Lake City is an government owned, contractor runned ammunition facility

in northeastern Missouri that was established by Remington Arms in 1941

to manufacture and test small caliber ammunition for the US Army.

I have shot their ammo with no problem in my AR...which is chambered for 5.56

1:9 twist on your AR? If so it should serve you well, Lake City is good ammo, and that's a pretty good price

Lake City is good ammo for an AR that meets the requirements (5.56NATO chamber, and a "slower" barrel twist for heavier bullets).

Lake City brass is also a good brass for reloading for .223 Remington (after proper case prep). Identified by the LC headstamp.

Heavier bullets tend to be more accurate over greater distances with better terminal ballistics, if this is a factor for you.

If your barrel twist rate is 1:9, and the bullet weighs

between 45 and 70 grains...you're GTG !

Yes...I know. I was relating to the history of the plant circa 1941.

I'm well aware of the JMC ( Joint Munitions Command )... a subordinate command of the US Army Material Command (AMC).

You're operated by ATK... correct ?!

I've been to Letterkenny, PA...

Oh...OK. If I'm not being to personal, what is your status then...I take it you work there right now.

What happens in September...PM me if this is too personal. No PM means it's none of my beeswax.

Wish you the best either way bro...
