I have shot about 250 rounds of the southern ammo "dented" .223. No failures as of yet. With shipping it ended up costing 8.7 cents a round. I have also found 2 rds of ss109 in it so far [:D] [img]http://wsphotofews.excite.com/001/bA/s9/79/bx71931.jpg[/img] This target was shot at 50 yards with my open sights 16" bushy shorty. 9 shots total. The two on the bottom are "operator error".

I bought some of their .308 tarnished & not only is it very accurate & reliable, it is quite shiney as well. I tried a couple hundred rounds in both of my M1A's & it worked great in both of them.

It's hard to beat a deal like that!! I'd order some .223 but I still have about 3000 pieces of LC brass to load up. It's starting to look like a winter project.

What do you use to ream the primer pockets? I guess I am going to have about 4000 pieces of brass by the end of the year so I am going to need something that will easily ream those pockets.

I use a Dillion swage, great tool worth the extra money, fast, accurate and relatively easy to set up.

I used to use my little Lee pocket reamer. A time consuming & wrist aching process. Fortunately thebeekeeper1 now most [b]generously[/b] lets me borrow his Dillon Super Swager. It's a little pricey, about $78.00, but it makes a world of difference if you have alot of USGI brass to work on. It is alot faster & very user friendly!!

That's what I am using now. I usually quit after 20 pieces of brass because my wrist hurts and I'm bored out of my mind.

I know how you feel. I used to take mine outside, crank up some tunes & try to get a tan while working on the brass. Ended up being very sweaty & sparkly.

Yeah, the "scratch and dent" ammo is pretty good, just make sure you inspect your ammo very thouroughly... [url]http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?id=56018&page=1[/url]

I'm happy with what little I've shot of my dented .223. It seems that the majority of folks who've bought it, like it.

I ordered some on a Friday afternoon and had it on the following Monday. I live in Havelock NC, near Morehead city. [smoke]
