I know people have really bashed/had problems with Olympic in the past regarding their Green-Tip 62 grn. ammo.

However, has anyone given them a chance on their 55 grn.? If so, what do you think, decent or steer clear?

Thanks

I bought a case (1000 rds) of Olympic M193 a while back and went thru it all. Didn't have any problems with it.

I still have a few hundred of their M193 stuff left. Some problems. Some (about 1 per 100) of the case necks were oversize just enough to cause chambering problems and FTF. Some of the case necks were split once fired. Since I reloaded I kept the brass. The case lengths were all over the shop from too long to right on the boundary of being too short. The primer crimps were very variable. All in all, not the best stuff to ever have graced the chamber of my rifle. Unless it's really cheap I won't be shooting any more of the stuff. Slowworm
