I was bought the wrong ammo and they were willing to let me return it for a store credit. The only thing the didn't refund was their shipping costs. I just reordered what I needed and expect that it will be here shortly. Will update this when I get the ammo. Thanks
This was my first purchase from Lucky Gunner. I shopped around for the best prices and then purchased from Lucky Gunner. Fast Delivery, great customer service and great product. I highly recommend and will use again.
Purchased on January 7 had them on January 10 @ 8am. As usual the best service. Just had to count them, heard stories about people being short. Had 1002, which was good 2 were damaged to where I wouldn't use them.
Good quality but count was more than 30 rnds low
This was the first time I have ordered the 1000 rnd box but I have always had good experiences with this ammo over the years. When it came this afternoon, I decided to count it all, just because. I ended up counting it all twice because the first count was 32 rnds low. The second count was the exact same, 968 rnds out of what was supposed to be 1000 rnds. I am a bit disappointed as that is quite a bit lighter than I would have expected. I would expect +-10 max, not more than a full magazine worth - even for a box of 1000. I don't blame Luckygunner though, as it was bagged and boxed by Federal. Either way, it's all in good condition and I would bet that it will cycle just the same as it has many times before. Good quality and dependable.
A+ All the Way
Federal Lake City 556 is hard to beat with a long history to back it up . LuckyGunner shows price per round , how many are left in stock , competitive price , and after buying incredibly fast shipping with tracking info emailed . Very pleased .
Excellent 1st time experience with order
Same ammo I was purchasing in small quantities before. Absolutely no issues with the ammo and great service from Lucky Gunner. I placed the order on Saturday night, eta was for Wednesday but it was actually delivered on Tuesday morning. I will definitely be ordering from them again.
I like US made but the PMC is higher quality
I purchased the 1K of the Lake City. I had asked the chat which they preferred and they answered the Lake City. I prefer buying US so I bought these. While there is no real problem with them, I had purchase some of the PMC prior. The PMC visual quality is noticeably better,
5.56x45 - 62 gr FMJ XM855 - Lake City - 1000 Rounds- excellent product.
Lucky Gunner- fast shipping and good customer service. The product arrived undamaged. Counted out the lot and ended up with 999 rounds (I had to know). Same stuff I was issued in the military. Never had any issues with it then and so far (several hundred rounds fired of latest batch) no issues now. Good, quality ammo for your AR. As everyone else commeted- hope the price becomes more in line with reality soon- though still competitively priced compared to other sites out there. Will buy more.
Perfect Ammo for my Sig M400
Very happy with the Lake City Ammo and it shot with no issues. Would have like to get it for a lower price but continue to be pleased with Lucky Gunner's offerings. As always fast shipping and arrived in perfect condition.
Going to order here from now on.
This is the same ammunition I have used in the Army, and I am shocked of how expensive ammo is this day in age. Because in the Army ammo is free and repacked for us. But it does the job it needs to and if you have your weapon sighted in correctly using this ammo and shoot like I do, you can have 5 rounds within a size of a quarter diameter at 150 yards.
This is great ammo. .Price, so so. The USA government just closed the only Lead plant for bullets. .....No More Lead.....It will be imported. ....Then you will say how cheap it was. ....Buy now all you can. .....Price with be going up. ...Buy now......Happy Shooting. ..............
Excellant Performence & Value
This ammo works excellent in both my ARs. One is a LWRC 5.56 16inch barrel 1 in 7 twist & the other is Smith & Wesson M & P 15 5.56 16 inch barrel 1 in 9 twist. The research I did before buying any ammo I found that the 5.56 62 gr M855 performs better in these twist. I know I can shoot the 55gr but like many old GRUNTS from Viet Nam I want the best ammo for Lulabelle & Mabel. I will shoot the 55gr if I have to & it is good ammo. I bought a 500rd Box of Federal from LG & am well pleased @ the qickness of the delivery & all was boxed in factory oblong box. I will return to LG for more ammo when they get it in stock. I have also bought two soft rifle cases from LG both came with in a few days. The last one was shipped on a Sat. which is uncommon. THANK YOU LG I will be doing business with you in the very near future. Keep up the good work. Respectfully RgrSmith- Rgr Team 1-6
Mighty fine bullets
I read one of the reviews, he said it was a 11/2 to 2" at 50 yards, mine is that at 100, as far as Lake city rounds that's all I need to do what I want with it, don't have to worry about misfires, by the way my barrel is 1 in 9
Real Deal Penetrator Ammo
This is the best military ammo! Primers are crimped and sealed and the stuff is real Consistent. For what it is - Ammo for fighting - it is great! Don't expect a lot of accuracy my AR (1/7 chrome lined) will group about 1.5 to 2" at 50 yards with me shooting it - so it can probably do a little better. But grouping is not what this ammo is all about. Its designed for shooting back at people who are shooting at you and it is 110% reliable and can penetrate light barriers because bad guys hide behind stuff. I downgraded the performance because of accuracy and it used to be cheaper so the value is down from 5 stars - but really it is good for what it is supposed to do - keep you live under difficult conditions.
