    Default Maine cartridge company???

    Has anyone used any ammo from this company? They have a listing on auctionarms - 115gr FMJ - $850/1000rds.

    I was unable to find a company website, only the auctionarms listings.

    For that price I'll pass big time. Besides, did you read the description? 115 FMJ (remington i'm assuming) in new remington brass load to MIL SPEC??? WTF??? There is no "mil spec" as far as I know. If there is, wouldn't that mean that some military adopted it for use?

    SSA ammo is about the same price and you get better brass and bullets. I would just order from them.

    The MILSPEC thing got an eyebrow raise from me too.

    I wouldn't buy a thing with their label. A few years ago someone on ar15.com got a group buy together for ammo, we all sent in our money & the "company" stroked us for over 6 months telling us their loading machine was down & other excuses.

    I believe they didn't want to honor the price they gave & just dragged it out. The guy who put on the buy, filled orders with some of the ammo he stocked up on & refunded everyone else.

    Only thing I know about them is I bought a case of their .223 about 10 years ago at Knob Creek and I still haven't shot any of it, so I can't say if it's quality or not, didn't know they were stiil around..

    and that too...yeow!

    Some other sites say they are ok, but some people disappointed they found they got remanufactured ammo. Some others say its really good ammo. such as http://www.snipercentral.com/forums/...ic.php?p=49778

    But I figured people should known about Kabooms.

    I remember hearing about a bunch of KBs on arfcom many years ago with people using this stuff. I cant seem to find anything in the archives though. Maybe someone with better search-fu can pull it up.
