Anyone know if IMI still has M193 ammo (packaged in bandoleers with plastic stripper clips and plastic ammo guides) available to the public?

I have one can left. The plastic stripper clips and magazine guides are terrific! I use them for reloads and the clips are easy to load and the magazine guide works slick.

I can not find IMI 5.56 in bandoleers anywhere!hanks!

If it is on plastic strippers, its probably Canadian C-77 ball, with a headstamp of " IVI".... If I had to guess, you have canadian ammo. Take a magnet to it, if the bullet attracts a magnet, it's C-77---but the headstamp would be the first clue...

I've got a small stash, the vendor I got it from took a couple of sealed cans in trade for a gun IIRC... Mine is headstamped with 86 for the year. Not really exceptional ammo by any means, the only reason I keep any is penetration of cover/armor if SHTF-- not likely. I'll probably burn the last of it up next range trip.

The plastic strippers are handy for keeping a few loose rounds in a pack when hunting coyotes...

Thanks for the info guys. I have no clue why I thought it was IMI.
