I was at a gun show today and bought a 300 round battle pack of South African 5.56. Package is marked "300 RD 5.56 x 45mm BALL M1A3 CTN 362 A 86"

I know this is good stuff - at $49.95 should I got back and buy all he has?

That stuff is great. I shot 1200 rounds of it and didn't have any problems. It was also marked 1986.

I'd pick up all I could afford to buy. I like it a lot better then a lot of the new junk that is being scrapped out to the civi market.

Well I went back and got all I my budget would allot. I hear this is good poor man's SHTF ammo and since I don't have a stockpile yet, this is a good start. I still would like to find some real M855, even if it's just a few mags worth - anyone know where to get small quantities of it?

1200 rds for 200 + tax. Forgive the quality of the pics. They were taken with my cell phone.
