Is this ammo decent? Never fired it before. Just ordered 500 rnd case, free shipping at AIM. Hope I get my moneys worth out of it.

Thanks for the link! Looks like it might be a little better than Wolfe.

I would stay away from it. Do a search and check out previous threads. There was a big thread not too long ago, there were loads of bad rounds, some even had the sides of cases ripped open! And those are as packaged, not after being in a gun!

For $179 for 1,000 rounds of M855, when most M855 is going $260-280 per 1000? Somethings not right there.

From what I have read they are trying to establish themselves. State of the art new equipment etc. I have shot a lot of it and only found one I would not shoot. Got to check every round like any other ammo. Usually you get what you pay for but at times a good price doesn't mean the product is bad. I use it for range ammo and save my LC M855 for serious stuff.

I have gone thru over 500 rds no problems all head stamped 02. It grouped fine with my rifle, no malfunctions of any kind. I ordered another 1000

I ordered and recieved 2000 rounds of the ADCOM m855 ammo. I recieved one sealed box marked AML03M010-006. I hand inspected all of the rounds. I had 19 out of 2000 that I deemed un-usable. They were mostly bent or cracked necks, and a couple of rather severe dents. I separated out about 60 rounds that appeared to have minute cracks on the neck. I just fired them at the range, through my SEBR, and every one of them functioned well. No primer problems, no overpressure problems. They all went bang. I fired all 60 questionable rounds and about 100 other 'normal' rounds, all from the same lot.

I would give my 'thumbs up' to the ADCOM M855 ammo.
