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 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.

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.

How is one supposed to fill out the rebate form for 1 AE223BK if it is actually 50 packages of AE223 on the rebate list? Cut out all 50 UPC codes? Will Federal honor a rebate for 50 20 round boxes in place of 1 1000 round box?

Federal wants the upc's off of every 20 round box purchased
