XM855 from Lake City #1
I have purchased the 1000 round loose and the 250 round loose Lake City ammo and never once have I been disappointed. I have been buying from Lucky Gunner for years now and continue to return for my ammo needs. Can't beat the excellent customer service and fast shipping and the prices are as fair as they can be in this market.
5 Stars - these guys are good!
Excellent product and service. Rounds got to my house WAY earlier than the anticipated date (took about 5 days to get to me from point of online order), and not a single jam or misfire. Will DEFINITELY shop again.
Best Choice For Lake City 5.56
Being an ammo snob I prefer to shoot the same ammo in the same weapon consistently.
I don't always shoot 5.56 but when I do I get it from Lucky Gunner. Why? Because the prices are decent; The turnaround time from purchase to possessing is minimal and because as far as I know Lake City has never shorted me a single round on loose ammo. There's a lot more consistency here then you find at most other website ammo dealers.
So - when I absolutely positively got to put some holes in something down range I get my green tip here.
M855s... When cash permits I'll buy more
All of the products I have bought from Lucky Gunner have been great. This last box of M855s had quite a few case deformations... dents and acutal twists in the case. Groupings at 100 yrds still around 3". Close enough for guberment work. God Bless America.
Accurate and powerfull.@ 100+ yards right on the bulls eye with .5-1 inch groupings.Hung up some brake hubs as well bullets went right threw.Had some bad rounds which the shells were pretty bent up good thing I was paying attention but this is a quality control issue.Pricing is about the same as I can get them at my local store so not saving any buy ordering but its a good round and when every one is sold out lucky gunner has them in stock.
Good 2nd quality Ammo
You'll want to inspect the rounds for defects. Most are simple cosmetic digs from bulk packaging, however you'll probably find a couple (~1%) that shouldn't be chambered/fired (bent casings or major dents). Every single round that passed visual inspection fired and ejected flawlessly.
Prices are still high (everywhere) for me to buy this in serious quantities. No complaints at all about LuckyGunner, I've purchased thousands of rounds here, it all ships fast and arrives as expected.
A spectacular business
Too busy to shoot ....BUT, as a business person there is no one out there that can hold a candle to LG.
Imagine a world where everyone is as competent as LG. That factor alone makes buying from them worth it.
not so good
about 8 misfires in 70 rounds . tried different magazines and other ammo--only had a problem with this ammo. Pin placement good on extracted bullets but perhaps, from the majority of favorable reviews above, I may have a bad batch....
Fast Shipping - Quality Ammo - Fair Price
I just received a box of 250 rds 5.56 x 45 - 62 gr Lake city green tip. I ordered this ammo from Lucky Gunner Ammo , and I am very impress with the fast shipping , and the quality of the ammo . I am a first time buyer and I definetly will order again .
Thank You Lucky Gunner . Keep it up that good work .
Lake City Green Tip
I have shot lots of this ammo before. The 62 gr is a few fps slower but is more accurate past 300 yds .
I took the opportunity to buy this bulk pkg just to get my inventory back up to where it should be and thanks to the forward thinkng company LUCKY GUNNER that gives us a "Heads Up " notice I was able to accomplish that.
Thanks You Guys,
5.56x45 - 62 gr FMJ XM855 - Lake City - 250 Rounds Loose
5.56x45 - 62 gr FMJ XM855 - Lake City - 250 Rounds Loose came to the house within the time I was told . (FAST) shipping, very good ammo I like it better then the standard 556 loads. I will be ordering more, price is still to highjust like everyone out there, but lukygunner has some of the best prices out there I will order more from luckygunner
Good time shooting
I bought this ammo for my sons AR Carbon from Bushmaster. My wife and I bought the rifle about 6 mo ago while in a Bass Pro Shop while we were talking on the phone with him. He is in the Army and loves to shoot. We all love to shoot. While home on leave we went shooting, and the ammo worked well...when we opened the box, he said "hey this is the same kind we use". We shot up a lot of paper and had one jam, operator error. The ammo was flawless. Buying more soon for his next leave. This was our 3rd buy from Lucky Gunner. I have referred several people I work with to them. This order was online on a Tuesday, delivered on Friday...can't beat that. Thanks, Dutchdirkk
Excellent Mil Spec 5.56 Ammo
I started buying Lake City 5.56 last year.
