This is top of the line, American-made range ammo made by ATK at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant (ATK is the same company that makes Speer Lawman, CCI, Blazer Brass, etc) - it doesn't get any better.
Note: This product contains steel in the projectile (this bullet is magnetic) as it is made to military XM80C specifications. Additionally, this brass is manufactured on mil-spec production lines which require evidence of the annealing process be left on the brass near the neck of the casing often referred to as the iris. This is the darker residue that is visually noticeable around the case neck. Both commercial and mil-spec brass undergoes this same annealing process which make the brass stronger and less brittle. The annealing process essentially runs the brass through a series of flames which heat the brass having the affect of re-strengthening it in its final shape. Commercial brass is then re-cleaned after it has been annealed to make it cosmetically more appealing for the commercial market. Military requirements on the other hand place a larger emphasis on the structural integrity of the casing so they require that evidence that the brass has been annealed remain on the brass.

Lucky Gunner usually has the best deals and quality choice for this type of ammo. I'd rather shoot the NATO version of this ammo but also use the 308 version. My last buy from Lucky Gunner was Lake city NATO 7.62 X 51 in a bulk box of 500 rds. It arrived in a timely manor and was packed very well without any shipping damage at all to the inner box. The Ammo was excellent in performance at the range and I was very happy with my purchase from Lucky Gunner.
Thanks Lucky Gunner (Posted on 11/25/13)

I'm still a rookie at the range, but I got 13 of 15 rounds within a 2"-wide x 3"-high grouping at 100 yards. I'm quite please with the results. I intend to buy more in the future. (Posted on 10/6/13)
