Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, first run brass. Better than expected! When purchasing bulk, low priced ammo you figure you'll get steel cased, dirty junk. This is great looking, brass cased ammo that comes in a plastic bag, inside a cardboard box. It's not packed in 20 round boxes, no extra stuff to throw away. I've used this before and have never had any issues at all. Great buy for the money. Also, the shipping was lightning fast!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product The box was a mess from the shipper, but the ammo was fine. I have already shot some and everything is great. I normally reload my own but needed new brass, this is the lowest price for reloadable ready to shoot brass I could find. I love this company Natchez, I have never had a problem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from STEEL CASE at brass case prices? The only way you can tell is by the box label as this detail is mysteriously absent from the product information. I will be more observant in the future. Other than this order my experience with Natchez has always been great and I will continue to shop with them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Federal - Federal American Eagle Rifle Ammunition these rounds look great. Haven't fired any of them yet. I counted the rounds out into bags 0f 100 and only have 940 rounds instead of 1000. Recount confirmed 940 rounds in the box. I expected the round count to be off a little but close to 1000. 940 isn't close. May try a different manufacture next time.

Is this new or re-manufactured rounds? What kind of primer is used?

berdan primed ?

Asked by: jdss
No it is not
Answered by: Natchez
Date published: 2017-01-06

Why is this ammo priced as it is having Berdan primers? As far as reloading, it might as well be metal cased, thereby having a lesser price. Is the change in primer types a mandate of some kind from a governmental agency?

Asked by: Molon Labe 911
Federal American Eagle is not berdan primed it is always brass cased and boxer primed it can be reloaded. There have been no changes or mandates on it of any kind, we periodically run specials on our ammo to serve our customers well, if you have any others questions please feel free to call 1-800-251-7839 and talk to any of our sales representatives