To date I have burned through at least 5K rounds without any jams or duds.
As good as any ammo I ever fired in the Army.
Price is a little up there but you get what you pay for.
This Is The Good Stuff !!!
No "snakes & sparklers" here folks. This IS the good stuff. I run this ammo exclusively in my Colt LE6940 LEO
it works flawlessly every round, no misfires, no jamming. Buy some whenever you can afford to add onto your stockpile !!!
5.56x45 62gr Lake City XM855
These are the absolute best bullets I have put through my AR-15 regardless of price. Yes they are getting crazy on the prices, but that will be over by the end of March. This happens every years, not quite as bad as this year because it was an election year and Sandy Hook. LG, not always the best price but always the best service. I have ordered them cheaper somewhere else cheaper but had to wait weeks. If you are like I am you want it when you order it, not when somebody gets around to it.
Great ammo and fast delivery
I ordered (2) 250 round boxes of the XM855 and it was delivered in 3 days. Great service and fast delivery. Both boxes contained only 248 rounds, not a big deal. The ammo is great and goes bang everytime. I ordered (2) 1,000 round cases when they became available and same great service and fast delivery. I noticed a weight difference in the 2 boxes when delivered. One box contained 1,003 rounds and the other box contained 931 rounds. I ordered 2,500 rounds total and received only 2,430. At the current price 70 rounds missing is a big deal to me. Sorry Lucky Gunner but I have decided to take my business elsewhere.
Great ammo, great price.
As an avid user of my SW MP15, I like using ammo that I can rely & know will fire time after time. This ammo does the job & then some, I like that it's a little heavier bullet, thus providing the extra recoil required to assure that jams do not occur (Put well over 2,000 rounds of this particular ammo through the MP, not one single jam or misfire). I've bought this ammo from many different sources, and Lucky Gunner is one source I will purchase from for sure in the future, the delivery was lightning fast, and the product came exactly as described. I will definitely stop by here for future ammo purchases :)
DON'T BUY SO THERE IS MORE FOR ME!
Great ammo, m855's are the only rounds that I have ran through my Rock River AR. 600+ rounds and not one failure. SUPER FAST SHIPPING and a GREAT PRICE!! I will only use Lucky Gunner from now on!
Quality at a fair price
My son is a Sgt. with the USMC ; I had 2 AR 15's custom built at Holding Firearms Madera Ca. He needed to practice with as close to Mil. Spec. as possible. The green tip is full on Mil. Issue & exactly what I was looking for . Very impressive , good punch, clean holes, no failure to report. Unfortunately the $2100 rifle I ''picked up for him is in his words ''BUTTER'' compared to his Mil Issue. I told the rifle maker about ''LUCKY GUNNER'' & some of your ammo deals; I was told they get a commercial discount. I quoted some prices from memory & well... You will soon be recieving many more purchases from Ca. Not just them, but their favored clients. Thank you BIGTIME
Good Ammo, No Malfunctions
Ordered a box of these. They arrived quicker than I expected. I blasted away about 50 of these rounds through my new Rock River Arms LAR-15. Not a single malfunction.
Wish they came on stripper clips, but im planning on using the empty stripper clips from the 900 pack of ammo I purchased along with these.
Because their loose rounds I don't know if that is the reason there are small dents on the collar of each case. Maybe their denting one another from falling into big bins during production? who knows.
But they do seem to be "2nds", rounds that did not pass mil spec but are still perfectly usable for the civilian market..
I was able to pierce through a 1/4inch scrap steel pipe from approx 50 yards. (Not sure of its Brinell Hardness) But I was impressed. It will not pierce AR500 steel from what I've read and seen on various videos. But AR500 steel is designed not to be pierced, but this round will leave a scar on the metal.
