    So I just got the .223 ammo I ordered and figured i'd show it to you guys.

    here's the link http://ammunitiontogo.com/catalog1/...zan-55gr-m193-fmj-ammo&cName=223-556-fmj-ammo

    and it took about 5 days for it to arrive, no ID needed, and the package didn't need to be signed for which surprised me.


    I haven't had a chance to shoot any of it yet but it looks amazing for the price. Here's some pictures of it i took today and i'll update this when i get to shoot it sometime in the next few days.

    Also bought 1k rounds of the same ammo from the same company. Shot 100 rounds last weekend and couldnt be happier. Shoots pretty clean too, as far as I can tell.

    Prvi stuff... it's good. I've shot a bunch of it already and it's the least expensive 5.56 ammo out right now that isn't Wolf...

    Just be sure to clean out that primer sealant. It's the only thing that seems to remain once the round is fired.

    I've got a case of it as well. Doesn't look too bad, but I haven't gotten a chance to shoot it.

    Isn't Radway Green 5.56x45 a bit slower than regular M193 / M855?
