Has anyone tried this stuff out. I was looking at an ad on Midway's site and the Midway ad states that this stuff is loaded to Nato spec pressures rather than SAAMI Specs. It also says that customer complaints about defective ammo must be taken up with the MFGR, I purchased about 1000 RDS of this stuf when it first came out. Haven't had a chance to try it out in my colt sporter (16 inch bbl). I kind of get the feeling that I got a bad lot of ammo when I read between the lines in the Midway ad. I would appreciate your input and experience. (I scanned the forum for reviews on this ammo and maybe I did not look close enough or there are none.

Their SS109 load sucks the big one. Look in the ammo review thread they have the worst rating of all the different manufacturers. Ammo Review thread

Many thanks for finding the thread for me. Guess I got 100rds of junk unless I got a different lot from the reviewers. Live and learn.

Mag, if you got the 55 gr M193 loading, it ain't bad!

I shot plenty outa my Colt 20" HBAR--no problem.

If you did get the "bad" stuff, call Midway and ask for a return ID number and ship it back for a refund.

Mine is the M193 55gr stuff. I don't expect it to have the accuracy of the Israeli stuff Hansen imported some years ago. Nothing can beat that stuff for accuracy(in my sporter). I'll burn this stuff up a little at a time and use some of the good stuff. Thanks for your prompt responses.

The Ammunition Review and Reference is tacked near the top of this message list, it's a real good idea to consult this before buying some ammo.

When 52% of the people who have tried Olympic had so many problems that they won't buy it again, that's pretty good advice!

I have about shot up the second case. I paid $99 at Gander. I would buy more at that price. One casing stuck in chamber, two failure to fire. This is m193 and I am happy with it. Good for plinking!
