I just received 1,000 rounds of the Southern Ammo .308 today. The order was placed about 3 weeks ago. Their webpage is currently not accepting backorders.
I have gone through the first box of 500, and did a count and visual inspection. The ammo is nicer cosmetically than the M193 I received from them a few weeks ago. Search for that post and check out the pic that I posted. There are fewer tarnished rounds in this batch, and only a couple of them have some dings in the brass. 99% of the ammo is bright and shiny. There were two rounds which were problematic. One was a WCC headstamped rond that had a loose bullet. It appears that the factory crimp was bad on that round. One other round had the bullet not seated concentrically.
To do the visual inspection, I dump the ammo out on my pool table, grab about 10 rounds, and roll them sideways while looking for cosmetic & bullet seating problems. This works pretty well.
All in all, I'm very pleased with this purchase. I'll post pics of some samples tomorrow.
