$325 shipped to CA no tax not a bad deal!

$.32 a round. Probably can't beat that

Sounds like reloads

Anyone have experience with these reloads. .32 a round is tempting in this environment.

At .32 a round it's hard to reload for that price. Certainly not if you factor in time.

Looks like a good deal to me.

Not a bad price for reloads, Just inspect every case before attempting to use these.

What are signs on the case that would lead one to believe that the ammo was unsafe?

Large dents, cracks, flipped primers, and tilted bullets ect. You should always be inspecting your ammo either way. Just be extra careful with this stuff.

Wow, I was thinking about it until I read the second to last post from Global Arms. They went off! Didn't leave me the impression of good customer service.

Good luck to those that buy.

I purchased some from them in February and received different rounds then they described. Horrible quality with dents cracks and no primers. Disputed the charge on my credit as the company never wanted to deal with it. Got all money back plus the junk ammo. Good luck if you buy

w55 i know youre biting your nails on this shipment but please update us on , and how many acutally usable rounds you have.
I have made some poor purchases in the past and wanted to warn everyone about them. It helps us all in the end and put a stop hopefully to poor business practices.

Just got the package, opened it and did a quick run through. There are some smal dents in some cases. Ammo is non magnetic. Pics below.

You can tell by looking at the brass that they are reloads.

Not only are they reloads, but they are also factory "seconds".

Good luck with that stuff, you get what you pay for....

Haha brass $65 primers $30 bullets $90 powder $75 are what I pay. They're blowing out factory seconds at very little profit if any. Just pull down or discard any bad ones and you can't go wrong for planning ammo.

$325 delivered and people b****. Its $800 for new brass ammo now /k at , these are cheap for a reason. Can't go wrong at that price.

It hasn't been $800/k for .223/5.56 for like 6 months now. Where have you been?

Actually new 5.56 can be found for $500/k or less. I have a factory case of 1k Prvi Partizan M193 in sealed battlepacks, I'd sell for $460 FTF if anybody's interested. I will also ship UPS if you want to pay for it.

Wow, some of this stuff is REALLY bad. I've only inspected the first 500rnds, but I had 33 that were unsafe to use. Issues were split necks, busted primers, improperly necked cases (one was necked WAYYY down), and one round even came apart inside spilling powder all over.

The brass also wasn't all Lake City like advertised! In fact, I'd say most of it wasn't Lake City, but rather a mixture of Speer, PPU, Winchester, and PMC.

So, anybody want to buy the "useable" ones off me? Not sure I want this anymore.

EDIT: Apparently they give you more than 500rnds per box. I just counted all mine and I have 975 useable rounds, and 68 unsafe ones.

Does anyone wish to weigh a couple of bullets and the powder charges to see if there is any uniformity?
The desc states 844 military powder used, which should be similar to H335
so I'm guessing powder charges should be around 21-22 gr?
Just a wild guess if its even 844 powder though.

I was just at big 5 this morning they had 1000 on the shelf, it was $800, and my friend just bought 1k for guess how much? $800. That's the data I have.

I'd love to see a link to new brass 556 in stock for under $500. I know a lot of guys that would like some.

Regardless, that doesn't change the fact that the cost of *this* ammo is more or less what component cost would be for a reloader, and I didn't even add the $50 or more per thousand cases you'd have to pay to get them processed.

just got my case and started going through them. only a few bad rounds, about 1-2 per hundred. yes, you must inspect every cartridge, but it does not seem that bad. i'm likely going to buy more. dents are not a problem.
