Anyone here tried Lake City .223 XM855 ammunition that is in a brown box allegedly mislabeled XM885? I'll pay the premium over the bulk pack stuff for $6/20 if the mislabel is the only wrong with it.

Picture attached.

Description:
We received a special lot of this ammunition in boxes that had a misprint, the box is marked M885 instead of M855, this simple box misprint is saving you a lot of money and making a very hard to get ammunition available in a very small quantity. Lake City .223 Ammo, is the best .223 Military ammo manufactured. This is the original US Military Lake City Arsenal M855 SS109 Penetrator ammo, 62 grain with steel tipped penatrating core for combat use, very scarce and limited supplies, 20 round boxes with US Markings. This is identical to the ammo being used right now in Iraq by U.S. Troops and is designated armor piercing ammo. Probably the best .223 ammo for combat ever produced in the USA. So scarce in the commercial market we have not sold any in 15 years. Simply put, this is some of the best ammo on the surplus ammo market today at a great price. Non-returnable item; we will not accept any returns on this. Ammo restrictions: We do not sell ammunition to Hawaii, Alaska, Massachusetts; New York City; Washington, DC; or Cook County, Illinois. Please check your state and local laws before ordering ammunition. Ammo Price Is Per 20 round box. Ammo Cannot Ship Air!



I hate all the marketing.. but I don't care as long as the product is good.
Comments?

This is good stuff. Have used them before with no issues. If you have used the XM193 and have an adjustable gas blocks, no adjustments will be required.

Isn't this a moot point since Cheaper Than Dirt won't ship anything to California?
