Question:How do you find the rebate
Response:Hi Robert, the rebate ended few days ago, September 30th. If you bough this 5.56mm ammo before the rebate you can go to this site and claim it there: https://promotions.vistaoutdoor.com/EN/US/Home/Brand/16
Question:I see the questions that ask about availability and that the alternate TS branded is identical, but the description does NOT bear that out. The XM855CSF indicates that:
o - is loaded to Military specification at the Lake City facility.
o - Federal SS109 ammo is currently used by the United States Military for combat
The M855BK says:
o - is made to Target Sports USA specifications typical for commercial ammunition.
o - but also indicates that it's loaded to NATO specs
o - says nothing about using virgin brass casings like the XM855CSF
o - produced WITH the same ammo used by US Military, not that it's the same as. Although lower in the description it does say currently used by US Military
o - based on the picture, doesn't have a green tip
o - price for unavailable XM8555CSF is 299.99, TS branded is not lower at $319.99 save for the instant rebate. Unless this implies that the 'new and improved' price for XM855CSF will be coming in higher like the increases on all other quantities in past month or so if and when it is available again.
Bottom line, is the TS branded really identical [minus the green tip of course}?
Response:Hi Paul, we will fix the description to be identical in terms of the specs and quality since both SKU's are identical. The painted tip is something that Federal has Lake City do and that is branded just for them, same ammo though. The instant rebate is just so it is in conjunction with the Federal Ammo. Instant Rebate just means you get this ammo for $50.00 less right of way :-)

Question:I was under the impression that all American Eagle XM855 was the same except for the packaging. I normally buy XM855BK150 which lists the muzzle velocity as 3020 while this lists it as 3290 which is even more than the M193. Is this a misprint or something?
Response:Hi William YES you are correct, all M855 ammo is made by Lake City and it is the same, except for the packaging. It could be that when ballistics were recorded for that particular lot, where a bit different etc. Than you for buying XM855 5.56mm ammo online at TargetSportsUSA.com

Question:I have been a long time customer but unfortinately I live in California. A new law kicked in at the start of this year that prevents purchases of ammo from you to be shipped directly to my house like the old days. Instead it had to be to an FFL dealer. I found a couple gunshops that will accept the ammo but they are charging ridiculous fees. For example, many are charging $ 1.00 for every pound that the package weighs. So if I order a box of 1000 rouds of 45acp, the box weighs almost 15 kilo's. Thats $30.00 fee for that box. Would you happen to know any vendors that are reasonable and that are near my house. I live at 1940 North Altadena Drive, Pasadena Ca, 91107.
Response:Good Afternoon Juan. Thank you for your inquiry. For a list of participating vendors on our website, please click on the following link https://www.targetsportsusa.com/dealers.aspx
The majority of participating vendors are indeed charging a transfer fee of some sort. We do sincerely apologize for the inconvenience of this. We hope that you still will continue to do business with us in the future.