All ranges in my area will not allow this ammo to be used. Especially on their steel targets. Which is understandable.
Overall they do what they're designed to do, Feed, Fire & Eject. While providing more penetration due to the steel core tip.
855 MIL SPEC ammo
Never any doubt in my mind about this ammo. Spent many years humping hundreds of rounds of this on my person. Great customer service too and its rare now days. Thanks for that and don't forget the guys and gals still humping this ammo.
These are AP (armor piercing) green tips. They fly straight and true. My Bushmaster XM15 E2S loved munching on this batch. Recoil consistency was very good indicating accurate powder loads. Having worked as a Quality Engineer, I think these are Quality rejects because 3-4% have small dents in them around the annealed collar. The GOOD news is they didn't affect my shooting or round ejection. I only had 1 round that didn't fire however I think that was because I used a brand spanking new 30 round MagPul magazine that had never been in the firearm.
With shipping to my door I averaged....you guessed it $0.556 per round. I searched and compared for hours and kept coming back to LG for the price. Rounds were on my doorstep 3 days after I hit the Enter key. And HEY! Heidi sure is easy on these 52 y/o eyes! ;O)
250 rounds landed on the doorstep in 3 days time. PERFECT delivery and condition!! Loaded up 30 in my new XM15 E2S and got convinced real quick to buy some more. Recommend Heidi order up a few dozen pallets of this and watch it all sell out.
Cant go wrong with military rounds
If its good enough for the military its good enough for me, I have not shot this yet but cant pass up the opportunity to stock up on this while its available. There is no doubt in my mind that this will go bang when the time comes. Good long storage round for those preppers and ammo cashes. Buy it while you can you wont be disappointed.
Good ammo Great Service
We all know this is good ammo so I will save the details. What I do want to say is the service was excellent and I was confident placing an order when I knew it was in stock and ready to ship. That to me is the reason I will buy again and again from Lucky Gunner.
Been shooting these for many years...
I have yet to see this batch of ammo. I'm still in Afghanistan. This ammo works great here though. It's the exact same ammo we get here so, I have all the confidence in the world it will perform whenever needed for whatever reason. The 4 star is due to a better deal came out on this same site while my order was in transit. Figures...
Great Ammo - Best Price I've seen for this quality
Bought two 250 round bricks. Prompt delivery. Price a little steep, but what ammo isn't these days? LG always seems to have the best price anywhere though.
Used these in a brand new DPMS based carbine for break in and sighting.
After initial sighting, consistent groupings at 25 and 50 yards.
250 rnds later, not a single misfire, jam, etc.
Will be buying more I'm sure.
Ammo and Lucky Gunner HIGHLY recommended!
Military grade, come loose as they should.
Fast shipping, good price. When firing a fully mil-spec, high quality rifle, only 62 grain FMJ will do it justice. Went through 500, not one misfire. Dump 'em in an ammo can and hit the range. I remember the hours I spent in the dirt removing rounds from stripper clips, one after the other, ugh. Loose is fast...
I bought 3 boxes good ammo fair price however when I sorted it I found that each box was missing 2 rounds exactly. Not a big deal considering it was only 3 dollars worth. I am not sure if lucky gunner reboxes the ammo or if it was lake city. Having said that was pleased with the ammo & service from lucky gunner.
Genuine Lake City ammo packed in loose box of 250. Haven't shot any yet since rifle not complete.
Will be trying this as soon as receive the rest of my rifle from Rock River. Have heard good things about the Lake City ammo in the past, ready to try it.
Best 556 there is !
This green tip is just awesome. I shoot this in both my SB AR15,and my Ruger mini14 with no negative issues at all. I maintain 2500 rds of this ammo,and another 5000 rds of 556 federal black box at all times.There ain't no such thing as having too much ammo.
Bought two 250 round loose pack boxes.
Took some time to get set up to shoot at an outdoor range. I really did not want to be shooting these at my indoor range at 25 yard distances. First time shooting outdoors and at 50 yards. These were used on the same target as my regular PMC Remington 223s. There was definitely more kick to these rounds. Accuracy was the same as the .223 rounds. I could not see any differences in the pattern on the target between the 2 I shot with .223 and the two shot with the 5.56.
