Default First Look at Gun Wrangler reman 5.56/.223

I just took delivery of this deal:
Lake City 5.56 NATO 55 gr 1000 rounds bulk in ammo canan

And I must say it is absolutely beautiful Ammo!

It is reman but cannot be told from new.
Actually it looks newer than new and even smells new.
This is a first look so i have not shot it yet but if it shoots as well as it looks i will be impressed.

Looks, cleaner/shinier/prettier than any new factory ammo i have gotten , even than the PPU 5.56, which has been my favorite in the past.
Even though I havent shot it yet the appearance certainly inspires confidence.

The Plastic Ammo Box that comes with it is also really nice. Not quite as sturdy as the steel military Boxes of course, but still quite sturdy and has a really nice locking latch that makes me confident it will seal out moisture.
This is 40 cents around so its not cheap, but I rather spend 40 cents a rd on this than 30 cents on Tula.

PS: This is NOT the ammo form my squibb thread

Looks good. Prices seem to be getting better. At least you can find them now.

Noticed your flashlight in the background. Have you seen this?

Interesting link.
I keep a spare battery or 2 of those big ones.. the possibility of modifying it to make it a almost forever light is tempting...

I bought a couple just to modify. Rechargeable 6 volt lantern batteries are also available on ebay. Been thinking about ordering a couple of them. If the SHTF I can always recharge them off my solar panels. That way I'll always have light until the batteries stop taking a charge.
