Is this a great ammo? Had some lake city 55 gr stuff from 99 and wasn't to great. This lot is from 2000 and up, anyone try this? Thoughts on its preformance? thanks

May need some more info...

Who makes it? Winchester, Federal?

What brand? Got a product number?

How did it come packaged? 500 loose in a box? 20 in a box?

US military ammo should say M855, NOT SS109, which is a less lenient NATO specification, as I recall.

This sounds like M855PD, as real M855 doesn't come packed loose; 10-rd stripper clips (or 30-rd brown boxes for Israeli M855). Read up on the user reviews of M855PD. I'd avoid it, personally.

thanks for the let know, apperciate it.

How abouth the M855 Green tip, Bando and stripper clips in Ammo can , Something like 860 rounds to a can and 1,096 in wood crate LC. Packaged the same way when I was in the service but M193. is this about the same as the M855PD stuff just packaged different.


Thanks in advance
