    From time to time Things Military gets Igman ammo in .223 and/or surplus. Haven't shot it so I can't comment but 15/box isn't too bad.

    Depends if your surplus is Tracer, as well. Most ranges won't allow tracers.

    Ya, nothing like using ammo thats sparks on an indoor range . That'll end once u see your first range fire. Indoor ranges are confined space with lots of fuel around the backstops and some yahoo decides to use tracers?? Yikes..They pose enough danger outdoors(using in dry grassy areas) but using tracers at my indoor range will get your butt fired out the door and membership canceled, all while the rest of the members cheer....Beside the fact that they usually take 100m to ignite so shooting indoors makes them useless.

    Good lord man. Anyone shooting bulk commie ammo is not in the sport for precision accuracy. What about crown land? A field? A hydro line easement? I'd be using that sort of ammo to have the kind of fun you couldn't legally have at a range anyway!

    Please do not fire AP, steel core, API, tracer, or HE rounds in the bays.

    Thanks!
