Worst possible shit you could use.

I've been through 6 or 7 hundred rounds. It all went bang. Seemed like good stuff to me. Their .45acp was excellent too. I need more.

Remanufactured ammo, good stuff. Thousands of rounds downrange over the years in multiple calibers.

Their Match .308 loads and most of their Shear Power Plus handgun loads are good as well.

Link Posted: 4/5/2006 4:53:35 PM EDT
Naw, you wouldn't want to use that stuff. At least not until I have had a chance to stockpile a few more thousand rounds of it.
Link Posted: 4/5/2006 4:53:48 PM EDT
That stuff sucks ass...you should stay away from it.

I bought some about 2 years ago. Good ammo. It is loaded with what looked like once fired brass. Mixed headstamp. Was not as hot as XM193 but went bang and I did not have any problems. I have shot lots of their 357 sig FMJ and 125gn Gold Dot. Also good ammo at a decent price.


For VA forum solidarity.

Bad shit! It blew up my RRA, made my refrigerator quit and knocked up my sister. Oh yeah, it also smells like rancid yak piss when you fire it.

Link Posted: 4/5/2006 5:05:54 PM EDT
BTW, unless something has changed since the first of the year shipping is free with any order of $500 or more.
Link Posted: 4/5/2006 5:08:51 PM EDT
That's what I been shootin' through my AR's.


Did you see any problems?

I bought some from them at the last gunshow in Gwinett, it was priced well and looked decent upon inspection of a few rounds at the show. I inspected all 500 rounds when I got to the house and I had a primer fall out of the bottom of 1 round. I have not shot any yet so I can't tell you about its performance but I was kind of worried about it when that happened. Try posting this question in the GA forum.

I've had nothing but good things happen with Ga arms canned heat. I had a bad primer and called the owner Curtis there about it. They did me right by replacing the leftover ammo less than 100 rds with a fresh can of 500 with a smile.

I use it almost exclusively in my weapon.

That is the kind of customer service I would love but never expect!!!

I just have to try their 68gr match load...
Link Posted: 4/6/2006 10:38:47 AM EDT
I can't stand the stuff. Every time I pull the trigger on my rifle and one of them is in the chamber, I hear a really loud noise and whatever is in front of the barrel gets a 0.22 inch diamter hole in it. To make it worse, the brass then flies out of my rifle as if it were supposed to that and right onto the ground! I can't even leave it there because all of mine has been Lake City brass.
Link Posted: 4/6/2006 1:38:23 PM EDT
My God, you guys are good. [LMAO]

Here's what I know, as I have shoot some 2K rounds and are waitingo for the next group buy (Free shipping to CA needs to be order of $1K or more).

1. GA Canned Heat is good, accurate, cycle flawless in both my Colt A2 and BM M4gery. POI is the same as my stash of XM193 that I keep for rainy days.

2. They are reload, but mostly using once fired Lake City brass (at least advertised so)

3. Since they are reloads, inspect each round before you load them into the mag. I have found few rounds with busted neck that will make my day at range miserable. I believe other ppl who used this ammo has found similar issues.

DAMN MAN! When I did a search of the Ammo forum I only got 1 hit with very few replies so I started this thread-

Oh Well
Link Posted: 4/6/2006 5:49:26 PM EDT
I have gone through a few thousand rounds of pistol ammo and .223 with excellent results.
Link Posted: 4/6/2006 8:10:13 PM EDT
I've been very pleased with their 9mm 115- and 124-grain Canned Heat. The question for me is whether I buy another case or two of the Guatemalan stuff or buy 2K of the GA .223.
