Bought some of this from Wideners after reading about it here.
500 rounds to Kansas came to $101.00 with shipping.
Recoil and flash are compairable to WWB.
The range only goes back to 50 yards.
120 rounds fired with no problems.

I dont think it is any hotter than WWB.
60 rounds fired with no problems.

Fired 28 rounds of 5.56 that I got about a year ago.
I think the little brown boxes of 20 said Federal and lot 23?
With my post ban, what an increase of flash and smoke.

I love this ammo. I've shot about 1k rounds of it with no problems, and it shoots well (better than minute of badguy) for me with irons out to 300 yards. I only wish it was hotter.

I love this ammo as well. It is quite a bit cheaper than WWB. I wish fewer people knew about it!

I like the SS109 IMI. I've gone through a couple of cases without any problems.

Yes. M193 is much hotter than .223, and thus flash will be more pronounced.

is Wideners the only place that sells this ammo?

my 1300 rounds came in yesterday...

i got it to sit on because the ammo is sealed "both primers and bullets"

I have put up a bunch of this in the last few weeks. It is "rainy day" ammo for me as well due to the fact that it's new production and has the sealant and crimped primers etc.....As far as I know, Wideners is the only one that has any right now. KY Wholesale has pictures of some on their website but I don't know that they actually have any in stock.

Same here 4k rounds for a rainy day.
