Anyone know the quality of this ammo? Sounds like a good deal.

Steve, Is that the battle pack (300) PMP (Pretoria Metal Pressing) ammo, or the boxed stuff with an animal on the box? Either way, the South African stuff is high quality. I like the battle pack stuff--it is a little on the "warm" side, but should work perfectly in just about everything. AFARR

I like it. It is a good deal. Get some!

I bought some S. African .223 from WholeSale Guns in NY a year or two ago (they used to be under a different name). Some of the ammo misfires (fails to fire) and takes 2 to 3 more attempts to successfully fire it. I have had this happen in 2 different rifles with the same results, so it's not a fault of the rifle(s). The ammo I bought came in 200 round, sealed, plastic battle packs. This may have been a bad lot, but, I will not be buying any more S. Africa ammo. Arma-Lite

Check the ammo section of the forum. Some pretty good discussions about the SA ammo - mostly good things are being said about it.

Steve, Do you have a web address or number for them?

I tried it a couple weeks ago and liked so much that I ordered 8400 rounds.

That looks like the stuff Cole's sell for $159/990. I have a case of it and it's good.

Thanx for the replies. Garandman was right. chipo, the ad was in last month's Shotgun News- I left it at my office, but IIRC it was 1,200 rounds for $145. Check the link above.

You might want to call them. EVERYONE is out of the South African battle packs.

I shoot alot of the the SA stuff. I have had one instance where the bullet failed to fire. After removing the round I noticed the primer was dented from the firing pin hitting it. I attempted to fire it a second time and it went bang! Guess the primer was a little hard headed..
