    I keep getting adds from Midway for IMI 5.56 ammo "Israel Military Industries". Tempted to try it out, 5.56 62 grain green tip. 420 rounds 170 bucks. Does anyone have any feed back on IMI?
    Thanks

    I've not used it but the impression I get is it is like Lake City ammo or other government bulk ammo.

    I shot a bunch of it back in the early 1990's. It was good stuff. Full pressure and velocity and accurate for ball ammo. Winchesters product# Q3131 5.56 was made for them by IMI. It was the hot lick at one time. I hope nothing has changed with the ammo since those days.

    Dinky Dau, If you shoot some can you give us a range report and maybe chronograph it for us ?

    When you can get it, IMI makes tough brass.

    Cabellas carries it. Local guys around me order from SG Ammo. They'd probably have it.

    Mil spec green tip. I'd be real surprised if it didn't go so far as to have the NATO cross on the headstamp.

    I have a bunch of IMI 77gr Mod 1. I am running it in a 12.5" sbr and getting 1 MOA . Seems to be accurate and consistent. I would think you would have the similar results with the M193 flavor.
