1st off, I did a search and found nothing. Has anyone used this stuff, or ever dealt with Georgia Arms? Canned Heat I guess is something they're loading themselves and selling.

It is factory remanufactured ammunition. There have been several recent discussions on it with ammo being the way it is right now. Some people have had very good luck with it, one or two supposedly have had guns blown up with it.

Something like Ultramax then? I tried that before and it was filthy.

Very clean good ammo, ran 500 rounds through it with NO problems. Just ordered 3k rounds for it for myself and two others, shooting it this weekend at a big arfcom shoot.

Not sure where you searched, there are several threads here, and other boards too.
Here's what came up at the top of my search.

I know of 2 people that have had kabooms with it (destroyed uppers). Fortunately no one was hurt. I've gone through 1000 rounds and didn't have a problem with it.

Personally, I'll use WOLF for plinking and skip the Georgia Arms but that's just me.

I buy there stuff pertty regularly but just the new manufactured ammo and compnents, but they are also only about a 20 minute drive for me and extra cheap with no shipping.

Hopefully this isn't the dumbest question of the day, and I'm not an armorer or gunsmith, but without the barrel being plugged, how can a round blow up an upper? Does't the force take the path of least resistance?

Update. Georgia Arms left a message on my machine yesterday about a price change. Since they were closed, I checked the website and the price is up $40/k. I called this morning and they will honor the price I ordered it at, but still I'm wondering. Said they'll ship early next week, so I guess I'll see.

Our 3k rounds came in the other day, looks very nice. But at $280/k I will NOT be buying any more. I will stick with Wolf and HSM. Or spend a few $$$ more and buy new ammo.

New PrivPartizen M193 is $275/k, no need to for Canned Heat now.
