    Federal brand, made in Lake City Army Ammunition plant, U.S. M193 spec, see this site for details of what that means:

    I have already bumped through a couple thousand rounds. Its the best ammo on the market IMHO.

    I'm tempted if anyone else in central MN wants to go in on some. Its $12 shipping on a thousand. (If I got that right)

    Walmart's 40-round white box of Winchester .223 ammo is about $7.50.

    Sounds like this is much better ammo then white box.

    Nothing hazardous about ammo for us normal people. ;) It seems that the hazmat fee varies from business to business, place to place.
