    They won’t ship loaded ammo to Ca, so I hope the rounds shoot well for you people in the USA. :thumbup:

    Stay safe.

    The remanufactured rounds in 55 grain VMax .223 that I`ve purchased from Black Dot Ammunition have been good so far. Very accurate, no misfires, good brass.

    Avoid Tula like the plague. I bought a case of that ammo and have had nothing but problems with it out of multiple PSA AR15's and a S&W AR15. The case heads are soft and get torn off 1st shot out of the rifle. You then need a cleaning rod to get the fired cartridge out of the chamber.

    These same rifles work just fine with Barnaul and Wolf Steel Case 223 & 5.56.

    When the U.S.A. thirsts, China will sell.

    Locally I am seeing sales for 400 (I don't remember the mfg) for $160 and 20 PMC for $8, that is still about .15$ more than I paid but I like seeing the prices lowering, now to get the reloading components to come down also

    Black Hills started out with remanufactured ammunition, and it was always accurate and dependable for me. Now they manufacture more new than reman, but they have always had a good reputation. Not every shot is for a match score, and 50 rounds of .223 for $10 sounded very good to my impoverished ears back in those days.

    Tula 223 is garbage, look for Wolf or Barnaul! Had a case of Tula that had undersized bullets, and it also stuck in all my rifles.

    This thread gives me a little pause regarding Freedom Munitions. Granted, there are many things which could cause those troubles and not all of them can be laid at the feet of the manufacturer, but...

    Freedom Munitions recently had a sale with $9.99 shipping. Normally it is over $20
    I got remanufactured 62 grain, 223 at 39.15 cents each. Will be fine for range fodder. Took about 7 days to get it

    Yeah, they would probably have to give “the big guy” MORE than 10% off the top!

    I have to give a plug to Black Dot Ammo as well. Their .223 ball shoots as well as any and their .223 VMax is the real deal sub MOA stuff.

    A friend of mine is a friend of the guy that owns black dot. Apparently, he loads the ammo and sells the majority of it to his range customers, so negative feedback would lead straight back to him pretty quickly.

    I picked up a case of PMC 223 for sale for 431 including shipping and tax and they're usually available somewhere almost every day for that price plus shipping. A lot better than reman and the brass cases reload fine. I'd never buy reman and certainly not for over 35 cpr shipped and all steel I've tried have been crap for accuracy. Never again.

    Just read in the NRA shooting mag that Freedom Munitions is building a new manufacturing facility in, maybe Idaho...

    I`ve shot PMC 55grain .223 FMJ and Black Dot reman. .223 55grain VMax out of my Savage 110. At least in my gun, the Black Dot is far superior in both accuracy and precision at 100 yards.That`s most likely due to the VMax bullets I suppose. No misfires or other function failures with the Black Dot, though I`ll admit my sample is small at 50 rounds in my first batch from them.
