Just curious. The only spotless brass I have seen thus far is the PD sold in cans at funshows. Anybody?

Nope all of the XM193 I have seen looked like shit. But it all shot great. With the exception of some PD ammo.

All factory ammo leaves the machine that way. The fancy commercial stuff
is polished post-loading to look pretty in the box.


And beware. If you see polished pretty nice looking 193PD, it ain't 193PD more than likely.
XM193 is not shipped from the manufacturer in ammo cans.

That gunshow crap can blow up your gun. Don't buy 193PD that isn't
still sealed in the proper box.

It's no good. Ship it to me and I'll get rid of it for you.

If I were you, I wouldn't want them to come spotless and shining. I don't trust others when they play with them to get my attention. If you're in supermarket next time, don't buy grapes that are shining clean. I prefer grapes that come with little white powder or the yeast, which is natural. I think they come off if you bleach them because I don't want no Colorox in my stomach.

You are mistaken.
Commercial ammunition is not polished after loading.
Any tumbling is done prior to primer insertion.

Maybe true. I do know that XM193PD is most certainly not polished, and does
not ship in an ammo can, so whatever the original poster has, it's not 193.

I just picked up 60 round of XM193 lot 101. I have never used the stuff before. It has '05 on the headstamp and is definately tarnished but I want MORE

It is my understanding that commercial ammo is tumbled before it is packaged. I have heard this from more than one source. The brass however is heavily polished before loading also. Military brass is not polished at all. The discoloration around the neck of the rounds is where the brass was annealed. This is on virually all ammo, but commercial manufacturers polish it out.

The military don't care what it looks like, as long as it works. I guess shiney brass could have negative aspects in a military situation also. Could give your position away if it's exposed.

I won't speak for other ammo manfacturers.

Federal ammunition goes from the loader to the packer. There is no tumbling between.
