I just picked up a few boxes of surplus ammo. It is in a brown cardboard box. The box says

"Cal 223 (5.56 mm) Ball
20 Rounds
Made in Israel"

The headstamps have a T, Z, 19, 80 or other similiar number such as a 24 or 81 ect.

My question is are they corrosive and what grain bullet are they? They were 40 for 5 dollars, is this a good price.

Any info would be great,

John

is it 30rds a box?

I have some 1999 IMI M855 with 30rds a box

IMI is good stuff! never a problem with M193/M855

5 a box is a good price for 40rds

Have fun and shoot

There are only 20 per box, is there any chance that it is corrosive?

Thanks for the replies

The TZ 80 in 308 was known to casue ka-booms so be careful with the 80 headstamp. All other TZ ammo i have heard of was great plinking ammo. Don;t know if the TZ 80 in 223 had problems or not.
