New 5.56 ammunition?

#1
Is there a new 5.56 ammo supplier around? We used some stuff on the weekend that was stamped T instead of RG and had silver primers. Didn't seem too good compared to the normal BAE ammunition. (did I just say that??)
 
#2
There is various stuff floating around. I believe it should be for use at training only though.
 
#3
I'm not 100%, but I think that the T headstamp denotes it as being manufactured by RUAG of Switzerland.

its yank i think , did it come in plastic clips ? and the bullets themselves dont have grooves , then its the cr@p yank stuff we have just been lumbered with!

Why is it crap? Are you having problem with it?

“T” head stamp in a slightly curved light gray plastic clip is definitely RUAG Thun. Assuming it is the same stuff that is issued to the Swiss, it should be much more accurate than RG.

Is it this stuff? http://www.swissrifles.com/ammo/index.html#5.6

Why do you think that? Is it based on the assumption of Swiss accuracy?

Come on now Slim Jim, we all like a good Waaah the same as the next man, but just because some one asks a question doesn't mean it is one... Even if it seems bone. Dingerr is an ATO and know his ammunition stuff. Thus he took exception to your Waaah, as it appears that he just wanted to give some advice. Might have been a bit boring but so what? You've got the Corps crest as your avatar, try to not make the Medics look like a bunch of children.

yes that looks like the stuff, we had it for 3 weeks field firing, and the new 7.62 according to the gimpy SF lads. I don't recall anyone having dramas with the actual use of the ammo, no excessive stoppages or anything, just that whilst maybe practical for nice day on a zeroing range, for field firing and certainly for ops, it is impracticle, the clips do not seem to like our speedloader at all and constantly jam when bombing mags up, cardboard cartons of 50 rounds are just a crappy nuisance, they are shite to carry around in your daysack as inevitable they get ripped open in there. Repacking of ammo is also a nause with them. But that is as far as bad experiences go, however, 5.56 link was another story. A LOT of stoppages, now I'm not positive that it was the ammo, the minimis we have got have been caned and the *********** in the armoury clearly hav not been maintaining them to an acceptable standard IMO, but we did hear a bad batch of 5.56 link was knocking around. A number of hard extractions in particular.

What makes one round more accurate than another?
the same reason a porsch is better than a VW, its made to tighter tolerances and from better materials.
