Centerfire systems has 1440rd case for $130. Is this stuff worthy of being shot in my AR's...ur, I mean hypothetically speaking, if I owned an AR.

Me too...

After about 3 minutes of research it looks like this is made in guatemala. If I recall there was some talk about the surplus ammo from guatemala on this site. Time to search the AR15 archives.

AR15.com research appears to indicate to stay away from the tarnished guatemalan ammo. Do a search for "guatemala" and you will find some good information.

I ordered some of the untarnished Guat ammo from Century Arms. It was shipped 1440 rounds in a wooden crate. First case looked ok for the price ($.10 a round). Function was perfect and only a few cases had tarnished spots. Second case ordered was supposed to be untarnished, but what I received was very tarnished. I was at the least very upset and called to have it returned.
I would not recommend the tarnished ammo, although some of it is probably not as bad as what I got. What I received was very tarnished, so bad that you could not read the headstamps. You want know till you open that wooden crate. I am not willing to take that risk.
