Boxer primed...good brass and great shooting 5.56 in both M193 and M855 versions.

Silver primers are OK...the one on the right sure looks Swaged. Can you see the anneal on the case neck? This is always visible on FNM ammo..may have been polished if a reload. Bullets on FNM 55gr show a smooth cannelure or you may not see a cannelure much at all at the case neck. Crimp is a taper type and not a collet type crimp.

Here is a group of FNM m193 for you to compare.

Thanks for the quick replies!

I agree that these are most likely reloads, especially after seeing ammolab's pics. I spent a solid hour last night searching online for pics like that!! I appreciate you posting these...THANKS!

Ammolab - may I send your picture (privately) to the seller to let him know what they should look like? He inherited the ammo and really doesn't know the history of it.
Sure thing!
