Headstamp "NPA 5.56x45 01" . Painted green tip. I pulled a bullet and put a magnet to it

and it's definitely steel core. I just don't have a scale handy to weigh the charge though.

I'm thinking it's Olympic but not to sure.

It's blown two primers on two different rounds in two different rifles. Did a function check with

Win. Q3131 and same rifles ran flawlessly.

Yep, Olympic. It will pop about 1 out of 3 primers, absolute junk. I had some [800 rounds in a steel white tin] took it back and got my money back. Heard at least some of it was recalled by oly, and as bad as it was, I can believe it.

That's what I thought, Oly.

Thanks everybody.
