.223Ball(slightly dented)from southernammo.com It says it will chamber but will I want to? Anyone have experience with this ammo in an AR? I'm curious because at 83.00 per thousand it would make good blasting ammo. Private Joker

Well its considerably better than BARNAUL. I have heard that some people have had trouble with autoloaders using the .308 they sell, but none at all about .223. I had one misfire yesterday on a IMI made 1990 vintage round. But all my 1970s vintage Winchester fired just fine and all but that one of the israeli

Why spend $800+ on a nice weapon, and then put crap ammo through it? I wouldn't put slightly watered gas in my car, and I wouldn't eat "mostly" fit for human consumption food. But then again, I eat MREs so maybe I'm a liar on that one. Sherm

I haven't tried their 223 but I bought some of the tarnished 308, which I would call very slightly tarnished. I have fired it in 2 different M1A's with no problems at all & very accurate. I've also read alot of other people's posts saying that they liked it as well as I do. I would buy more if I had the extra $$$ ColtShorty GOA KABA COA JPFO SAF NRA "I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted and I won't be laid a hand on.

Go to the ammunition forum and either do a search or scroll back through the last 30 days for reviews and comments of this stuff.

I have fired 1000 rounds of their tarnished 223 and only one round didn't fire. I ejected it and never saw it again. all others fired perfectly.

What is the bullet weight? Boxer or Berdan? How old? Country of origin? People want to know.....for the children.
