    Federal XM193F 5.56 (How good is it?)

    I found some federal XM193F at a local store for 10.00 per box of 20 and was wondering if anybody ever used it and how well it was before i wasted my money. it is all brass 55 grain.

    This would be a great topic in the ammunition and reloading area.

    Right ON Right ON!

    I mean come on, are these the same people waiting on BHO's handouts?


    Use the search function people. It ain't freakin perfect, but It keeps you honest and prevents you from looking like a lazy F* so quickly.

    No one minds giving here, but let's have a little sense about posting ?'s in which the answers are easily found , if you only made the effort to look.

    I didn't want to come across as an overbearing asshole again that causes someone to get banned.

    If you want to find out everything you ever wanted to know about 5.56/223 ammo......go to this site. You will also find out the truth about XM193 ammo (it's really good stuff)!

    I could not get the link to work, but Google "Ammo Oracle" and you will find it.

    yes, and this question could just easily be asked in the "ANYBODY HAVING TROUBLE FINDING AMMO." thread.

    I came here to get rid of people like you so mind your own business and dont start your shit here. What fun is it to join a forum if you cant post nothing. See ya punk. Besides that i have no idea what dieselsmoke is. I guess you have an ass in every crowd.

    don't worry about it RD. most of these cats have "issues". maybe if they start playing with their other "gun" they may just relax a bit!

    Its great ammo, I would stock up and practice all you can. Don't overpay for it though. $10 a box is a pretty good price, Ive been seeing Wolf for $7.00 a box so I would go ahead and pay the extra for a lot better ammo.

    The fed XM193 tactical is going for $75 per 200 at my local gun store. I have somewheer around 1500 rounds of it setting on the side. I also have a few thousand rounds of Wolf for my day to day plinking.

    The XM193 works just as good and reliably as the Wolf ammo! Good to go, rock the Federal ammo!

    (Yea, I compared it to Wolf just to ruffle feathers.... I know the whole world hates Wolf!)

    I don't know about the whole world, but I dislike steel-cased Wolf (I won't say hate.....because it is an inanimate object).

    He was trying to say in a nice way that you could actually check the forums first and see if this has been discussed. Also, it is unnecessary to use all caps.
