AK-47.net: Discount Distributors Steel Core Ammo
 
    

There are many sources for new and remanufactured M855 ammunition (62gr. Steel Core). Some are excessively priced, and some offer either an inferior product or "imitation" loadings. Most however will sell you exactly what you asked for- M855 loadings, usually bulk packaged and sometimes in a .50 cal. steel ammo can.



There is at least one source that gives you not only new and recently manufactured-in-the-U.S. M855 (green tip), but also provides it linked and in the issue plastic 200 round M249 box magazines. These are available either as M855 only, or in a 4 to 1 mixture of M855 and M856 (orange tip) tracer rounds. Discount Distributors is the source.

The ammunition is manufactured at Lake City, and includes late '90's date and NATO cross and circle on the head stamp. So what do you do with linked ammo? It is trivial to unlink the rounds and package them any way you'd like. A 200 round belt can be unlinked in about 10-15 minutes, and the brass receives no marks at all from the process. The belts are good for photos, displays, and for those who own a belt-fed 5.56mm...

Anyone with an AR-15 needs to get an order in for a case of this ammo. For about the same price as reloads or other brands, you not only get new Lake City manufactured M855, but you get 20% of that as tracers (if you want) and the rounds are linked and in their original issue plastic cases. The tracers definitely make it worth the price as these alone generally sell for up to $1 per round, the links and the cases are an added bonus.

Some ammunition is available on G.I. stripper clips in 30 round boxes, and tracers are available separately as well.

For more information call Eric Salvavida at Discount Distributors:  609-778-7702 or check out the web page at http://www.ammoman.com. I'd recommend getting some soon as it may not last.
