    Great price for a great product. I would definitely order these again when it becomes available. Fed about 500 round and it's flawless. Plinking 400yd targets with success. I'm happy with this purchase.

    Product is as advertised in my view. 100 rounds down range so far with no issues.

    I have fired about 250 rounds of this ammo with no problems. Clean, good shootin ammo.

    Highly reccomend it.

    Just received my order and went through and sorted out the .223 cases from the NATO /5.56 cases.
    The result was 375 cases in .223 and 675 cases in NATO/ 5.56, as indicated by the head stamps. So those who don't know this, a 5.56 case although loaded as .223 is completely safe to fire in a rifle chambered for 5.56 or multi. On the other hand a NATO/5.56 case loaded as a .223 according to SAMM who sets the safety pressures for ammunition doesn't recommend using 5.56 cases as do to their increased length at the ogive which will result in much higher chamber pressures. These increased pressures can exceed the safety of the .223 by as much as double the psi and cause serious injury and or damage to your receiver. Which means a chamber could explode in your face!
    Two (2) rounds had damaged primers that rendered them culls!
    Fast shipping and headed to the range tomorrow to try them out!

    Received my 2,000 round order last night. Haven't shot any yet, but the cartridges were nice and shiny and clean - unlike a lot of other companies' remanufactured ammo, which often arrives coated in greasy shmutz. There were no obvious flaws or dents that I saw on cursory inspection, so they look like they ought to feed reliably.

    Regarding "once fired mil-spec brass"........ I randomly grabbed 17 cartridges off the top of the pile and laid them side by side and inspected the headstamps. 5 of those 17 were headstamped ".223", from a couple of different makers. ".223" is not mil-spec. The remaining 12 cartridges were definitely mil-spec, with headstamps from Federal, Lake City, Winchester, and Remington. The Winchesters also had "5.56" headstamped on them.

    Three stars for only being 70% "once fired mil-spec brass" and 30% once fired commercial .223. Otherwise, I'm sure it's great ammo for general purpose use.

    We recently purchased 4000 rds for our Sea Cadet Small Arms training weekend and shot approx 3000 rds with no issues. Good ammo! Cadets posted some of the best overall scores in past several years.

    Update to my previous review.

    Great ammo! Shoots fairly clean, no failures at all, and only one very slight issue that I've found (really not even an issue)... The cases don't seem to have been fully resized properly. If I load a full magazine of new, never reloaded ammo, and insert it into my rifle, it takes very little effort to seat the magazine. But if I load a full magazine of this once reloaded ammo and then insert it into my rifle, it takes a little more effort to fully seat the magazine. Its like each bullet casing is ever so slightly fatter so after loading 30 rounds in a magazine it adds up to maybe the thickness of half a shell casing extra. I'd be willing to beat with this ammo, you'd only be able to load 59 rounds into a 60 round magazine because if it.

    Have fired about 450 rounds so far. Had one misfire. Not sure why it misfired. I think this ammo is good for range! I just ordered another 2000 rounds. I am happy with the price and performance. Shipping is very fast! Thank you AMMO TO GO!

    Great ammo... Ran 800 rnds through two DPMS AR-15's for break-in. All rounds fed and fired. Will buy more soon.

    I've been using these while taking tactical training classes and they've performed way better than expected . Out of 1000 I had one class one failure to fire, and spotted one dented casing in the box.. They run great and my M&P eats them right up. I've seen no issues with accuracy or anything else and they look brand new. Highly recommended !

    DRS generally gives me match performance at plinker prices. Very satisfied customer!

    Super fast shipment! Rather surprised by some of the reviews. This ammo functioned flawlessly. Noticed a bit of bolt drag at 200 rounds. Pulled the bold and frog lubed, fired another 300 rounds and was done for the day. No complaints. AmmoToGo is definitely my vendor of choice.

    I've fired about 300 rounds of this ammo so far out of my 16.5" IWI Tavor without any issues what's so ever. Great ammo for the price! I'll definitely be buying again.

    This ammo shoots well but had 4 failures to fire out of 750 rounds. Haven't used range ammo this unreliable before and won't be using it again.

    very accurate. Really. But What the review above says, a few rounds out of the 1k i bought were bad, causing some failures.

  • posted on by

    Shoots fairly clean with decent grouping. The brass on about 10% of the rounds was shaven unevenly which caused about 5 failures to feed in 100 rounds fired. Overall it is decent range ammo but I wouldn't use it for anything else.
