I see KY Imports has IMI 55 & 62 grain 223 ammo is this still the 5.56 load? Also this is pretty good ammo right its boxed not bulk so I assume its 5.56 pressure right.
Thanks,
Mike

IIRC the M855 is 5.56 but the 55grn. ammo is SAAMI 223 spec ammo.......

FWIW, IMI makes good ammo.

Don't get your hopes up. KY Imports is out-of-stock on many of the items listed on their web site.

For .223/5.56 they have the Olympic, the PMC, the Lake City SS109 (XM855PD), the year 1999 Q3131A and the year 1989 IMI Plastic Bullet "Anti-Terrorist".

Once again you open yourself up for a dig about your reading comprehension skills.

No offense intended but the "TACKED" threads at the top of forums all over the site here are very important and placed there for new guys to get up to speed.

It is to your benefit that you take the time to read them.

Whether it's the Ammo-Faq, tacked to the top of the Ammunition Forum, (which cover the vast majority of your Ammo queries) or the "Important Threads and Info" tacked to the top of the AR Discussion Forum, where you will find this little helpful thread http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=3&f=118&t=242923, titled ACRONYMS AND ABBREVIATIONS IN COMMON USE ON AR15.COM.

They are quite helpful, provided of course you can take the time to print them out and read them.
