This ammo is back in stock at Palmetto state armory with free shipping. This ammo goes quick so better order yours now! This ammo is great for range shooting with no issue, I've used this with my SCAR16 and M4. Just ordered 2k more of this ammo.

What's the deal with this ammo? I've heard several places and people say "Don't shoot anything other than brass". Is this better than steel but not as good as brass? What are the downsides for range practice?

It's steel, but zinc plated.

Thanks BucDan, what good does the zing plating do?

Any ammo is good and will fire with no problem. I can and did fire any .223 5.56 ammo on my scar16 amd does not have/had any sort of issues with non-brass ammo. You should be ok as long as the range you are going to shoot allows bi-metal fmj ammo. Now go get some!!!

I like the idea of zinc plated better than lacquer or polymer coated...

I've always stayed away from steel cased ammo, but might get some of this (I think PSA has me hypnotized - can't stop buying).

IME, poly works the same as brass and the zinc plated (at least, out of my AR). The lacquer coated rounds...yeah, they suck. YMMV.

They are no different than the Silver Bear. I think SB is less expensive also. I have fired nothing but SB and GB out of my AR, thousands of rounds, no problems.

YES, the bimetal jacket will attract a magnet. No good for our evil so cal ranges.

I shot the 62gr MFS ammo through my Chrony on saturday and it averaged 3031FPS.

I read some reviews that this ammo has a strange (bad) smell to it. Can anyone confirm whether this is true or not? Just curious.

It smells like good burnt gun powder to me!

Yes, it does stink more then any other .223 I have shot.
