I bought a few boxes of ammunition marked : 20 CARTRIDGES 5,56 x 45mm SS109 LOT IK 03-01 Made in Bosnia & Herzegovina
The ammo is in white cardboard boxes. The ammunition is brass cased with black tiped bullets. The headstamp is some sort of letter at 12:oo but is too small for me to read. .223 appears at 6:00. The primer is brass with red seal. Is this stuff corrosive?

Actually, this stuff isn't to bad at all. I bought 100 rounds, tried it out and bought another 500. Worked pretty good. The black tips are spoofed to be "armour piercing" special stuff but it is just 855 stuff.

This was sold as AP by a few companies who definately knew better, to include a big ammo seller. They sell on the web and at shows and had a big sign trying to lure in the uninformed. I did tell them that was BS. However, the sign remained up. Big surprise there.

How dirty is it? Any worse than the 855PD stuff?

I think it was a few years back AIM Surplus had these, they sold them in 5 20rd packed in clear plastic wrap. I bought 2 1000rd cases. I thought the black tip made them look evil also...
