"First off the shipping was amazing.It was super fast,it only took 3 days to ship from Texas to California. The ammo itself came very clean. Haven't shot it yet but I'am sure it will be excellent. Overall was great service and very clean ammo. Five stars definitely."

"For the price, it was very nice. Grouping at 25m for a 300m sim target was excellent. No FTF or FTE. But, unfortunately, it didn't have the penetrating power that I wanted, so next time, I'll have to go with the 62 grain steel core; much better at taking out car engine blocks than the 55 gr stuff."

"I have purchased many cases of this ammo and have never had a misfire. This ammo is great for stockpiling, target practice, and hunting. I have hunted hogs, coyotes, and other random pests with this ammo and it does a great job. As far as carbon build up, it is standard. The ammo ships loose, and after inspecting the first few cases for damage, they earned my trust in their packaging and reliability. I continue to purchase this ammo for my personal reserve. This ammo fires great for any standard civilian AR with the 1:9 twist. Also, the grouping at 100 meters of three rounds overlap center mass."

"Although I'm confident the ammo is fine, the box condition after receiving it leaves a little to be desired. The original tape was cut open to insert the invoice then taped back up. The tape broke during transit, and was about to break open completely upon arrival. Also, whoever cut open the box to add the invoice and catalog also sliced open the bag. I guess I'm lucky I got 999 of the 1000 rounds that were supposed to be in the box. It is a very heavy box, so if you, CTD, are going to continue packaging it in that manner I highly suggest you add more than one strip of sealing tape to the box."

"Arrived fast in excellent condition. On the range it performed as expected with NO disappointments. To bad it is out of stock I'd buy more to stock up.Shipping cost was a little high but lower product cost more than made up for the difference from other vendors."

"Well packaged & arrived quickly. 20 rounds went off without a hitch. Fires similar to Federal's LC 5.56 with the exception of the crimped primer. I'll enjoy reloading these and a bargain even with my TX tax."

"My Wife and I have always used Federal .223 and always had good luck shooting with it. When CTD has a deal I am always in on a good deal. Due to bad weather Rain,Snow,and just plane old cold we havent shot a lot.I just glad we can still use our guns due to gun bands and everything they could do but we won that one. NRA Lifer. Donate heavy this year so we still can shoot Federal Ammo."

"Got the bulk pack in today, and put them into clips for storage found one round in the whole box that was damaged (appears from manufacturing, overcrimp of the neck) but it was made up to me because there was 11 extra rounds. The pack ships as it looks in the picture above but federal added a heavy bag liner."

"Now, I hadn't counted it all out as some have because I'm too lazy and trusting. But it's beautiful American ammo! It is clean, not all dirty smoke like the cheap stuff (which has its role and I need to get more), and not a single problem found. And CTD, thanks! No way i could afford 1000 rounds at any local shop."

"I ordered one thousand rounds and got fourteen extra rounds. Cant complain about getting extra ammo. The rounds were pretty clean, not much residue. There were dings on some of the cartridges but not too many, this is expected when buying loose ammo and has never effected operation of my weapon system. All in all, good buy; you get what you pay for."

"Got this package of love shipped to my house in great time, never had any issues with CTD shipping, always quick and precise. The ammo received was in great condition and even got a couple extra rounds. Taken these munitions to the range a couple times now and haven't been disappointed, no FTFs or FTLs in about the 200 rounds put through. My only complaint is I don't have enough money to buy more. Will definitely be back!!"

Bonus!! 14 extra rounds in the box! Great service from CTD. I am sure that I will have zero issues with the ammo. Federal is class 1 in terms of quality and performance."

"Ammo seems clean. I haven't fired it yet. I noticed first that the count was short, so I loaded them into stripper clips just to be accurate. I was shorted 28 rounds. I read reviews where people received too many rounds, but mine wasn't the case. I contacted customer service and they resolved the situation for me."
