I got about 500 rounds last time they were in stock. havent had the chance to shoot any yet. Some will say that it snt that great of a round. Others will say it is one of the best. But for seconds it is in pretty great shape. Alot better looking than XM193 I have gotten.

I just got a new RR with SS 16 inch barrel and it fired 10 rounds into 1 1/4 inches and the guns not even broken in yet. It shot better than Hornandy Match 75 grain and Tap 223 75 grain which surprised me.

I don't care LOL I ordered my 15 boxes.

They are just slow as turtles to deliver. The last batch took several weeks.

I know you're going to buy it all up before I get paid in a week.

So pre-emptive fuck you.

29.95 for 50 rounds of 5.56???

There isn't anything you can run thru a 5.56 that's worth that much money, Jethro.

In a side note, I get errors when I try to use the Brownel website while at work.

Theres lot more expensive ammo than this in 223/5.56. I just bought some 69 grain gold medal by federal. TAP is kinda high also. and on and on.

Have you shot this stuff?????

When I shoot a 2 inch 20 round group at 200 yards from my M4 and get a report and recoil that reminds me of my 30-30.... I get a big smile on my face that won't go away.

Priceless...
Link Posted: 8/17/2006 2:57:55 PM EDT
NO kidding.
I shot it for the first time in a brand new RRA with SS 1/8 twist Monday and got 10 shots in 1 1/4 inch and thats first time I have fired it.

Hey, I left you a couple boxes of Wolf though...
Link Posted: 8/17/2006 5:31:28 PM EDT
Had to order 3 boxes to try out in my 1/8 barrel. I hope its good for $100!
Link Posted: 8/17/2006 5:50:43 PM EDT
Ordered 5 boxes. I had a BO on some BH 75gr. OTM with Cabela's and cancelled it to get this. I'll just buy a half case of the 75gr stuff from JKiser since he has it in stock.

Can't wait to try it out in my Denny's RECON barreled upper!

I was hoping to shoot some of the BH 75gr in my new RRA Monday but I sent it back to BH due to some quality issues. They are sending me replacement ammo tomorrow.
My 1/8 twist although new did not seem to like the 75 grain tap or Hornandy match 75 grain near as well as this 77grain.

My 1/8 is a CMMG chrome lined. I am curious to see how it will do in that. I know a lot of folks have the SS barrels.

If you think that's insane, have you ever priced Federal's 62 grain bonded "Tactical" round, $25+ per 20?

Sorry, not hijacking,

Sold out as of 6:07 am eastern time. Damn that was quick!

Sheesh,
Next time I keep my mouth shut. I wanted to add another 10 boxes to my order. Several weeks ago it lasted for days.

Dig it! I guess if you are buying competition ammo, that's not too ridiculous of a price. But I'd guess that most mullets here are buying it cuz it's the latest fad, and they've been snowed by the notion that M855/M193 are not lethal.

So do you think the ammo is worth that much or not? Or is it just that you think everybody's a moron? I think it's a safe bet that plenty of folks on here enjoy repeatable accuracy. I know I do.
Link Posted: 8/18/2006 7:41:09 AM EDT
I have plenty of XM 193 and 855. I just bought a 1/8 twist and wanted some heavy grain ammo that I could store. Only thing I saw that was available. I was hoping the HSM ammo would shoot well but for now putting it on the back burner.

hats off to Black Hills MK262

I tried some out while zeroing my LMT Defender 2000 M4
I bought a Larue cantilever mount for my old ML2.

Useing the 4moa dot I could get 10rds to group in a little 3/4 inch ragged hole @ 50yards

Not bad for a M4 and a red dot

I also notice alot of muzzle blast with my Phantom w/ closed bottom

Better filters where you work, I'd be carefull about suf=rfing at work if they went to that much trouble. They could be tracking you also.

With the new batch of MK262

I find in my LMT Defender 2000 with a 14.5 barrel

The Black Hills 77gr shoots the best groups
The Black Hills 75 wich is a TAP bullet very accuratre .
but the 77SMK shoots a TAD tighter


The MK262 that I shot was very accurate considering the Cannclure and how HOT it is
Link Posted: 8/24/2006 11:55:29 AM EDT
Just got my 15 boxes from Cabellas. Its great looking stuff. I only opened one box but looks better than the other two batches I bought. Its 06 stamped with heavy red sealer (winchester) on the brass.
