    This 223 ammo is weird. Not all will cycle in an ar. It appears underpowered. It may work with a pistol gas system or with a suppressor. It'd be great for plinking or bolt action, but I bought it to test fire builds and inconsistent ammo is no good for me. You could maybe break it down and reload it if desired too. Bought from an online reloader. Mixed head stamps.

    Comes in bags of approximately 250 rds for $50/bag (20 cents per round). about 4k rounds available. Located in Clinton.

    Have you pulled a Bullet and weighed the powder?? I’d be interested in how much is in there.

    Who’s the manufacturer??

    have not pulled a bullet to weigh just powder but did compare a loaded round to a loaded round of wolf gold, and also weighed the spent casings of them after firing. I can't remember exactly what the difference was on average but we figured the reloads were a couple grains lighter on average. Not surprisingly they came from a company that went out of business because they had widespread similar issues with a lot of customers. I'll pm you the name of them and what I know or have read.
