    Israeli 5.56 ammo - Comments?

    I would like to get comments from anyone who has shot some of the Israeli 5.56 ammo. Typical NATO loads.

    I believe the manufacturer is IMI.

    Anything good or bad I need to know? The brass does not appear to be as highly polished as what we might be used to, but I would think those guys have ammo loading down pat.

    Thanks for any and all input!

    Good stuff. I've had no issues. Same as Winchester Q3131A.

    I have several thousand IMI. Mine is actually 62 grain FMJ, open base. It is very good ammo.

    The older IMI stuff (TZZ headstamp) is pretty good, as is Win. Q3131A. The IMI stuff produced in joint venture with American Ammunition (a-merc), however, sucks, as do the IMI "floor sweepings" sold in bulk by RGuns a few years ago.