I needed brass cased 5.56 for testing … LuckyGunner.com actually had ammo in stock. Was it great ammo? No, Lake City for civilians is always 2nd or 3rd quality. Was it good ammo? Yes, it performed as XM855 always does. Was it a good value? In the old days (last year?) If I did not have to have it for testing I would have waited to see if sanity ever returns to the world. (Do you think ammo will be cheaper in the Republic of Texas?)
Worth the money
This ammo does what it's supposed to. If fires, and well. I have heard this called SLAP, (Slightly Armor Piercing), and tested that. No trouble at all with 1/4" steel plate. Sure gives you that warm comfortable feeling.
Some dents in a small percentage of the rounds. They still fired fine, and dents were gone when the cases were recovered. Accuracy was fine, for the type of round it is - consistent is good. I did not count every round, as some do, but it looked like a thousand rounds. I did notice that the green paint on the exposed steel tip had a tendency to chip off easily. No big deal. Shipping from Lucky Gunner was fast, as it always is.
In short, this ammo is worth the money, and I would buy it again.
Good ammo but incorrect count twice now
My husband and i purchased this ammo thinking it was a good value. We were shorted 27 rounds on our order. Luckygunner.com was great about the inconvenience and compensated us for the missing rounds. We ordered another 1000 rounds thinking it was a one time problem but it wasn't a one time problem as we were shorted 102 rounds this last order. So beware budget bulk ammo that is not boxed. You may not be saving any money at all if your shorted. I don't know what Luckygunner will do for us this time but if they do nothing then that was not such a great value was it? Hopefully Luckygunner will once again provide us with great customer service although this is frustrating to go through.
Very Satisfied with LG.
I am placing a comment here because I just received an order of 250 loose packed rounds from LG and I see they are already gone. All I can say, from initial analysis, is these rounds are very good. Thank you dear. I am very picky about the what I put in my ARs. XM193 good for the range and zeroing in. XM855.. when things get serious. Anyway.. back to my order. First off, LG was great in getting my order to me fast. Kuddos. I ordered a box of 250 rds of loose packed penetrators.. XM855 green tip. I did my typical inspections and roll tests.. to check balance of the bullet with the casing seating. I am very pleased. Then I take a look at the primers, and do my "roll test" to check the balance of the round. After checkig 25 rounds I only found one that rolled to my dislike. I have to say.. these rounds.. which I know are factory seconds since they are meant for the civilians, are excellent. LG, I am very happy with my order.. thank you. And, just to verify.. I look at that casings butt.. around the primer. And "YES", I see the Lake City "LC" inscription with the NATO insignia... knowing full well these are 5.56 x 45s. Thank you again.
This is great ammo despite a few dents in some rounds. I ordered (2) 1,000 round cases. One case contained 1,003 rounds and the other case contained only 931 rounds. At the current price this is unacceptable to me. Sorry Lucky Gunner but the customers should get what they pay for. I have since purchased this ammo from another website and always get what I ordered.
I AM A FIRST TIME BUYER WITH LUCKY GUNNER. I WAS VERY PLEASED WITH THE SHORT DELIVERY TIME. THEY WERE VERY PROMPT ON SHIPPING OUT MY ORDER OF BULK AMMO. UNFORTUNATELY PRICES EVERYWHERE ARE EXTREMELY HIGH, BUT LUCKY GUNNER SEEMS TO HAVE BETTER DEALS THAN ITS COMPETITORS. SOME ROUNDS HAD DENTS AND DISCOLORATION. WITH THAT BEING SAID, I HAVE HAD NO ISSUES WITH IT. I WOULD PURCHASE AGAIN.
Great Product shipped fast!
Yes, the price is high, but that's what happens when people vote for democrats who hate guns. When demand is high and supply is low, the price goes up. Its basic economics people. Never the less, lucky gunner is doing what they do for a living and doing it well. I'm still shocked I order on Monday and it was waiting at my door on Tuesday (In Atlanta). This is a great product, shipped lightning fast, with no hassle. If price was a little lower, I'd definitely by more.
Count your ammo rounds!
I am also a first-time purchaser from Lucky Gunner. I bought the 1000-round bulk 5.56 ammo. This was the first time I had bought bulk. Shipment was quick. I inspected each round for dents. There were a fair number with minor denting, but there were only five with multiple dents I felt were unsafe to shoot. Minor denting is probably to be expected in bulk shipment. However, I was also missing 32 rounds. I counted them three times, with the same total each time. I may not like having to pay double the regular price for ammo, but at least Lucky Gunner still had some ammo, which is more than I can say for other companies. But I also like to receive what I pay for. I emailed Lucky Gunner about the damaged and missing rounds, and they reimbursed my charge card for the 32 rounds in question.
