Does the 'F' refer to Fedreral??

I was about to buy that, then I decided that if I was dropping that much, why not go whole hog and get the IMI. 65 more bucks + shipping for 300 more rounds. Granted that aint on strippers.

The 900 round packs are cool, mounted on strippers with free spoon to load them. It's a decent deal. The ammo is top notch. I got the IMI as well.

I do not care if it is not on stripper clips. I am looking for the best ammo at a good price. I assume you are saying the IMI is better ammo. Is this correct or basically equal?? If the IMI is better that is what I will get

The Federal ammo is quality ammo. IMI has a reputation for quality, but I think the last time they got 5.56 shipments into the US was in 2001. As I understand it, they are the only foreign manufacturer "certified" to produce 5.56 for the US Army.

To be more to the point, it's probably comaprable to the federal, and probably a better price per round depending on your shipping costs.

A friend and I ordered the federal today. I would have gone with IMI but he wanted the federal
Thanks for all the help
