ok SO...
I only shoot Black Hills 175g BTHP thru my baby... but I'd be G'Dammed 30$ a box of 20.
so on luckygunner I found Federal XM118LR,  500rd loose ammo.

Has anyone shot this ?, noticed any issues...
I dont shoot in any matches or comps, so it's mainly for Range time and to keep stocked.

I was given a couple of packed boxes of the stuff.  Works very well!

How much was it on LG?

500$ for a box of loose = 1$ per round.

Welcome back, Tango!  You've been gone for awhile, man...  <thumbsup>

I've shot the M118LR, and a reload of it (from "Mac's Reloads" - very good stuff), and it's a damn good round through a 1:10 twist Fulton Criterion 18.5" stainless barrel.  <thumbsup>

Wow,well even then it wasn't all 50. <munch> I don't think the politcos are gonna take our firearms cause it would be the kiss of death for there do nothing jobs. <dontknow>

Fail to plan~Plan to fail.

A nation can survive tis fools,and even the ambitious.But it cannot survive treason from within.An enemy at the gate is less formidable,for he is known and carries his banner openly.But the trator moves amongst those within the gate freely,his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys,heard in the very halls of government itself.For the trator appears not a trator ; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims,and he wears thier face and thier arguments,he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city.He infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.A murderer is less to fear.~ Marcus Tullius Cicero [ 428.C]

I have notice in the last few months more ammo cases going through the warehouse each week. One MFG up to 20 cases a night and the other MFG 50 to 200 small repack a night.
Paper or plastic?

OK.....
so i recieved the order from LG and guess FN what

they sent me box of M855 green tip 556....

U G H !

so i have to say i was / am beyond mad
Luckily enuff i got on the live chat and recieved a phone call from thr rep i was chatting with. I was not the only one to recieve this issue. Appearently LAKE CITY / FEDERAL shanked the order they sent to LG.
the box is labeled not only WIN 855 but also on the bottom of the label 762x51mm

so the rep said that he is contacting the main lady Heidi, refunding me 100%, sending me the means to ship the ammo back...
but unfortunatley ... they have sold out of the XM118 

what fukn luck

You'll probably make out better holding onto it and selling it in a week.

Use the "Obama's coming again!" sales pitch.

ok 'nother update
got a call from the LG rep i spoke with from the chat. He said being there were a few customers that had this issue Lake City was shipping out corrected boxes to those who placed the orders.

So... sweet, now just wait to see if i get it this coming week and possibly send back the 223 ?
