I bought a 500 round spam can of. 223 labeled Herters (the casing is stamped tulammo) at Cabelas for 145$. Its dirty as hell and not the most accurate stuff but its not bad for the money. Ive read that the coating on the casing can build up in the chamber and cause problems. Ive shot it through my s&w m&p 15 sport with no issues.

How does that sport shoot? I saw one in the store for 650 and was drooling over it the rest of the week?

For the money its great! Its my first AR so I didnt want to spend a fortune. I got it for 640$. It has no forward assist or dustcover but im ok with that. I put a scope, quad rail forend, vertical foregrip and single point sling on it and still spent less than 1k. One thing i did notice though is the trigger isnt as smooth as other similar rifles ive fired but that can be fixed.

Hell I could put in a new trigger for like a hundred or so . I could put a holo sight on there for a hundred too. As for the forward assist and dust cover, I never use em. I think Rusty,ought be getting a new gun!

Sounds like it to me. Keep it clean and oiled and it will eat anything you feed it

Rusty,
The primer type depends on the caliber you are buying from what I can tell. I bought some 45 and some 223 that were both boxer primed. Then I bought some 9mm expecting the same thing and it was berdan primed. I do believe it says on the box what it is though. Just read the box before you buy.

I guess since it is non reload able steel, priming doesn't matter, I was just curious though. I finally got a 500 round spam can of 9mm para.

If you are just shooting high volume and don't care about accuracy, then go for it. If anyone of my rifles does not shoot a 3 shot group at 100 yards that you can cover w/ a dime, I am not very happy. This is a 3 shot group w/ my .25-06

If I get a fancy precision custom gun, I expect Moa or sub moa groups. But for fun, I just need to get within minute of soda can.
