Looking for any experience with this particular ammo I found a ton at a lgs for cheap $7 a box says xm193 on the box looks like once fired brass.

Questions are is it worth picking up a bunch for that price? Is it decent ammo?
I have used 40s&w ammo from them that was just fine but never 5.56.

I picked up a couple boxes from my local wal mart a couple weeks ago and shot a box out of my AR on Sunday. Shooting these rounds seemed a lot like shooting Winchester white box 5.56 - have a bunch of boxes of those. They all ran reliably thru my AR.

I have picked up a few boxes before. No problems. I do believe that it is once fired brass but not entirely sure

Them Israelis know how to make good stuff. Independance is IMI (Israeli Military Industries) commercial name. Its akin to XM193 made by Lake City. Like XM193, its not the best stuff. IMI also sells the premier stuff like M193, but its goes for a bit more money. I've only heard good things about it, and I'd jump at a chance to buy boxes at $7 per 20.

Went and bought 25 boxes today and I got it for $150 thats $25 dollars off the per box price he said because I bought in bulk it was discounted to $6 a box that's cheap for brass ammo!!!

He still had another 20 or so boxes woulda bought them all but I just didn't have any more cash, there were a few other guys eyeing it after seeing me make my purchase tho so I'm sure its gone now.

I cant believe he can afford to sell it that cheap and stay in business.

Im happy I just got a lot of ammo for next to no money!!

He also had Tula steel cased for $4.50 a box which is cheap from what I've seen around here.

I think the brass is stamped FC. I shot about 60 rounds of it. It is marked 5.56 but the brass is not NATO heavier brass like the Lake City stuff. It's good ammo.
