    I probably won't shoot any of it until wolf commands over $600 a case.

    To all - Please post your experiences as you shoot up any of this ammo. I'm sure we'd all like to know.
    I haven't heard of anyone else with bullets not fully seated like mine either - so there seems to be a wide variety of issues.

    I've had no issues with 'basic' performance on those that I have shot, but I've only shot maybe 210 rounds so far, so I can't provide a full report.

    I've resorted to simply putting them aside and focusing on other stuff.

    I don't know if they found a way to use excess HPT brass or it was for some other reason though. If it is true HPT brass, I'd be weary about using since it was shot under extreme conditions.

    The nickel plated Lake City 5.56 brass I have is stamped 03 along with a circle with a (+) sign in it, and does not appear to have (or have had) any purple primer sealant.

    I scrounged a considerable amount of Remington nickel plated brass that day as well. I guess I have several hundred at this time.

    I have since learned that this was issue ammo for a couple of our 'range guests' at work, and the next time they visit, I'll be looking for more!

    If nothing else, they'll be nice to reload - put on stripper clips - and set aside for a 'rainy day'... ;D

    The circle and crosshair is the NATO proofmark. It's also the astronomical symbol for the Earth. It sounds like it is the Federal tactical rounds they were seeling not long ago. All of that stuff I have seen was LC03.
    When have any of our plans ever actually worked? We plan, we get there, all hell breaks loose.

    Re: IMI 5.56 Ammo - Cheap

    Just finished going through my RGuns ammo. Here is the breakdown:

    Total of 2 Bags of 500 rounds each
    1980 - 51 (mostly 82')
    1992 - 86
    1993 - 24
    1994 - 50
    1995 - 259
    1996 - 35
    Rem - 45
    Duds - 85

    Total Rounds - 1100
    Good - 878
    Bad - 222

    Note - most of the 80's and 92' rounds the powder was very loose. I am going to discard these rounds as i don't want to risk the barrel (or myself for that matter).

    Wow - 25% of yours was bad. That was worse than my shipment!

    Maybe you can reclaim the components from those with loose powder and at least salvage a portion of your expenditure?

    Re: IMI 5.56 Ammo - Cheap

    mps....,or anyone else:
    How do you determine that the powder "is loose"???

    Also, some of this rgun ammo I bot has very small dings and/or small pricks like someone slightly hit the casing with an icepick. None of these appear to go thru the case. Otherwise, the cartridges appear OK. How concerned should I be about these dings??

    Thanks

    New to forum. XCR here by mid FEB. will be a good B-day present, or Valentines present for wife...I think not! I've purchased several cases of 5.56 from Nachez Shooting Sports http://www.natchezss.com/ammo.cfm?co...TOKEN=91004433 all has been new. Mainly PMC, Some S&B. Just depends on what they have at the time. They have always had Wolf, for what ever reason. If they are out of something you can start an account and they will notify you of when a product comres in and you can order it then. They tend to keep you to a two case max per item number. Kinda sucks...beggars can't be choosers.
