Reading the reviews on this stuff it seems like some guys just aren't satisfied.

I'm more concerned about safety - first to myself or anyone I take to the range and my rifles of course in a very close second.

Thoughts on this reject training ammo from a safety standpoint?

you should be just fine. just give it a visual inspection before you stoke the magazines with it.

my understanding was that the pd stuff has subpar velocity

I guess you have to look at what you want to do with it.
for training, it's just fine. The only problems I've seen or heard of with it are cosmetic blemishes
or the occasional crunched round, ergo the cursory visual inspection.
as far as velocity, hey, it wasn't match ammo to begin with, and I would be hesitant to entrust
my life with anything sold as " training ammo".
Just my two cents.

I sold some LC ammo a few months back. The buyer (along with two other potential buyers) damn near made me swear it wasn't the PD stuff.

Not the one I have tried from Ammoman. I have gotten the full 3100 fps (actually 3,125 fps) out of my 20" AR. That's full velocity for M855-type ammo.

I got 1000 rounds of Federal XM855 PD from Sportsmans Guide earlier this year.

I shot off all 1000 rounds with no problems at all. I love the stuff.
