Is any of the 223 ammo that you buy at say bimart or walmart have crimped military primers?
from my experience alot of it does
My Aquilia does Probably AE and anything labeled 5.56
Any military model 5.56 is all crimped I believe. As in the xm118? I think thats one of them.
All federal .223 brass I have come across is crimped. PMC and Remington are NOT... That's just .223, like said above all 5.56 is.
With my old eyes I gave up looking at fired brass primer pockets to figure it out. I just run them all through a swager and get it over with. Overkill but it is easier on my OCD tendencies.
