I saw an ad for S. african .223. Is this stuff any good? I have heard a lot of discussion on wolf both good and bad. I tried it and had feeding problems. I tried different mags and had no problems with the Winchester in the same clips.

I have used that ammo and it works just fine.But I haven't seen it around lately.Are you talking about ammo packs of S.African ammo?

It's decent stuff, better than some. SA 7.62x51 is good ammo too.

I have used a lot of it, and in fact, have about 2000 rounds of it now. It has functioned flawlessly. Not only that, being Berdan primed, I don't even bother policing my brass, because it is not reloadable with my Dillon. Too bad the supply of this stuff is drying up. Probably the best "bargain priced" ammo ever.

Thats just about all I shoot, love the stuff.. Its relatively clean, inexpensve and shoots great. Im an my third case and have not had one FTF..

It is probably the best practice ammo around, but the supply is about exhausted. I'm down to about 3k on it. It's gonna suck when I have to start dishing out the cash for Q3131A.

My local supplier here has tons of that stuff. 55gr FMJ. I use it all the time in my preban Colt AR. Never had a jam or misfire. The ammo is decent too. I group on average little less than an inch at 50 yds with a cheapie scope, the tapco 4x.

Good stuff. Most of what was on the line at Urban Rifle II week before last was South African and it all worked well. I shot over 1200 rounds as did my two partners. No problems.

I like the sealed 300 round packages it comes in, worth keeping sealed in my opinion and notice we do have an ammo forum... =\
