good shooting ammo, I use for feral hogs, very accurate.
I wasn't sure of trying steel over brass, but I didn't have any problems and was good for target practice, didn't jam with my DB15
I was leery about steel casing and the type of protective coating used and the resultant fouling. After two hundred rounds the barrel and receiver are not any dirtier than using brass ammo.
What is disappointing was the packaging. I ordered 2000 rounds and it appeared that two 1000 round cases were taped together creating a 56 pound brick. In transit the package broke open and 122 rounds of ammo were lost. UPS did a great job repackaging the ammo, but did not recover all of the spilled product. Now I am having to file a claim with UPS and see where that goes. In the future you might consider shipping two 1000 round cases. Freight is by weight and two 28 pound boxes cost the same as one 56 pound box, but have a much better chance of being handled better and arriving intact.
Bought a case of this and used about 200 rounds the first day,no misfires and no misfeeds.Great ammo for the range
Great cheap target ammo. Works well in my AR
Great stuff to buy in bulk for target shooting and plinking. Cycles through my Colt AR fine. SurplusAmmo has it for the best price I can find ($0.27/rd shipped as of this review). Highly reccommended for the AR operator who wants cheap training ammo.
