    Anyone had experience with this ammo?

    http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/AMM275-5.html as a reference to the ammo, not so much to the price.

    Are these worth it as a cheaper alternative to LC and other SS109/M855?

    Thank you in advance.

    Never heard of it. If you try it, let us know how it is for you.

    Judging by the box, it seems more appropriate for it to be named "Turkey Tactical"?

    Yep.

    MKE headstamp, Makina ve Kimya Endustrisi, Kurumu, Turkey.


    I am going to make a wild guess here that it's probably good ammo. Turkey is a member nation of NATO but has no ammo plants currently approved to use the NATO headstamp.

    We saw the same thing with the GGG ammo from Lithuania a while back. The GGG factory wanted to get the NATO stamp of approval and that process takes time.

    There was a thread on Arfcom about MKE getting ready to start producing NATO approved ammo later in '09 and if that is the case then this is likely to be very good quality ammo, basically pre-approval commercial runs of their NATO stuff. The GGG ammo was the same, commercial runs of their production ammo, just pre-NATO approval.
