for a decent price?
Do you have a 1 in 7 twist barrel? 75 in a 1 in 9 is sketchy.
if you can get it from the CMP, you can get it for like $220/thousand. that's cheap. that's where i'm going to get mine, since my buddy has a C&R and can order from the CMP. 75 gr. OTM is what i have in my two home-defense mags. after i put together my 1/7 16" upper, i'll fill all my mags with it and start caching it away and rotating the M193 out. you can use 75 gr. OTM in a 1/9 at 100 yards, it will just have crappy accuracy. it will have accuracy on par with M193, maybe a little worse, at 100 yards. that kind of negates the benefits of the OTM loading, which is a match-grade accuracy round. you're spending a lot of money for M193 accuracy if you use it at distance in a 1/9 barrel. however, the 75 gr. round at closer ranges is great, because of its far better wounding characteristics than M193. some 1/9 barrels will really disagree with 75 gr. OTM, and make it fly apart, keyhole, or otherwise not work right at all, but that's rare. buy a single box and see how it works in any 1/9 barrel you use.
yes i do.
LMT is good shit, eh?
