I have been hearing many different things about what the x means, and what the difference is. I emailed federal to get a solid answer. Here is their response.

Greetings,

All XM193 loads are the same they are designed under military
specifications. They are not military rejects or seconds they are over
runs they were never given to the military.


So, there you have it. They are the same.

I didn't know Mr Ed had that much knowledge about ammo.

Good to know but what we really need is your M193 duplication load using H335, WSR and Hornady 55gr FMJ, no fair using CCI 450.

Hello, I'm Mister Ed"

A horse is a horse of course of course,
And no one can talk to a horse of course.
That is of course unless the horse
Is the famous Mister Ed!

Go right to the source and ask the horse.
He'll give you the answer that you'll endorse
He's always on a steady course.
Talk to Mister Ed!


People yakkity-yak a streak
And waste your time of day,
but Mister Ed will never speak
Unless he has something to say!

A horse is a horse of course of course,
And this one'll talk 'til his voice is hoarse.
You never heard of a talking horse?
Well, listen to this...

" I am Mister Ed!"

Be aware that anything from the marketing department is what YOU want to hear.

The fact is all LC-produced ammunition is property of the US Government, specifically the US Army since they own all equipment at LCAAP. All ammunition leaving the facility is property of the US Army.

Because of the volume and rate of production, there are considerable stocks of produced brass that cannot be used as it is made during startup and shutdown of the SCAMP lines. These machines perform all the steps of case and bullet forming as well as assembly. They cannot use pre-formed brass or bullets. During startup and shutdown, brass and bullet forming are the first to start and last to end. As such, there are always produced and such production is scrap. Which CAN be sold, along with other scrap metals like brass, gilding metal and turnings.

Furthermore, LCAAP demils reject ammunition, both produced and return. Reclaimed components naturally cannot be recycled so they are sold as scrap. This is the source of pull-down components, from brass to bullets and propellents. Primers CAN NOT leave the facility as part of DEMIL B classification.
