.223, IMI, M193 ball,Israeli Military Industries 55 grain FMJ-BT

Has any one ran this ammo throught their AR's ?
Any jams or missfires ?
Is it worthy.
What does IMI and M193 ball mean ?

Any insight is appreciated.
Thanks

M193 is it's Military designation.

um, IMI is Israeli Military Industries, but I'm sure you would have figured that out eventually

Yeah,
After writting it I figured parts of my questions were stupid one's.

Is it about the same as the South African .223 ?

Great stuff if you can get it. Is anyone importing it yet?

Looks like the Israelis need it a lot more than our troops. Maybe our SOF's could solve the Palestinian problem.

Not anymore. They wrote me that they no longer sell ANY IMI ammo.

There was a shortage of IMI ammo during the war in the Balkans, so I think this war in Afghanistan has alot to do with it. IIRC, I waited about 8-9 months to get a case of IMI M855 during the Balkans thing.
