I ordered this because I thought it would be high quality ammo. I was right. No failures yet and it's accurate enough ...

I ordered this because I thought it would be high quality ammo. I was right. No failures yet and it's accurate enough for me. I'm not going to get into ballistics, because there are a lot of folks smarter than me who can comment on that.
However, when I bought it I asked myself, why 1200 rounds? I think it's the only brand on this site that offers 1200, most brands offer 1000. (They have updated the pictures since I bought it. Good job ammoforsale!)
Well, it comes in boxes of 30 rounds and most of my magazines are 30 rounds. I like that, it brings balance to the Force.
I have not researched it, but I think I know why we changed from 20 to 30 round magazines.
I served in the Marines in the 80's and we had 20 round magazines. The 3 round burst was relatively new in the fleet. I think we went to 30 round magazines because you can squeeze the trigger 10 times and get a three round burst even on the last burst.
Again, this is just my guess, but I think they started selling 1000 rounds because 1 box of 20 = 1 20 round magazine and a case of 1000 rounds will fill 50 20 round magazines. Since I have 30 round magazines now, 1 box = one 30 round magazine and 1200 rounds will fill 40 30 round magazines with no left over rounds.
It's a small thing, but I wish all manufactures would start to offer 30 round boxes and cases of 1200 rounds. It's kinda like stores selling packages of 12 hotdogs and packages of 10 hotdog buns. They should match.
Sorry this is getting long, but one more thought. I don't think manufactures should change everything, just offer both options.
The bottom line is I plan to buy this ammo again.
