scratched, but nothing that would prevent me from shooting it. There were very few rounds that had any dings and those were VERY small (probably came from when the neck was crimped around the projectile as they seemed to be in the same spot.) The primers were all seated level and were in good condition. Will add a review when I shoot them (provided the zombie hordes cooperate and try to overrun my "POS".)
