  • Need opinion on Federal XM 193 5.56 ammo

    Thinking of updating my 5.56 stash, I have the opportunity to buy two 840 round case made 2011 at a decent, if not great price. Is this the stuff that was bad about popping primers the last couple years?

    Never had an issue with it & it's great brass to reload.

    The IMI M193 Widener's has (or had - haven't looked in a while) is very similar in performance. It chrono's a tiny bit slower (maybe 25 fps) but I get the same accuracy & point of impact with it for less $.

    But it is FMJ - you won't get V-Max type accuracy out of it - but that can be said for any FMJ.
    They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

      My ex police bushmaster loves that ammo
      Very accurate and reliable for me.

        Buy it now if you can find it. Two months ago, the Federal XM 193 (420 Round can) sold for $169 a can, then it went up to $189 and now it is
        $219 a can at Cheaper than Dirt! Anyone know why it is getting so expensive and hard to find?
