Is Fabrica Palencia 5.56mm ammo any good. I know it is Spanish mfg. The Headstamp on the case was 80 and 12. I have seen reports that it is a 62gr bullet. One report I read, says the AR-15 extractor pulls the rim off the case. One of my recently divorced friends was thinking about selling his small stock of it. Is it any good...??? Worth risking your life using it...???
Thanks!

One report? How many frankenbuilt ARs are out there with issues? I have shot that ammo...worked fine for me.

Thanks for the lone response. That was the only remark I have found so far. Not too much out there about this ammo. One of my friends bought it. He was known for buying firearms/ammo of unknown quality....

Can't imagine there's any issue with it as you described. If 62 gr., I would buy it.

That is the most accurate .556 milsurp ammo I have ever shot. Capable of sub 1MOA groups out of my 18 inch varmint barrel AR. Wish I had more of it stashed. Don't know why the picture is sideways.
