"I bought 100 rounds of these for my M4 style AR15, wasn't too sure how they were going to perform for the price when compared to the price of other 5.56 rounds. Every bullet went bang, and the brass looked great. I'll definitely be getting some more of these."

"Okay this ammo is great. Stock up now. I am kicking myself for not getting more than 10 boxes. PMC did a very good job with this ammo. It's very affordable and really nice 5.56 ammo. One thing to note thats very important. DO NOT BUY THIS AMMO IF YOUR RIFLE IS .223 only. You will damage your gun if you have a .223 and shoot this stuff out of it. This is a NATO round, just like the 9mm NATO. They are of higher pressure only of which a 5.56 nato barrel can handle. Anyways, there is a lot of green tips out there, and this is one that is affordable and very good in quality. 5 stars all the way."

"Just wanted to say great job on the shipping of my order. Wasn't expecting my PMC X-TAC ammo to arrive so quickly. Gave the bullets a 4 rating because I haven't had a chance to shoot any yet but I have shot the .223 55g PMC rounds and they worked great in my SR556. Good clean ammo that doesn't empty my wallet."

"I've tried Lake City, American Eagle, Remington. This PMC was more consistent round to round than any of the others. I will be buying more of this. High quality for a reasonable price."

"The only things I noticed different between this ammo and Lake City reloads were 2 things- [1]the PMC rounds are clean and flawless [2] the PMC rounds are a hell of a lot cheaper! I just fired several boxes of each today and did not notice any functional difference- no FTF's, no FTE's, no loading issues; both seem to have the same recoil and accuracy, so it's a no-brainer= I'll be buying lots more of this stuff real soon so folks, PLEASE SAVE ME SOME! LOL"

"First, although shipping is to high everywhere, I did get my ammo in two days and that is wonderful! I got them today and just fired ten a quarter mile at my pond dam. I was a bit worried about accuracy out of my Mini 14, which I learned IS safe with Nato ammo but was not sure about the twist. Must be ok as I'm short several rocks and patches of floating moss now. It is clean ammo, I didn't notice any difference in the way it shot than any other ammo I use. Bought five boxes of this and five federal FMJ which I know is good stuff. I'd say buy it guys, It's good ammo at a good price."

"This is good ammo, but the title is a little misleading. The ammo is not actually a full steel core. This ammo has a steel penetrator and a lead core. I cut one open with a Dremel tool to check it out. The front half of the bullet cavity is steel and the back half is lead. The bullets are a 50/50 split of steel to lead."

"I bought a good amount of this ammo for practice, sighting in my scope and just you're general plinking and I will have to admit it fares pretty well. I am shooting it out of a DPMS AR-15 and I have had 0 problems with it, it shoots clean and straight. I honestly plan on buying quite a bit more."

"I recently purchased 500 rounds of this stuff. I ran at least 200 rounds (much of it in rapid succession) through my DPMS AR-15 with a 16\" barrel. On the move, rapid fire practice. Not one misfire, jam, or any other type of dysfunction. Accuracy was good. Shoot and move practice, most all shots hitting pie plate size targets at 15-40 meters.I will be stocking up on this ammo."

"Shoots as well as the NATO specification SS109/M855 (out of my 16\", 1:7 Colt AR-15) at a lower cost. Ideal if you don't have a legitimate need for the crimped in primers and ultra waterproof-ness of the real deal NATO specification (has the little cross on the head-stamp) stuff."

"This ammo is pure junk! I have an M4A3 style bushmaster; all this ammo does is jam up my gun. I spend more time un-jamming my firearm then shooting it. I have put thousands of rounds through my gun and I only have had problems with this ammo. Spend the couple extra dollars and buy the PMC Bronze ammo instead, it shoots great! As always, CTD\uFFFDs service and shipping is great."

"This is the most accurate ammo I have shot. @ 100yrds it repeatedly hits same hole on target. M&P 1:7 twist barrel loves this stuff. I wish I would have bought more. Now it says out of stock."

"Roman 979 or whatever it is could use a new claw/extractor spring assembly.This ammo rocks.It's clean and accurate.Who could ask for more?Trouble is ,it's not always available. Next batch comes in Jan/12.Can't wait. Remember it's 5.56 ammo,don't run this in .223 marked guns."

"I bought this ammo a while ago and have shot Lake City, WCC, and PMC 5.56. Out of all three WCC was the dirtiest, PMC the least. Pay the cheaper price for new brass and quality ammo that will shoot everytime you wont regret it. who cares if its made in korea... most everything in america is made in some part of asia anyways."

"Shoots well. Seems to have a little more recoil and shoots a couple inches higher at 100 yds than Fed 55 grain FMJ. Don't know if it's me or if it is a little hotter load. Great price, am stocking up."

"I just purchased another 200 rounds of this ammo and plan on getting more soon. This ammo is what I use in my SR556 Ruger and is very accurate. I like using this ammo and CTD has made the price right for me to purchase again. Only thing negative I have to say is that it is a little dirty compared to some brands. But cleaning the SR556 is a breeze anyways. Good job on price and shipping CTD."

"I was real skeptical about buying these rounds because of all the bad talk I have heard. I was really amazed when I had got to shoot these. The recoil was was amazing and the grouping was close. I didn't measure it but it was amazing. I would give it 5 bullets but the price was a little high. Well worth it now and will be buying more when they become available."

"This is by far the best ammo for the price you will ever get. Very consistent and powerful. I am very pleased the way my Bushmaster AR15 handled it. No jams and very clean after firing 200 + rounds. I will order another few hundred or so rounds for this price."

"Not target accuracy but the price point is great plinking/Shooting ammo. 1.5" @ 100yd from a Ruger 1in8 AR556. 1000 rounds and not a single issue. No dirtier than any other rounds out there. Rare fliers but out of 1000 I would expect 1-2% to be off in powder/seat length/bullet weight/etc."
