Just wondering. Was pretty sure for awhile only the castaway stuff was available to us.

Unless the boxes have a label on them saying "factory seconds" then they are the real deal. SGAmmo used to sell the factory seconds and they had a very distinctive label on the 20rd boxes.

When I showed it to my friend who was a Marine, he was surprised by it, and said it was the EXACT thing they were issues, box and all.

CTD has the stuff. Or did, haven't checked since the panic buying started.

Palmetto has some in stock, doesn't say if it's firsts or seconds.

For what it's worth, whatever PSA is selling shot pretty poorly from my 1/9 rifle. Groups opened up literally twice in size compared to 64 grain gold dot.

I'm sure it'll be minute of nose at in home ranges, that's all i need.

Hmm, that's too bad.

I have not keep up to speed on this ammo, is it just a OTM round or is it bonded? I seen barrier and a OTM doesn't strike me as being good through barriers...

And that's what PSA has. It's just 25% cheaper at PSA.

Anyone know if there is any difference at all between the AB49 brown box stuff shown in the picture posted near the top of the thread, and the T556TNB1 white box stuff listed in the links?

Just the box as far as I know.
Link Posted: 11/11/2012 9:10:48 PM EST
SGA also has the white box stuff, seconds according to them.
Link Posted: 11/12/2012 8:14:28 AM EST
SGA's MK318 is also marked 'factory seconds, low velocity'. Palmetto's MK318 is not so marked, and is very accurate out of my SCAR 16.
Link Posted: 11/12/2012 9:10:43 AM EST
So sga has an inferior round, for 3 bucks more. Makes sense. I think I'm going to order more from PSA before they run out.

Psa hasn't run out of mk318 since it's been relesed to the public a year and a half ago or so. O they also stated in thier forum that these are first run not seconds that was a while back.

For those in the southern states, Academy carries the white box Mk318 (T556TNB1)
