    How good/bad is this stuff?

    http://www.natchezss.com/product.cfm...855cs&src=FCBK

    I'd like to get some SS109 but then I think about the fact that I've only one piece that can use it. The rest are .223.

    I almost got m855 but when I was told most ranges won't let you shoot it - even outdoors I settled on m193

    Lake city is highly sought after since its the same plant that manufactures the ammo for our boys in the sand box.


    As for the m855/ss109

    Some ranges will not let you shoot as a rule of thumb any painted tip ammo.

    M855/ss109 has a steel or tungsten core

    My "range" will allow me to shoot anything that isn't federally prohibited. Of course that may be because it's the family property in the country.
