I am considering buying linked ammo.

Any advice on taking it apart and is there any issues in separating it for running it through my LMT?

Basically de-linking is a somewhat time consuming but simple process. You push the rounds forward through the links and the links just fall apart.

The ammunition is standard ammunition, and as long as you don't somehow bugger up a round in getting it out of a link, it will be fine to shoot.

Yup. Most of the time you are going to end up paying more for linked ammo then if you bought it loose or packed in boxes. Is there a reason you are looking to buy it linked???

I havent bought link ammo since the late 90`s

Last stuff was Winchester M855 with LC tracer every 4th rd

also seem hot compared to IMI & LC

I pulled a rd powder was 27.1grs on my digital dillon scale

LC and IMI was 26.2
