Bought some brass cased United Arab Entity 223 ammo at a gun show. Good price, bad ammo! Must have been made by Isama Binladen. Talk about loose primers! almost every primer fell out. Shot 40 rounds before primers jamed up my AR. From now on out, nothing but Black Hills, Ultra Max and Lake City. Any other bad ammo out there?

What kind of upper were you shooting it out of? This is NOT .223 ammo it is 5.56 spec. I've shot quite a bit and had 2 primers fall out. Had the same thing happen with xm193 for what its worth. Is your date code 99?
If you think Ultra Max is good ammo you got another thing coming.

Was shooting a Model 1 M4 with ER Shaw barrel chambered in 5.56. As for the UltraMax, not as accurate as Black Hills but shoots well in my Colt and Olympic also.

I've had problems with Ultramax and Magtech. I haven't heard anything good about the Adcom stuff, but no personal experience.

S&B isn't bad for the money. Shot a couple boxes through my .40, no problems.

A wise man on this site once warned me never to buy ammo from countries where they piss in the water. Maybe add, "or where they have to desalinate their water." I've read other negs about them.

Search J_Smith for his episode with Maine Cartridge Company ammo.

I've read about KB's with Ultramax... Careful

Why wouldnt you read the ammo reviews on this site first? ADCOM has been reviewed thoroughly, and the blown primer issue has come up many many times.

I would stay far away from Ultramax too.

No primer problems period. UAE Dates 00, 02, 04. Mainly issues in the 1999. I have shot over 250rds with zero squibs, or blown primers out of my RRA m4entry Stag Lower. 1250rds stashed awayhat
