    I can never keep those crazy Belgian designations straight. That's M855, right? Edit: I just checked, and it is. Whew! Right when I clicked "post," I suddenly thought "crap, what if 'SS109' is some of that stupid 5.7mm stuff? I'd look like an idiot."

    Ammo to Go has a deal that only a real rube would take, but at least it's American made. I have heard of people buying it, but they probably just didn't know any better.

    Wideners has Prvi Partizan manufactured M855, for $385 shipped per case of 1,000.

    However, I don't know how close to mil-spec Prvi stuff is. It'll be good quality, you can be reasonably sure of that with Prvi. I just don't know if it'll be mil-spec. Minor changes can make a huge difference as to whether the stuff fragments. There's at least one brand of M193 which does not fragment at all.

    yep, its M855. I'm leaning towards the Prvi; anyone got experience with this stuff? Thanks.

    No experience with the PRVI M855 but with their XM193 and 62 lead core. Good stuff, has become my go to ammo. I would trust the M855 would be good as well.
