Has anyone used .223 from Georgia Arms? I have gone through a couple thousand rounds of their pistol ammo (40 S&W, 9mm, and 357 mag) and had no problems. They have 55 gr JHP "canned heat" @ $80 for 500 rds and $150 for 1000.

How are the ballistics compared to M193-spec ammo?

I don't know. Their web site does not offer much info. I think i have a catalog somewhere and will check it out. By the way, what are the specs on M193 for comparison?

IIRC, 55-gr. FMJ @ 3150-3250 fps(??).

I have shot some of their 60gr soft point and 60gr ballistic tip and did not have any problems with either the red box or blue box. The red box shot a little more accurate for me.

I have shot several thousand rounds 3-4K of their stuff. I really like it for range/plinking ammo. It compares favorably to XM-193/Q3131. Lot's of flash out of a 16" with no brake. I don't know the stat's I shoot it because it's cheap and it's POI is close to XM-193/Q3131

I have used it alot too. It shoots as good as my q3131a, and just as accurate. All the brass in my cans are LC with nato cross. So atleast they use good brass. I would have to say I will only use Georgia Arms reloads for plinking around at the range. No need to use someone else.

Pretty sure it's all just remanufactured military XM-193.

Are you thinking of Black Hills/ Georgia Precision? It seems a little odd to me that Georgia Arms would copy Black Hills red box/ blue box new/ reman thing.