I do not know if the missing rounds were by the manufacturer, or from Lucky Gunner buying in large bulk and repackaging, but I have to commend them for crediting my card. Thank you, Lucky Gunner.
cheated on my bullet count LAKE CITY AMMO
First time gun owner (AR-15) and first time ordering from lucky gunner. Simple easy internet shopping fast UPS delivery. I ordered LAKE CITY LOOSE - 1000 ROUNDS 5.56x45 62gr. plus one box of 223 rem-64 gr. gdsp-speer gold dot box of 20. Read all the reviews on lake city 1000 loose rounds only thing i noticed was one review noted a shortage of 3 bullets. When my ammo arrived i couldn't resist i had to count it, sure enough i was shorted 28 bullets and i counted it three times on the family floor in piles of ten. Oh well, life goes on and the price of ammo goes up! But Lake City you cheated me, i would opt for boxed ammo on my bulk orders next time. I don't mind paying for what i order.....aalthough, i expect to get what i paid for. thank you Harry
Price was great, performance was too. Lucky Gunner has been proactive with service and follow up. Shipping was fast. LG makes shopping for ammo easy with offering only what they have in stock. You don't have to weed through not in stock products. I'll be shopping here again.
This is the same stuff I used in Iraq for 4 years in my M4, great stuff. The discoloring of brass is due to they dont clean it up all pretty like their civillian products. Federal which makes the brass and primers, and bullet designs that the gals and guys at Lake City use to manufacture the intire prduct. The dents in the brass are because these are 1000 rd boxs, where the rounds hit each other in shipping. As soon as you fire the round, the pressure pops the dents right out. So reload after tumbling and sizing, looks perfect. NO PROBLEM. Only warning, do not use in bullet traps or indoor ranges not set up for SLAP slightly armor piercing rounds.
Easy Order, Fast Delivery, Fine Quality Ammo
LuckyGunner was very easy to deal with. Easy to navigate website with quick shipping and a fine quality product. The 62 gr green tip ammo that I received looked very nice and I have fired some of it with no problems. I would recommend LuckyGunner to my friends.
Tough to tell if the discoloration around the case neck is due to the heat of the manufacturing process or reloaded brass. Either way, the same discoloration exists on military ammunition. The small dents discussed in other reviews are also evident, however that is also standard for military ammunition. These issues aside, the ammunition functions flawlessly and is combat-accurate. My 4x SpecterDR has a 2MOA dot and this ammunition consistently shoots 2-3MOA, sometimes better. For a FMJ, non-homogenous round (steel-core does not lend itself to key-hole accuracy), you can't expect more out of it than that. Plus, accurate enough to take a headshot at 100 yards if you had to even if you would rather have a match round for such a shot. Excellet stuff that I will continue to purchase... forever.
Goes bang. Great Value. Poor QC.
Honestly, I expected a little better quality from Lake City. Many of the rounds had small dents in the brass, and this is something that I hadn't expected. I bought these fully expecting to be able to reload 99% of the brass that I got in this purchase, however I'd say that best-case I'd be able to utilize 70% of the brass. Yes, that means that 30% of the brass has dents to the point that I, personally, would not trust as a reload.
I won't be buying Lake City ammo again.
Stick to commercial ammo if you want quality brass to reload later. Functionally, the ammo is fine, it goes bang every time. Not exceptionally accurate, but much better than something like Wolf or Brown Bear.
Although I have not shot any from LuckyGunner, but planning on it. I have shot tons of this ammo through my AR, flawless with only a couple hickups in several multiples of cases... CLEANEST SHOOTING AMMO and it is more fun to shoot as my son says because you can FEEL the pop. THIS AMMO LOVES TO BE FED through a SAW a BUMP-FIRE or full auto rifle.
good but factory 2nds?
I've only shot about 120 rounds so far, but while loading I've found a few rounds that have split necks or some dings that I don't trust in my rifle. Outside of the few "rejects" that I've found they shoot absolutely great. Sounds like these are all factory seconds. Luckygunner has AWESOME shipping and service though.
I bought 1000 rd as I just could not resist the great price PLUS I wanted lots of rounds to put through my new Colt AR-15. After sighting in the rifle, these rounds performed flawlessly mag after mag. I was glad to see the rounds were stamped 2011 so they are fresh to boot. FAST shipping too. Thoroughly enjoyed the process.
Great value for a great product!
What can I say except Lucky Gunner delivers again. Fast shipping, best price, what more could you ask for. Saw same product offered elsewhere at a cheaper than dirt price and it was a $140.00 more than Lucky Gunner!
Thanks to the whole LG team!
Oh yeah I forgot, it shoots great in my M4gery and Mini-14, accurate and no FTF's.
Once again I'm overly impressed with the speedy delivery, next day this time as I ordered before 3PM. We ha! This ammo is awesome, it is the M855 not XM855 and is stamped LC 11 so it is current production not the 09 XM stuff you'll see on other online ammo sites. It shoot perfectly in my Bushmaster. Accurate, no duds.
