"Ordered a box earlier this week, and got it by the end of the week. Fast shipping and great customer service. Was missing a few rounds. E-mailed customer service and within two hours, I was reimbursed for the missing rounds!"

"Make sure you count your ammo! I only receive 269 rounds. I called customer service and they said they would credit my account but it will take 4 days."

"These showed up faster than I expected. I plan on shooting some this weekend. I received all 300. They are packed loose in a bag and double boxed."
3.0 5
"I met the UPS man at the door and began counting. The count finished at 297, three rounds short. At $1.33 per round, that equates to four bucks out of my pocket. That's OK though. Glad I can get any ammo to take to the range."

"I received my order, the 5.56 and a box of 50-40SW in 25 hours. That\uFFFDs crazy. I also got 304 rounds in the box, so I must have gotten a few of the rounds some people were short.For my money right now this is a good price (if you can find them anywhere), and the fastest shipping I\uFFFDve ever seen, on anything I ever bought on-line."

"I have bought these boxes before and I do not expect perfect match-grade ammo. I believe these are once-fired reloads and not perfectly accurate but usually great for plinking. I was slightly disappointed with my last purchase because roughly one fifth of the shell casings looked like they had been chewed on by a grizzly bear... Or at the least, an extremely large ferret. ;) I realize not to expect the best when buying bulk, but I think next time I'll try something different."

"Got my full 300 on Thursday. Looks good but wont be able to fire them until next year. Minor dings on the cartage but nothing that should affect it. 4 Day shipping to this unfriendly gun state."

"I ordered these on a Sunday evening and they show up Tuesday afternoon. The ammo is in great shape but I have better things to do than to count them. Unlike some previous input I have read, I truly don't care if three cartridges are missing."

"I did not count the ammo. I have used this stuff in combat and it works great. Ran the same out my AR-15."
3.0 5
"It seems like somebody's skimming a little off the top. Like others who have posted I am counting mine and I am getting about 99% of the cartridges. I guess that's not horrible, but the real concern is it makes me wonder who/what is losing rounds in this process. Is someone at the plant stealing them? And I personally don't want to support the cause of somebody who might be stealing ammunition. No thanks."

"Fast shipping, just as described. Accurate count. No complaints."

"This is the 3rd batch purchased from here. Count was correct and shipping was on time. Yes some rounds had minor dings, but if expect something different when it states loosely packed well......"

"Anybody who served in the military knows the green tip ball rounds we used... its all thrown into a bag and no damage was done.. I got it 4 business days and I live in Michigan."

"Order arrived in 3 days, 300rnds were all there. They were loose packed but cases looked fine. Tips were in nice shape as well and all passed the magnet test. I couldn't be happier."
5.0 5
"This is some good hard-hitting ammo, plenty accurate for its intended purpose, and my DPMS rifle loves it. Shipping was amazingly fast as always. I did not count the rounds before going to the range so I don't know if it was exact, but I'm very pleased with the performance. Get some while you can."

"For the people who are writing reviews about a few rounds missing on each package -- stop whining, and have some perspective. Earlier this year, you couldn't even buy ammo (no one had stock), let alone for anything less $1/round. And regarding a few rounds potentially missing, do you really think someone is sitting there HAND COUNTING this stuff? It's based off WEIGHT -- not specific quantity. Unless you're missing 30+ rounds, stop whining, and deal with it like a man. You're still getting your money's worth! There's far bigger tragedies in life than a couple rounds missing. Good grief."

"This ammo is awesome as always. Shoots perfect, is very clean, and it has sick penetration on vehicle and barriers.Ran this ammo out of a full 150rd armatac saw drum out of a friends select fire BCM m4.Ran like a scalded dog! Not one single jam or hiccup.Great ammo. Will be buying more by the end of the month!"

"Ammo came super quick. Havent had a chance to shoot any but i did go through them and there werent any dings or dents. Also some people have said they didnt receive the total amount, i got all 300."

