    Anyone have a good idea on the age of surplus ammo, I'am sure US surplus is turned over at a regular interval? and imported who knows.

    Surplus ammo can be any age. most common from the 50's to the 90's.

    If you are asking if we will see any surplus 5.56 any time soon we will not. If/when we see any it will not be cartriges. It would just be components.

    mil ammo is usually date stamped. ours is easy. other countries maybe need to be deciphered
