The local gunstore has 800 round cases of this ammo for $160.00. They say it's brass cases, but other than that they didn't have much information.

Anybody know anything about this as I don't remember anyone posting about Olympic ammo?

The .223 stuff is absolute garbage. If you want to test it out buy a couple of boxes and if it works for you get more.

I have some and it has ran fine in My Polytech, Arsenal and my Gordon Tech with O problems.

If any of you all come across the boxer primed 762x39 let me know I could use the brass cases for reloading, let me know what you want for them

I have used Olympic 9mm ammo in some pistols and an UZI. The brass is cheap and not very sturdy, I got flakes of brass in the firing pin hole of my Browning Hi-Power causing it not to fire. The ammo was also not very powerful. You could hear the UZI slow down on full auto when using the Olympic compared to any other 9mm I tried. I still have over 2,000 rds of this crap and am in no rush to shoot it. I have not tried their rifle ammo but don't plan on it either. Just my $0.02

Funny you mention the brass in the firing pin hole. The same thing happed to me with a Ruger pistol and Olympic 9mm. I also experienced the same rate of fire inconsistancies with my Uzi SMG.

As far as their .223 stuff goes, I've used 2k of what I have with no problems at all. I've used it in a Ruger AC556 and it fires just fine.

I couldn't wait to fire all the 9mm stuff up just to get rid of it......what are you waiting for?

Never tried the 7.62x39 stuff......have too much Wolf stockpiled.

The 7.62x39 is UTTER crap.

Think Wolf is bad?

This is worse. Terrible accuracy, every round sounds different, and it's just plain dirty. At least Wolf tends to be somewhat consistant.

I will use the Olympic ammo for training purposes where I do not have to worry about the gun working or picking up the brass. It will get used eventually.

I shot Olympic 7.62x39 from my WASR-10 almost exclusively with 0 problems. Dunno what everyone is complaining about.

Not my experience with the Olympic 9mm Ammo
I had a few FTF's but the Ammo was hotter than my Winchester Duty Ammo
