"I shot several hundred rounds of this ammunition through my AR-15 with out a problem. There has been no misfires or jams with it. All of the rounds I have bought so far from them have been LC 08 brass. I have not chronographed it to see if it is shooting the 3139 FPS they claim. But it \"feels\" like its in that area. If it turns out to be anything different than stated I will add it to this review."

"This is some nice firing ammo. My SIG 556 ate this stuff up. The brass is nice(Lake City NATO 06)and in good condition(only 2 or 3 had small cosmetic dents on the caseings, fired fine). I kept the brass for reloading. The price is great and the brass is nice. BVAC makes good ammo for the .223/5.56."

"Simply put, for the 55 grain fmj, this is the best deal outside of Wolf or Brown Bear, which I will not run in my own M-4. Do the math, even on their bulk ammo deals, this is a winner, 10 boxes for about the same as the 500 bulk, which is forever out of stock. A no brainer here. Good brass, shoots straight, reloadable, what's not to love."

"I bought 2 of these boxes. I shot through 1 box last weekend and they are GREAT! Absolutely zero complaints! No problems at all! I plan to buy more!"

"Ok, after about 2000 rounds now, I can officially say I have absolutely zero complaint's with these rounds. I have had 0, count it, 0 FTF's or FTE's. After seasoning my barrel, I have been able to achieve more than respectable accuracy, consistently, with these specific rounds. 3 shot grouping's of under 4/10's (in some cases even less) of an inch and 5 and 6 shot grouping's under 1/2 an inch at 100 yards. For an M-4 with a 16' barrel, and a 1-in-9 twist, I'll take that. If you have doubts about these rounds, try a box, but leave some for me please."

"After 400 rounds, I have had no problems whatsoever with this ammo in my Bushy 14.5 inch 1/9 twist heavy barrel. It is very accurate and a hot load! It goes through 1/4 steel like butter. Much cleaner exit than with M855 Penetrator."

"I was very pleased when I opened up the box and found bright, clean, shiny brass! Compared to some of the crap I've seen from Federal, this was a pleasant surprise. Fired over 200 rounds through my SIG556 and a Vulcan Arms AR-15. Both guns cycled without a hiccup. When we zeroed, I was getting about 1/2 inch group at about 80 meters through my SIG, using an EoTech. Very respectable performance, more than adequate for my purposes (defense, hunting, SHTF, plinking, training, etc...)"

"This is really good stuff. Shoots at about the same velocity & point of impact as my handloads. There were a couple of dented cases, but no problem. Can't beat it for the price."

"CTD's shipping is quick!! Nuff said. Brass all looks great. I loaded a 30 rounder as soon as I recieved it and shot 7 or 8 through a Colt AR checking accuracy and was pretty happy w/ it. Then I unloaded the rest with haste and all fired well w/ no hangups. I recommend this ammo if you want affordable recreation."

"I've purchased this once fired brass in this caliber and several others. I've fired 1000s of rounds of it and never once have I had an issue with it. No jams, no malfunctions, and not very dirty either. It performs just as well as other, more expensive ammo. If you're looking for cheap plinking ammo, then you have found it. I recommend you buy in bulk."

"I run this in my Core 15 M4 (1:9 twist, 5.56\uFFFD45mm chamber), and have not had any jams. Accuracy is also very good. At this price, for brass ammo, you can't go wrong. Buy a lot before it is sold out or \"O\" bans it or taxes it."

"I bought 200 rounds of this ammo and ran it through my Bushmaster AR-15. Even with a Bushmaster magazine and a Magpul magazine, this ammo caused the gun to misfeed after every single round. I had to charge the action every shot I took. AWFUL AMMO; do not recommend."

"Ejection issues (including 2 stove pipes), fail to fires, and misfeeds ...30+ failures out of 1,000 rounds, not too bad for the money, but I need something more reliable."
