So what about the AMA Denex ammo?

Any experience with it??

Just ordered a can for my Son.
Will probably be sold out before order arrives and we get to test it.
ETA: Looked up the ammo name online and found several reviews on Midway's page.
Reviews stated that it shot better than Federal, but that the stripper clips are plastic, NOT metal as Midway's add indicated....
The plastic strippers are NOT compatible with USGI mags. (According to reviews.)

The review on Midway was dated 27-Nov-12, so maybe the new batch is on steel clips?-Even though Midway stated steel?
Don't know, is all the info I have.
Will have to research what mags. the Danes use.

I bought 750 rounds of this ammo last year and it is good to go.

The rounds I got were on the plastic strippers. I moved them to regular strippers.
I WILL NOT COMPLY

That seems odd, being that it is advertised as NATO ammo, and is M855 although the tip IS NOT green.
Figured being NATO, the clips would be standardized.

The plastic ones are the same as Canadian ones. They aren't the US ones.

The tips aren't green marked because that was only used here in the US to distinguish it from M193.

That is why the Canadian and other NATO stuff is plain tipped.

I got some last year. It shot at least as well as other XM855. It lost the occasional primer and showed soot around the primer on a few others. It is pretty looking stuff & I was looking forward to reloading it. No go on reloading - loose primer pockets.