I really like the rounds, but I still will only shoot them at the outdoor range.
Great ammo... even better service!
We all know what this ammo is... clean, accurate and reliable. The best thing about my order was finding a company that offers excellent service, excellent communication and backs up what it says. A true rarity in a world where customer service doesn't exist and retailers often make it difficult for you to spend money with them. THANK YOU LUCKY GUNNER!
Is as good as it gets.
Quality Ammo. I noticed that in the reviews of ammo here at LG , people tend to compare American ammo to Communist ammo and naturally the American Ammo is better. My thumb rule is never shoot Commie Ammo in any American weapon system. Use commie weapons that is what the ammo was made for. The comments about cleaning your weapon after use is good advise.
Lucky Gunner is the greatest place to purchae ammo , whether it be one box of 20 rounds or a 1000 rounds. They are a great company and go beyond what others do for customer service and they are all ways honest and more than fair.
Great value for top-notch ammo. I inspected every round (I do this for safety) and there wasn't one reject. My box was also a couple rounds heavy, so no complaints there! This stuff feeds and fires flawlessly through my semi-custom Bravo Company AR-15. Relatively clean, very accurate, hits hard.
LuckyGunner shipped same day and the package arrived on the third day. You just can't ask for better service than that. Packaging was excellent, the bulk box was wedged into the larger shipping box so it wouldn't get tossed around. I'll definitely be ordering again, more of this Lake City M855 and other cartridges.
I purchased this on a Thursday evening and it arrived Saturday morning... Great shipping and love the fact that Lucky Gunner only shows what they have in stock so you don't have to waste time looking for ammo only to find out that it isn't in stock. Keep up the excellent job, I will definitely be buying from you guys again.
five star ammo
great ammo, no jams, no flaws, clean ammo! lucky gunner is the way to go for all your ammo needs, don't go any where else , your wasting your time. guys, gals, buy up all the ammo you can right now before it is too late and buy it all from LUCKY GUNNER!!!!!!!!
Some of the best ammo
I love this ammo! It is some of the best stuff that I have ever bought. Clean, accurate as all heck and very reliable. You can rely on this to save your life and reach out and touch a target at long distance. I use this through my AR-15 w/Adams Arms upper and it fires flawlessly. Wolf and Tula ammo is garbage and you can't even compare it really. Lucky has the best price for this ammo. I compared Lucky to other places and Lucky was faster on the shipping,cheaper, and all around good experience. With other places you have all these different warehouses and handling fees and they kill you on shipping. Keep up the good work Lucky. Thank you.
Great ammo, fast shipping!!!
I bought 1000 rounds of this ammo and I love it, shoots great. Lucky Gunner gave me great service. I like their easy to use website that never shows out of stock items. You can bet I'll be purchasing more from these guys. I highly recommend them!!
I bought bulk 5.56 Lake City 250 loose rounds, went out to the range, me and my family shoot the whole box!! Great ammo for the price
I bought bulk 5.56 Lake City 250 loose rounds, went out to the range, me and my family shoot the whole box!! Great ammo for the price.
Ordered this in 1000rd bulk, outstanding service and shippment time! quick look over the ammo and didnt notice anything banged up like you usually see with bulk orders. no comlaints here, just wish LG didnt run out of 1000rd quantities. non the less, will be buying more from here soon!
I have made a number of purchases from Lucky Gunner and found them to be a one stop shopping for all my gun needs. From easy ordering to fast shipping you can bet that they are top rated in all fields. I now do all my gun needs here and so glad that I found such a great company.
Great Service, Great Ammo, Great Price
I have ordered 3,000 rounds of this ammo from Lucky Gunner, in different shipments. Each one arrived very fast, and the price for this hard to find ammo is great. I definitely recommend Lucky Gunner and this ammo. Jody, Cold & Olympic Arms AR-15s with Slide-Fire Buttstocks.
