    So, what's the consensus on Norinco .223? Does it shoot well? The brass is supposed to be re-loadable, anybody try it?

    Wow, I havn't seen that stuff in years, I remember buying it at the local gunshop for $1.98/bx.

    Anyways, I shot tons of it, it was always adequate for most shooting, I know some people had kabooms with it. I never had any issues.

    I just found part of a box of it stamped 93 today cleaning out the garage. Like AMProducts said I havent seen it in forever, but I shot a lot of it in the past without any problems. For quite a while it was the cheapest .223 around. It was a favorite squirrel bullet because it was so cheap you didnt worry about losing brass.
