View Full Version : 5.56mm Ammunition: Norinco 1980's military battle pack 1600 rds

02-28-2008, 10:44 AM
SOLD OUT - thanks Calgunners!

2 full cases of .223/5.56mm military ammunition never to be found in the US:
These are 1980s surplus ammunition manufactured by Norinco (China) and imported into the US in the early 1990s and then import restrictions from China prevented any more from coming into the US. This is NOT reloads - these are factory new ammunition made for the military.

55gr FMJ perfect for target and self defense use in all barrel twist rates. 100% lead core with copper jackets - no magnetic properties perfect for outdoor ranges. Cases are brass with heat treated annealing @ neck with standard primers perfect for reloading. Non corrosive primers means modern ammunition specs (Mil Spec - not SAAMI).

2 cases available - wooden boxed / crated. One opened for photo as shown - the other is still sealed with a steel band. No water damage, no extreme conditions. 20rd boxes times 80 boxes in a case (1600 rounds).

Personally have used many of these cases of this ammo thru my registered AW rifles of various makes/models without a single hiccup. Never had a misfire. No lacquer cases so no worries about chamber buildup. Not dirty like the Wolf stuff.

Very reliable ammunition - pressures are higher @ 5.56mm so do NOT use in .223 chamber uppers. Made for military 5.56mm uppers - cause they are HOT ! This ammunition is accurate and is good for any milspec 5.56mm upper or bolt action .223 rifles.

$600 per case of 1600 rds. (.37 cents per round).:eek:

Full case sale only. No separate boxes - so get your buddies together and split the case.

Too heavy to ship - cash & carry only @ Metroshot.

I loved this ammo back in the day. Haven't seen any for a while.

Definitely runs hot like 5.56. Pretty accurate, too.

norinco ammo are very good, loaded HOT and accurate. But I think they're corrosive though

This should be non-corrosive, marked right on the box.
I still have a little of this in my stash.
Good ammo, loaded hot.
I used to get a good fireball from the front of my Mini 14 back when this ammo was more common.
I am sure it would be fun to shoot at night.

Would it mess up a Saiga .223? it says not to use on .223. Whats your opinion on this?

1 sold - 1 case left -
Questions we are getting - answers:
Remember these are not SAAMI spec ammunition.
These are MIL SPEC (5.56mm) ammunition.
These are non corrosive.
Yes, they do have a big flash and burns very clean.

Great ammo. I shot 1000's of rounds in the past. It does lean more towards 5.56mm than .223.

If it was down south, I would have already purchased it.

Free Bump !