"Not one to leave bad reviews unless very dissatisfied. I don't mind \"ugly brass\" but large dents and many small ones clustered on almost every round. Cheap is cheap and this is that. Have not fired it, almost worried to."

"Very hard to find the dented cases mentioned by other reviewers. I counted the total number delivered ..340 rounds. I'm ordering more now and if I'm shorted more than 40 I'll be disappointed."
4.0 5
"The 5.56 rounds look good. I haven't fired them yet. I was shorted one round. I didn't call CTD about the shortage. No big deal. A friend of mine has bought them in the past and they seem to fire without a problem. I expect the same when I get to the range."

"I received my online order in three days and in good condition. When I counted out the rounds though I found that I was 4 rounds short. I called the 1 800 number that night and the representative made a report, passed it along to the appropriate department and I received my refund the next day. Great ammo, no issues with performance and the price was right. Customer service is excellent."

"Super fast shipping. Orded 2 boxs at once, Both shipped in 1 larger box. Not the cleanest brass i have seen but far better than what the Army hands out. Great performance, had 1 or 2 not fire first time but that could have been due to the dirty weapon. All in all great buy."

"Got my 599 rounds today, counted while putting them in my stripper clips. Everything looks good, a few had some dinged but nothing to worry about. Fast shipping and glad to see prices are starting to get back to normal and easier to find ammo, can go back to shooting."
3.0 5
"Though the purchase probably rates 5 bullets I only gave it the middle ... 3 ... because I can't get to the range for a while and can't comment on performance. The rounds are as manufactured, in good condition, and what I hoped I'd receive when I ordered, so I'm pleased with the purchase at such a great price."

"Got my 299 rounds other then the minor dings on them, they look great Im satisfied. Im so satisfied i order 420 more of the fresh off the line deal that cones with stripper clips and an ammo can."

"This is amazing!! Finally bought an AR-15 because this ammo craze is almost over, bought a AR-15 plus a bumpski stock from Fostech, and needed a lot of rounds. Found this deal and man i am happy. Didn't count it but I'm not going to complain if a few rounds are missing, but all looked great. Great price and very fast shipping straight to my door. Thanks so much CTD I will buy lots more."

"After ordering, I received my bullets about 7 days later. I received a box with a Ziploc bag containing 310 rounds of green tip 5.56. While I feel mildly abused with $18 shipping and handling, I did choose to buy it anyway. The ammo seems consistent and fresh enough to suit the purpose. No complaints about the ammo."

"I want to thank Cheaper than Dirt for the economical means they have placed at the gun owners disposal. I have received 4 cases of 5.56 green-tip and all of it looks serviceable. I did not count individual rounds since CTD most likely goes by weight not volume. I will be purchasing more rounds from Cheaper Than Dirt they give you what is advertised with a well packaged product!"

"Great ammo....great price. I particularly like that it's 62 grain as my rifle has a 1:7 twist barrel. I have lots of this ammo and and shoot lots of it and have NEVER had any failures. So glad the price has fallen to pre-shortage levels. I didn't really need it but couldn't resist buying 600 rounds at this price."

"Ammunition came fast as usual, but I was disappointed to see it come loose when the advertising says \"300 Round Box NATO Lake City XM855\". There is no box, Very misleading wording. I recommend CTD adversing more accurately. I don't have a way to store loose Ammo in my ammo cabinet. Thanks."

"Brassie pretty beat up and almost crappy looking. Must be military rejects. Have not got to shoot any yet but expect feeding problems. Lake City would probably be ticked to know that this ammo made it to market with there name on it ( I hope) !!! Need to shoot it first before I say to much."

Ran all 300 rounds through a Bushmaster carbon 15 without a single incident or misfire. After proper dope, kept really good grouping @ 20 meters, within 1\". Put 90 rounds through 2X2\" paper target @ 100 meters with only two strays. Brass was pretty clean. Good deal for decent ammunition."
