Thanks for your reply.. As you know in the past there a been difference between lot.

Hadn't seen any posts on this lot yet.

Not trying to start a flame war....but I've never read or heard about a bad lot of boxed XM193......I know some batches had sealant issues and aren't "water-proof" but I've never heard about a functional problem like blown primers, hard primers, etc. In other words--it always goes bang safely (that is,unless you're holding the target...., in my experience.

Can someone with more experience comment? I've only gone thru a few thousand rounds and maybe had one misfire, but nothing otherwise newsworthy.

I still have 1970's LC ammo in stripper clips (140 rounds per bandolier) in the Philippines, and they always go bang! I notice that they are more accurate than WCC M193 and have a smaller flash signature.

Hope to hear soon.

Just recieved 1000 rnds of lot #102 and put 840 of them on stripper clips last night. Looks just as good as any other XM193 i have ever recieved. Slightly tarnished and a few had very, very small dings....just like i like em. :)

Just received some lot 102 myself but won't shoot it till next weekend. I'm sure it'll go bang just like the rest.

Aye, I received 1,000 rnds of 102 a couple weeks ago but I won't be able to shoot it for another week or two. So far, I've loaded half of it on clips and must say it looks as good as any. I've only come across one cartridge with ny dings and they were tiny and in a safe spot.
