I just picked up 200 rounds of it. Never shot anything but XM193 in my AR. Anyone have any experience with this ammo? Thoughts?

Never had any problems with it. My Bushmaster Diss loves it.

I have shot approx 200 rounds of the stuff in my S&W MP15i with no problems at all. Not as accurate as some of the other stuff but I would not hesitate to take it to the range one bit.

cycles well, not particularly accurate though.

Some people don't like it. Apparently, it varies from individual rifle to rifle as to accuracy.

Personally, I've found it to be one of the more accurate range rounds I've tried in my Bushmaster carbine.

Always fed, fired, and ejected. No short strokes or jams, not one single malfunction with this ammo, ever.

I've got a bunch of it, and buy more whenever I see it because I know it's (at least for me) good to go.

I just shot 100 rounds of it today at the range. It all goes bang but the accuracy I had wasnt very good. I shot ultramax, PMC and some MK262. It had worse accuracy than all of the aforementioned..

Good plinking / SHTF ammo. Zero problems out of my ARs.

Ive put about 80 rds of it through my dpms with no problems at all. Two days ago iI shot a one hole group at 25yds and a few 1" groups at 100 with a old simmons 4x12 i had laying around.(yeah i know its a p.o.s. but im broke lol)
Its decent range ammo id buy it again.

It's pretty reliable, and it's fairly clean too. Never had a cycling issue, but accuracy is not great. It's on par with Wolf military classic or Brown Bear 55grn FMJ. Not very impressive in my opinion. If my local Wally World has it on the shelf I usually pick up a couple boxes.

It feeds and functions just fine through my built from parts AR. Accuracy could be a bit better though as my rifle shoots tighter groups with federal XM193 and pmc 223 (my 55gr FMJ handloads shoot an even tighter group though). If the price is cheap enough it is good pratice ammo from what I found for both my AR and Mini-14 (around here I can get the PMC for a $1 to $1.50 less per box).
