Yea right, like we are going to do it every day [:)] This is just an update. For those of you that managed to get in on it yesterday (more than 50),your free ammo is on the way.Just shipped today. We included 2 ammoman magnets. All we ask is that you shoot the ammo and post your opinion of it on AR15.COM. Good or bad, we would love to hear from you. Keep one magnet and give the other away. Thanks to all. Eric the ammoman http://www.ammoman.com edited for spelling

Since I am the first to post on this can I get some 9mm's for free? Seriously, I have already shot the LC and have found it to be accurate and perfectly reliable. True I had a fair share of dented cases, but that is just cosmetic. At 50 yards I was holding .5 easily off a bench. Did not get a chance to do longer ranges, but I am sure it will do just fine. Now I gotta get more.

Hey, eric, next time just post a topic which says "FREE SEX FOR THE FIRST 50 TO RESPOND." I'm sure that would be just as effective. Anyway, good job. I want some box, uuhhhh, I mean, I want a box. toast

Yeah, after that, and all the stuff I've read here I plan on getting some 20 round mags from him. Once my tax refund comes. Or I get a job. Whatever.

Wouldn't you know it! The one frickin' time I don't periodically check this site while I'm at work and I miss out on a great deal! Well chalk this up to a lesson learned.

No Shit. Uhh I missed out send me some free. Uhh, I want 50 cal instead, send me that. Uhh etc etc etc. [b]I hope you are all kidding. [/b] Remember, Ammoman sells ammo to make a living. This was a very gracious offer and hopefully everyone who gets a box will honor what he wishes. (Report on the ammo.)

Can't wait for that free give-away of those 30 round NIB USGI mags that are on the website.

I would say if you are not sure, then you most likely missed it. [;)] If I get a box in the mail then I will have some business for the Ammoman in the future, I thought I was about number 56 on the list, but went back and was more like 68. Needless to say I'll be one happy camper.
Link Posted: 4/25/2002 8:49:01 AM EDT
I just put my M17S back together last night and it's ready to test your ammo. My gun and I are looking forward to it. I will also run some through my PWA/M&A along with other ammo for a good comparison. Thankyou Eric.

Hey Eric you should only sell the XM193 to members of AR15.com. There is not going to be much to go around and you should save it for you best customers.

Haha, funny guy! Not quite, but it did increase it by more of a percentage that it should have I give you that. So it increased your supply by about .0000002% [;)]
Link Posted: 4/25/2002 3:31:51 PM EDT
I wish. More like .0013% Just in 5.56 though.

The BBT showed up a few hours ago and delivered my two magnets. They don't have any indication of lot or year of manuf. on them, so I stuck one on my refrigerator and it worked just fine. I tried the other on the microwave and it didn't work, so I cleaned it and coated it with CLP and it worked fine. Thanks Ammoman! Great stuff! Oh yeah...20 rounds of Winchester XM193, Lot 6 was included with the magnets. I'll try them this weekend! Seriously...great service for something I got for free. Better service than I get from people I give real money to! Neil
Link Posted: 4/26/2002 4:27:12 PM EDT
Got home today and it was sitting at my door. I will shoot it this weekend and have a review by monday. Eric you rule.
Link Posted: 4/30/2002 9:01:23 AM EDT
I got a chance to shoot the free xm193 that ammoman sent. Didn't have a single problem with the 20 rounds. As soon as I get some cash, I'll be ordering more. Now I have to go over to the EE and leave feedback, per the agreement.
Link Posted: 4/30/2002 9:38:47 AM EDT
Cha-Ching! I had two-thirds of a magazine full of XM193 sitting on the front stoop when I got home. I'll be shooting it up this week.

Hey guys, it wasn't so much about leaving 'good guy' feedback it was about really trying the stuff out to see how it performed & how accuracy was. Post those results here, the ammo forum or in the Gen. Firearm Disc. forum. This giveaway was about a few fence sitters out there who were curious about XM193 and Eric wants to stir 'em up. [:)]

I'm shooting my box friday. While I have no Chrony I'll shoot the box at either 50 or 100 yards. Then photograph the results. Btw, the results, if they are bad, do not reflect on the ammo, more like the shooter. [:)]
Link Posted: 4/30/2002 5:18:13 PM EDT
Kevin is almost correct. It was nothing about leaving "good guy" feedback. As i said, all you have to do for the free box was shoot it and review it. It you think it sucks, post that. Good or bad, we want to hear from all who got the ammo and let the chips fall where they may. No hard feelings.I am just tired of all this beauty contest baloney.Some does have some lube dents and i shot the "dented ammo" that came back and it worked great and functioned flawlessly.No "ftf" or "ftf" The only other thing i asked was that you give the second magnet to a friend. Thanks very much for participating and as i said.Let the chips fall where they may on the Lake City ammo. Eric the ammoman

You mean someone actually complained about the appearance of the free ammo? Mine was discolored (who cares!) and one had a lube dent on the shoulder (who cares!). Fired all 20 rounds with out a single ftf, fte, or any problem at all (this I CARE about and its all the matters). Will I buy xm193 ammo...yes! Will I buy it from Eric...you bet!

For what it is worth, here is a chrono report from some of the Federal XM193 (Lake City) that ammoman is selling. Pretty darned good stuff. This was shot in my 2002 LEGP Also, please note that www.Natchezss.com is selling this for a few dollars cheaper per case $84 a case/$3.29 a box (500 rounds) plus shipping ($12). Federal XM193 (Lot 2) 55 grain FMJ Had my best group size around 0.5 inches at 50 yards: 3218fps Average 18fps Standard Deviation 46fps Extreme Spread 3238fps Highest 3192fps Lowest
