Reliable and reasonably accurate - slow burning poweder creates fireballon 12/7/2016
This ammunition is reliable, reasonably accurate for close-in targets and overall I am satisfied with them. Out of 1k rounds I have eaten up half. No Fail-to-feed, fail-to-fire or FTE issues what-so-ever.
The only con to these XTAC rounds is that they are using a slow burning powder. Even with the flash hider the fireball is pretty apparent. I would not want to use these rounds in low-light scenarios where I might diminish my night vision or that of shooters nearby. Fine for practice in day light though and I would not necessary avoid the ammo just for this issue.

I have a Tavor and it doesn't seem to like the Russian ammo. It acts like it doesn't have enough power to move the slide back far enough to chamber the next round.
I don't have this problem with the PNC 5.56 ammo. This is my 2nd 1000 pack and I have not had a single feed problem.
Good folks to deal withon 1/19/2016

- I JUST WON AN AR15. IS THE AMMO CENTERFIRE OR RIMFIRE? Posted On: 8/24/2020 By: Bruno R Varano
- Congrats, Bruno! Your AR-15 is almost certainly chambered for 5.56x45, which would mean it can also fire 223 Rem ammo. You will want to check and make sure this is true before you order ammo. Both 5.56 and 223 are centerfire; rimfire rounds are very small, though it's not really important you learn the difference just now. We do currently have one option for you in stock: ammoforsale.com/200-rounds-of-55gr-blitzking-223-ammo-by-sierra. This is varmint hunting ammo, but it would absolutely serve well for self-defense as well. For training and target practice you will want full metal jacket (FMJ) ammo, which I regret we're out of at the moment. There's an ammo drought going on, but we're still getting plenty of new ammo in daily!
