depends on how much your individual rifle likes it. Mine eats it up.

A recent thread about it revealed that the US Army considers it the ballistic equivalent of M855, it's better sealed then M855, and uses the same SS109 bullet. Ammo Oracle makes note that some lots of this stuff is underpowered to try and make the SA80 (pre H&K retrofit) work better, but I've not had that problem with the stuff I got from my gunstore.

It's not underpowered. The powder is just different.

I am going to pick up two cases tongiht from my local Gunshop. They had it come in at 169.00 720rnd case, I figured by the time I paid shipping I might be there anyway from elswhere. Just hope it runs good through my USMC A4 clone.

Sportsman's Guide, as of 1700 hrs CST, has quantity 700, 720 count .50 caliber ammo cans of Radway on hand. The six I purchased (a benefit of being single) were headstamped 1992, some bulk, some on stripper clips. Ammo cans were painted brown, stenciled with lot and etc. data and opened easily, and were in good condition. No, I do not intend to count the contents to determine if I am short or long-life is too short for that. SG had 750 on hand as of Friday afternoon of last week.

I think the stuff that's showing up here is newer than the SA80 babying loads. H&K did their thing quite a while ago...

yeah, sorry to mention that the Radway Green that i've purchased from the local gunstore, stamped RORG 94, has the same full power recoil that other M855 produces, no chrono.

Compared to Wolf ammo's recoil, the difference is quite noticable
