Is this good ammo? It is marked with a + and LC 02. Is this real XM193? I just bought 500 rounds.

More then likely it's the PD ammo. The PD ammo is considered to be substandard ammo that has QC issues. Some people don;t have problems with it but I would visually inspect all round before firing.

It's the PD version of XM193. You can see the tacked threads about it. Since you've already got it on the way make sure to hand sort them. After that they should shoot fine. I've never had trouble with XM193PD.

What kind of problem? As long as it does not blow up or damage my gun, I wouldn't care.

When you guys hand sort, what kind of problem are you looking for? This is my first time buying sub-grade ammo.

neck splits, bulges around the necks. I pulled all of mine so I can't post any pics.
I had 46 scary ones out of 1000. Most people had far less bad ones, I just got a really crappy batch.

It shoots just fine though so don't be worried, just don't shoot anything that looks iffy.

Thank you Reload_em. I'll look for those problems.
