I've had pretty good luch with it myself. Out of about 1K so far I have had one popped primer. I have run it in several Colts. All of mine seem to be from the same run. I've had more then one popped primer in Q3131 myself so I'm not sweating it. It does seem to be pretty hot and right up to NATO spec.

I have had good luck with this ammo and would personally stock it for SHTF.

Well, since in TODAY's ammo reality you have very little SURPLUS choices.... the ADCOM is probably the BEST M855 you will get at THE PRICE. The Winchester M855 is better but much more expensive.

You will also want some M193-type ammo. There is still one vendor with XM193. If I didn't have any, that is what I would buy FIRST. Then M855 after that...

Most of my M855 is Israeli (IMI) or Lake City (LC) from years back...

The surplus market doesn't look like it will get any better... I'd buy YESTERDAY.

I would use the ADCOM as spankin ammo and set aside the Lake City ammo
