This stuff is pretty cheap @ my LGS. I've been shooting cheap Wal-Mart Federal, but this stuff is about $5 less per 100. It says Made in ROK, boxer primed and it looks nicer than the bulk Fed; shinier, no dents. I know that's not really a measure of the quality, so I'm asking: Anybody have any experience with it?

try a box

if it goes bang and not boom- a good start
if it achieves what you want and you want more- GO for it

O ya and report back your results

Very similar to the PMC Bronze, and I have not heard many complaints from either.

I've been in two carbine courses were shooters had issues with Hot Shot ammo having Failures to Fire.

I went through 500 rounds of this stuff without a single problem. probably not enough to warrant a good review but it was pretty accurate out to 100 yards for me out of my 1:7 DD.

I shot a couple of boxes that I got for free. It was pretty accurate at 100 yards. I think i shot like a 2 or 1 inch group with no effort.

I've never shot the .223 stuff, but their 7.62x54r stuff is total garbage. Out of 2 different mosins (my buddy gave me some to shoot to see if it would cause problems) we kept getting multiple hangfires and failure to fires.
