|This stuff won't win any beauty contests. It's a little dirty looking and some of the casings were slightly dented, but that's kinda what to expect with loose bulk packed ammo. The box I received was seemed to contain all LC 14 headstamps, so this year's manufacture. Counted it up (just because I like to store it in 420 round amounts) and was 3 over. Took the remaining 163 rounds, including the worst looking of the lot to the range to see how it performed.
Someone told me that this ammo is what has been rejected by the factory and/or military and is not deemed even suitable for training purposes. If that's the case, then the grade one stuff must be better than match grade. Ran it through my Colt (HBAR 20", 1/9 twist, Nikon P223 scope) and had zero issues with it whatsoever. No jams, no FT feed/fire, and was consistently coming up with less than 2" groups at 100 and 200 yards, and only 3 flyers out of 150 rounds sent down range. The remaining 13 rounds made some nice holes in an old Ford block.
Very happy with this ammunition. Grab it while you can.|
