After using the M855 in the Army as an infantryman, always shooting and never having any problems, this is my preferred ammo now. It's reliable and shoots accurate enough.
This is great ammo, but at this price, not worth it. (Posted on 11/29/12)

I happen to love this ammo, my M-4 actually prefers the 5.56....and gobbles it up without a fart...
Aside from being pleased I have to say that Bulk Ammo shipping is amazingly fast.
I couldn't believe how quick it was here.
They are the standard by which all others should follow! (Posted on 11/21/12)

I just received my second order of this ammo. The ammo is great and of course BulkAmmo.com was easy to order from and very quick with the delivery. In my previous rating before the elections (see below) I mentioned to buy this ammo while you can still find it and before the price goes up. Well, if you didn't take my advise then, too bad for you! However, the advise still stands, buy this ammo now! (Posted on 11/10/12)

tested it against fmj .223 and it works. it went thru a 1/2 in. plate of low carbon steel. I increased the thickness till it hung up and it does in fact have the steel dart. it was just a bud light, back yard kinda thing. ill comment again once i send this stuff down range. (Posted on 11/2/12)

This is my second order from Bulk Ammo. Once again service was outstanding. I have yet to have any malfunctions with this ammo. As far as accuracy, It's not match grade ammo. For practice and varmint control you can't beat this ammo. Thanks again Bulk Ammo for making ammunition purchasing so easy. (Posted on 10/26/12)
Count your ammo
Review by Rotten Ralphie

I have ordered 8 boxes of this ammo. I understand it was packed by LC, not by Bulkammo. Of the 8 boxes, 5 were short. I put them on stripper clips so the shortage was obvious. One was short 10 rounds and the other four boxes by 5. I contacted Bulkammo and they gave me a credit for the shortage and were very nice about it. The fact that everthing was done in fives or multiples indicates a curious pattern to me. ( I am an ex-cop so I am suspicious by nature.) Count your ammo and let Bulkammo know if you are shorted. They will contact LC, I am told, but if they do not know about the problem, they can't help fix it. (Posted on 10/9/12)

I've sent a lot of Lake City 5.56X45 ammo downrange and never once had an FTF or FTE. Every round went bang. BulkAmmo.com was great processing my order and delivered it within 4 days. As far as accuracy, well that depends a lot on who's pulling the trigger. The cost of ammo is just going to continue to go up so best to order now while you can still find it. (Posted on 9/26/12)

I ordered 500 rounds of XM855 from BulkAmmo, and it arrived within a few days. The price was comparable if not better to what I've seen at the gun shows. This ammo performed flawlessly with no failures after using over 200 rounds. Accuracy was as expected with this type of ammunition. I will order from BulkAmmo.com again. (Posted on 9/16/12)

Good value but performance is meh. Dont get me wrong its great for what its designed to do, penetrate light body armor/cover but its not the most accurate stuff . Indoor shooters might find it unusable as a lot of indoor ranges wont allow it. Still for the price you can shoot this all day and still have enough for a few beers and a nice cigar afterwords. Its pretty good at vaporizing small varmints. (Posted on 7/20/12)

I haven't had the chance to shoot yet. I shopped around looking for this same ammo. I have a local shop that usually no one can beat the price and they had 200 count of this ammo on special and was still a few more cents per round still factoring in tax and shipping. Good deal, hopefully functions well. Ordered Thursday and they showed up on my porch in Ohio Saturday AM less than 48hrs after order. (Posted on 7/14/12)
Good casing, not tot hard on the wallet

The XM855 shoots clean, and I've not had a single failure to fire. The casing is fine, perfectly fine to reload. My issue was accuracy. 2 MOA out of a sub MOA, custom, match AR. Not to mention the seating height of the bullet was not the same from round to round, that contributed to the accuracy problems. (Posted on 7/13/12)

Q: Is this ammunition designated as SS109?

Posted On: 8/18/12 By: Jay

A: Yes. This Lake City ammo is loaded to meet the NATO specifications which will be indicated on the head stamp of the brass. The bullets used are M855/SS109. The brass is boxer primed and may be used for reloading.
Q: Is this reloaded amo?

Posted On: 8/6/12 By: Pablo

A: This ammo is an original factory load. The brass may appear dirty or tarnished from the annealing process; a heat treating process to condition the brass for loading. While all manufacturers complete this process, some will polish the brass to cover this process up to make the ammo more appealing.
