He bought a couple hundred Armscors to try a while back and found way too much variance in weight, length and shape for them to useful in anything other than very casual plinking. I can't shoot at 6" gongs at Chabot (no zombie targets either) so now I'll be spending the new year sorting 2000 bullets to see if I can coax any kind of accuracy out of them. If sorting fails, I can probably sell them to a guy who needs ammo for reaction drills. haha.
Rule of thumb is that Armscor components are just a step above total crap, cheaper than other stuff for a reason. There is much truth in the old saw about getting what you pay for
