ADCOM M855

Anybody have any first hand experience with this stuff?I see AIM surplus has it at 174.99-1000 + 18.07 shipping sounds ok if the ammos ok?Id heard I believe its made by the united arab emirate
or some other middle eastern entity or perhaps made for them?
Maybe Radways a better bet any practical experience to guide me fellas?It is to be considered shtf ammo so if it wouldnt meet that criteria let me know!

why dont you check the relevant post in the ammunition forum: Adcom M855 ammo (what's it?)

I have heard that the british ammo (Radway) is slower - loaded to a lower velocity/pressure. I havent chrono'd the ADCOM yet, and havent shot any of the radway though.

Wasnt aware of the ammo forum thought this was the correct place.
Anyway the consecus seems to be the Radways good to go in ARs
and chronos out as it should.Thanks for the ammo forum tip.
Appears from the ammo forum the ADCOM is good to go as well.

I shot some of the adcom and was less than impressed with it . It all fires and the price was right but the accuracy seemed lacking . If you want something to stash for later I suppose it would be ok for trading stock .

What do you usually shoot? IME, the adcom is at least as accurate as the federal or winchester 5.56. It is certainly not match ammo, but as good as any new or surplus mil spec 5.56 I have shot.

For better accuracy, I really like the blue box black hills .223; when I can buy it for a reasonable price, it shoots very well. They dont have a 62 gr. load though... occasionally I have been able to buy the 55 gr load for ~$.20/rd at a local gun shop (when they put it on sale), but what with all the recent ammo price increases, those days are probably over. The 69 gr load shoots even better, but costs quite a bit more.

Bushmaster HBAR AMMO preferences.

I havent really noticed radical differences in group size although it does seem to prefer the heavier bullets 60 + gr. With SS109 ball It generally shoots under 2 moa at 100 meters with an old 6x leupold tactical on a colt carrying handle mount. Currently Im using
some SS109 marked with a Nato circle cross, Fabricia de Palencia
INI. headstamp circle cross, 93, SB,5.56.Its been awile since I bought a couple 400 rd battlepacks(wish Id bought more) but I was thinking portugese?At any rate its as accurate as I can be with open sights and not bad from a scoped rifle.Im not sure what the best accuracy from this rifle is as ive always used surplus never any match but judging from previous bushys under an 1 in at 100 meters wouldnt suprise.Like to try some black hills 68/69 gr smk,anybody have an idea what the max range this projectile will stabilize in 1/9 twist?

grndpndr, I was replying to Jack when asking what you usually shoot.

FYI, it will either stabilize, or it wont. Range will not have anything to do with it. If the bullet is too heavy/long to be stabilized by the rifling, it may keyhole a target at 25 yds. If it is good at 100, it should be good as far as you can shoot. A 1 in 9 twish will have no problem shooting the 68 gr sierra bullets - I have shot the blue box black hills 68 gr load in several 1 in 9 twist ARs, with excellent results. I am confident the 69gr load would do equally well.

Sorry Mark!

I should pay more attention when reading /replying to messages and i apologize however thanks for the reply.The 69 gr must have a better BC to be possibly marginal compared to the 68 unfortunately I no longer have any reloeading manuals to compare with but the 68 bthp should prove adequate to any task im likely to ask of it.Longer range will be addressed with an M1a or savage tactical for serious accuracy at range.Again please forgive my interuption of your thread it was unintentional but still careless,sorry!
