bought some a li'l over a month ago. it looks like they're in stock again. i haven't shot any of it yet, but these look to be one of the best prices out there for .223. I think mine came out to about $400 even for shipping to the bay area.

people rave about how great these are for plinking.

I bought this last month too for $406 shipped. I found 1 dented brass round in the first 100 rounds I loaded into mags. I have yet to inspect the rest. Anyone find bad ammo in thier batch?

I stuggle with this since I just got Federal XM 193 for just a little more.

How is the brass marked? Nato Cross?

I'm not trying the threadcrp, just trying to determine the value for myself.

its Centurion, its good stuff. shoots fine.

Not nato stamped. This ammo has slower specs than Nato even though it says it's m193 which it isn't. I think someone chronoed this and got around 2800fps. I bought a thousand of this and shot 500 rounds throughout various AR15s and never had a problem. It might be slow ammo but it still goes bang. As far as accuracy goes, it's pretty good. I was able to get 1-2 moa groups at 75 yards with iron sights. Overall, good plinking ammo.

Btw, it said that it's made by a US defense subcontractor...but I don't think our military forces used non-nato spec rounds.

I shot 2" groups with irons with this stuff from a 16" carbine at 100 yards. It was hands down my best group to date with that particular gun, but it shoots great. "slow ammo" is a relative thing when I guess we're only talking about 200fps in variation.

This is .223, as stated on the website and box, not 5.56, even though it's headstamped M193 and the box label says M-193. It's made by a defense contractor, according to AIM, but not made to M193 spec, so they're treating M-193 as a brand, not a spec.

I got a case from Aim the other week for $370 shipped in ammo cans, and have only re-bagged 500 rounds so far. Maybe 1 in 15 rounds had a tiny dent around the neck, and a few rounds were dented enough for me to pull them.

Here are the worst 5 rounds from the first can. Everything else looked much better. I'm pretty happy with them, but I haven't taken any out yet.

I got more last time they had it in stock. Had it in 10 days or so and am happy with it.
