Privi 5.56 Ammo - generally good ammo?

The title says pretty much what I'm asking... is Privi 5.56 generally known as a good ammo? I can get a case at what I think is a pretty good price but I don't know anything about this brand.

I'd be shooting it through a Ruger Mini-14 (183 series.)

Thanks,

Bob

It's good stuff. Essentially it's 193.

Whittaker's in Owensboro. They update their Facebook page several times a day (In case you want to "like" them on FB.) They have been very good (fair) to customers on selling the "highly-sought-after" items they are selling (AR's, etc.)

They also post when certain ammo comes in on their trucks, etc.

This will obviously show my ignorance, but what is "193"?

We use Privi 8mm Mauser and 30-30, and are very happy and impressed with it. I would have no problem using other Privi calibers.

M193 is the NATO spec 55gr 5.56 round. It must have a sealed bullet and primer and an annealed case. It is also supposed to meet velocity and accuracy specs.

M193 sold to civies is generally called XM193 or M193-spec ammo, depending on the manufacturer.

I bought a case of it this summer and have shot 400 rounds of that, not a single malfunction and it seems to be clean shooting.

Thanks for the info folks! I was going to split a case with a buddy, but I think now that I'll get a whole case for myself!

I've used it in 9mm and .38 flavors without problem. It even seems a bit hotter than other ammos. I wouldn't hesitate to use it or buy it (again).

Good Stuff, I've used their 7.5 Swiss and .303 British. Accurate and clean shooting. Good stuff. I recently ordered some 5.56 from Cabela's when it was on sale and I got free shipping to boot. I haven't shot it yet.

I have shot about 500ish rounds through my ar and no issues thus far. Fairly accurate, cycles well, and decent brass for reloading. My recommendation: buy two cases lol

Also, I was getting 2 MOA 3 shot groups at 100 yards with a 3.5 ACOG. Im sure I could do better with more magnification, but for a military style FMJ round it is very accurate.

"Prvi Partizan" means "First Partisan". I've got a decent stash of it in 7.5 French. Clean-burning, very accurate.

M193. This is standard Nato 55 grain loading. Pretty hot load that works well in all kinds of 5.56 rifles (1:12, 1:9, 1:7 twist barrels). 62 grain loadings require faster bullet twist (1:9 or tighter) to stabilize properly. If you shoot 62 grain bullet in a old AR15's you won't get good long range accuracy.

I stock M193 ammo exclusively in my lair.

M193 is a US military 5.56 cartridge. It is not the 5.56 cartridge adopted by NATO in 1980, which has a heavier bullet with a steel tipped core. The Prvi ammunition is usually good quality. It does not get the level of inspection and testing that US military or NATO ammunition gets though.
