I found this on a local ammo distributors site here recently.

Maxxtech 5.56x45mm Ammunition PTGB556 55 Grain

It's brass cased, 55 grain fmj and as I understand it, made in Taiwan.

I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with it.

Bought a case of 9mm - junk! Lots of failure to feeds - in Glocks!

I'd avoid it.

Maxxtech 9mm or Taiwanese made 9mm?

The highly rated "Wolf Gold" 5.56 is made in Taiwan. Most likely the same stuff with a new brand name on it. A quick Google search indicates at least two different manufacturers of Maxxtech brass cased 5.56.

I found some in stock and I was wondering if it's any good either. I'm not getting anywhere google searching, did you find out anything about it since asking?

I finally was able to get some info from the importer, GH Ammunition, and they verified that this was made by Igman Ammunition Factory in Bosnia & Herzegovina.

The ammo seller I talked to said it was made in Taiwan, which was incorrect.

I was hoping it was Wolf Gold .223 just under a different importer, but alas I'll think I'll pass on this one.

I bought 400 rounds off outdoorlimited shot 60 rounds so far seem to work just fine, it cycles and feeds well, just got into guns so not looking to go nuts to find out how accurate it is but the groups i shot are ok (new shooter so they are actually pretty shitty but probably just me). Anyways it goes boom and makes holes!

Ya ive bought 400 rounds off outdoorlimited shot 60 rounds off so far seems to run good, the primers are sealed so thats a bonus. I dont have a chronograph so cant say how fast they are. Theyre your average m193 and if you can find any cheap i recommended picking some up.
