I bought this awhile back

I bought this awhile back (When brass was much higher) and it cycled just fine for me. Just make sure to clean because it is a bit dirty from my experience.
Hopefully it will go down a bit more in price.

Sorry, not saving $0.03 per round to feed steel case to my expensive guns and then not be able to reload either.

The price of brass is coming

The price of brass is coming down to almost the same price now. I would wait on this to drop some more or buy the Wolf "Gold" for about $355 for 1000 or $180 for 500 rounds. Works out to be about .36-37 cents a round.

I bought 30+ boxes of this

I bought 30+ boxes of this stuff a while back, and it absolutely will not cycle in my PSA AR15. I tried it in 5+ different mags and was having all sorts of problems, failure to feed, failure to eject, etc. Didn't matter what I did, it absolutely wouldn't cycle properly. As soon as I used some of my buddy's ammo, the gun functioned perfectly using the same magazines. Great price, but be aware that this might not work in your gun!

I have seen that before

I have seen that before whenever I order over 200 rounds. They increase shipping to 15$. You should split your order in half and use the 15$ off of $50 nra code and shipping only 10$ per order since less rounds.

I just shot a box of this

I just shot a box of this stuff out of my brand new 6920, probably rounds 60-80 through it. I had no feed or ejection problems, it shot just as well as Independence 5.56 I shot right before it. I was using a PA dot ( http://www.slickguns.com/product/special-purchase-microdot-riser-8999 ) so I would not trust my accuracy report, but it seems to be just as good if not better for accuracy than the aforementioned 5.56. This is now an auto buy for me anytime they have some sort of gimmicky get a free gift-card with any order like last month.

This is Barnaul ammo!

I ordered a batch of this ammo through this site's link. I am a BC member so I got the best price (with free shipping coupon). Thea ammo itself is actual Barnaul ammo, just boxed & labeled with Colt (with a modified rampant Colt logo. SPG was very good to ship the ammo out fast and I received it quickly. Overall an awesome deal.

The Zinc plating is supposed to be cleaner shooting than lacquer, but at this price its still a good deal.

For plinking ammo or even training where you cannot collect your hulls this is a good deal.

This is basically a "free shipping later" gift card. This gift card will be treated as a coupon code so when you buy more ammo at a later date and they charge you around $20 to ship it. Since you can only use one coupon code at a time you can't combine it with a code of...say....free shipping!

Also, I'm pretty sure we get gift cards, not coupon codes, since they say to wait 7-14 days for the gift card to arrive in the mail.

No a fan of zinc or silver

No a fan of zinc or silver casing for one reason: it can be overlooked by range masters when performing a clearing check. The metal can blend in with the chrome interior of a chamber rather easily. Not a HUGE deal, but I'd hate to be nearby if there was an accidental discharge.

Been close to pulling the trigger on some steel cased 223 @ 30 cents a round for a while now. Like that this is zinc-plated and about the same price. So all kidding aside, is this good stuff? Better than Wolf or Tula 'standard' steel cased 223?

Not sure about the .223 version but I got light strikes with the 308 "Colt" ammo using full power hammer springs in my 308 AR. I have not had these problems with MFS 308 steel case ammo, they must use harder primers in "COLT". (I have same problem with brown bear 9mm (hard primers) but not with tula or wolf 9mm.
