Came in bandoleers. I hear that IVI is canadian but hows it possible for real M193 to be '04 date stamped?

Where'd you get it, Cleatus?

I'd say it's real and current.

I thought Clinton banned surplus sales so there's a certaincut-off date?

Clinton banned sales of *US goverment* surplus... thats Canadian ammo you've got there.

Are you sure its M193? Is it marked on the bandos or boxes or ammo cans?

I'm pretty sure the Canadian millitary is issued ammo that is similar to USGI M855, using the SS109 bullet, but its not green painted on the tips. What you have is probably IVI M855 equivalent to the USGI stuff. The IVI stuff has very pointy bullets... looks similar to 193...

Does a magnet stick to the bullet?
