I searched, but did not see a post about this. I thought that I'd post its availability.

"FXM855PD NATO SPEC/Headstamp 5.56 62gr Greentip ammunition, Bulk Packed Loose, Mostly annealing defects. Best deal for the money. Buy it shoot it and love it. This is last run of this ammunition available."

As of this posting, Widener's site lists 151 in stock.

Annealing is the heat treating of the shoulder of the cartridge. Evidently, some were not treated as much as they should. This should pose no problem on the function of the cartridges, and in my opinion, you should not be worried about a possible separation of the ctg unless you reload it several times. But by then, you could anneal the shoulder area yourself. All that does is harden the case somewhat to withstand the pressures a bit more.

I have shot thousands of these rounds, without any problems!

i've shot about 2-3k of xm855pd. A couple (5-10) rounds felt a little underpowered, but haven't had a problem otherwise...
